Know More about this tour

Your day trip begins with a luxury cruise across beautiful Moreton Bay to Moreton Island. On arrival, board your 4WD and head straight to the beach. Moreton Island is the world's third largest sand island of which 98% is a protected National Park, with no sealed roads, 4WD is the only mode of transport.

Your Moreton Island 4WD tour will take you along Middle Road passing through thick eucalyptus forest, featuring beautiful grass trees up to 250 years old, before reaching 'the Desert', home of sand boarding on Moreton Island.

Sand boarding is an awesome, fun, high-adrenalin activity. Speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour can be reached. From beginners, young children and families to the most adventurous adrenalin junkie, Moreton Island is the perfect place to experience the thrill of sand boarding. Make sure you bring your camera as there will be plenty of photo opportunities.

After your sand boarding adventure there will be time to relax on a white sandy beach, or take a dip in the blue waters while a fresh picnic lunch is served.

After lunch, it's time for a guided snorkel around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks. The 15 shipwrecks located just 50 meters off the beach provide wonderful snorkeling opportunities. See a huge range of marine life including blue and orange banded parrotfish, big eye trevally, blue-tang surgeonfish (Dory) and clown fish (Nemo)!

For those who prefer not to snorkel, kayaking around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks is a fantastic alternative. See the magnificent shipwrecks from above the water for a completely different outlook of Moreton Bay and its spectacular scenery. Kayaking may also be offered as an alternative to snorkeling should conditions be unfavorable. Please note: Snorkeling is subject to tide and weather conditions and may change without notice.

You'll cruise back across the marine park to the mainland by ferry taking in the stunning sunset across Moreton Bay from the top deck.

  • Terrible agency. 6 of the 10 of us signed up for the snorkeling tour, only to find out that we were no longer going on the snorkeling tour because 4 of the group members didn't want to. Bullsht company. Go with another company

  • It was a really cool Tour, was funny...especially the sand boarding : the tour guide was friendly and told us a little bit about the island and prepared delicious lunch. We was a small group so we could talk to each other and the tour guide had enough time for us all. The tour ewas worth it D

  • What a fantastic day I had. It was perfect in every single way and our guide was so much fun and very knowledgeable. The sand surfing was great and the snorkeling once in a lifetime experience. This is a must do tour!

  • The 4WD and the equipment is a bit old and the shower facility is quite poor. The whole trip was not as smooth as we thought because the tour information wasn't that clear at the beginning. However, the highlight is the sand boarding which is worth to try once in a life time.

  • This was a fun and great tour led by our guide Adrian. The snorkeling was a surprise hit and well led. I do wish time permitted a greater exploration of the island but the ferry schedule limits this. Two ideas for making this better: 1 the equipment and facilities of the company need improvement. The male wetsuits were tattered and old. The campsight where we had lunch was very poorly maintained with trash strewn throughout the eating area. 2 the lunch was of poor quality as has been mentioned in other reviews. It's not that difficult to put together a decent lunch. Instead, soggy sandwhiches and generic store brand cookies, granola bars, and soft drinks - and again, consumed in a poorly maintained camp area was a bad experience.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The tour guide was great and accommodating. The provided lunch was not very substantial (it probably cost $2.00) nor healthy (small deli meat sandwich and a side of donuts and cookies).

  • Highly recommended

  • An action-packed day with snorkelling being the main event. It was hard work swimming out to the wrecks, round them and back against the current. Andrew, the guide/driver, knew his stuff and helped less able swimmers. This is for serious action-people only - there is no chance of a rest half way round as it is deep water. A chance to get away from boring coach tours. You will be wet, covered in sand and bounced around in a 4x4 car as your drive along the beach for miles. You stay in your swimmers all day. No toilets (hole in the ground, or wait for the ferry). No roads - hence need for 4x4. Bring sunscreen (waterproof), insect repellent, towel, swimmers and flip-flops as these make it easy as there are no changing facilities.
    I thoroughly recommend this tour. Small group of eight on the day worked well, any more and the 4x4 would be too cramped.
    The picture associated with this tour is misleading - I wouldn't recommend it if younger than 17.
    We didn't get to sandboard as it had been raining so we did a tour of the island instead. I think the day varies based on tides, weather and participants.

  • What an adventure! From the ride into the island to the sandboarding. It was great. I opted for kayaking instead of snorkeling and had a blast. Others that snorkeled near the ship wreck saw some really cool stuff. Highly recommended!
