Moreton Island: Tangalooma Dolphin Feeding Day Cruise

1. Moreton Island: Tangalooma Dolphin Feeding Day Cruise

When you check in at the wharf, the staff will communicate all tour times of the day to guests. Then travel from Brisbane to Moreton Island on a scenic ferry ride. You may choose to enjoy a complimentary beverage either on the boat ride over or the return journey. Arrive at beautiful Moreton Island after approximately 75 minutes and spend some time exploring at your own leisure. Have full access to the various pools, cafes, restaurants, bars and, of course, the beach! If you have selected the desert safari tour, travel by 4WD vehicle to the Tangalooma Desert. With this thrilling and bumpy 4WD bus tour, getting there is half the fun. When sand tobogganing, you can reach speeds of up to 40km per hour. If you have chosen the marine discovery cruise, you’ll journey along the coastline in search of dolphins, dugongs, green sea turtles, rays and more. The purpose-built discovery boat provides unobstructed views of Moreton Bay’s intriguing marine life. Enjoy full eco commentary, provided to explain the habitats and behaviours of the local marine creatures. The "Discover the World of Dolphins" presentation at the Eco Centre at 3:15 PM is optional. Watch this or simply explore the island at your leisure until sunset. Then, make your way to the jetty for the wild dolphin feeding program. Witness a majestic pod of dolphins visiting the shallow shore and see them play together until it’s time to be fed. Follow an expert into the shallow water and hand feed fish to a wild bottlenose dolphin. You will be assisted by the Dolphin Care Team, consisting of Eco Rangers and dedicated staff who operate under strict guidelines to ensure the protection of the dolphins. At approximately 7:00 PM, leave the island and travel back to Brisbane, arriving at 8:15 PM.

What people are saying about Brisbane

I would book again and again!

This tour is highly recommended! I would even book it again! - it should be noted that the port is a bit out of the way (about 15 minutes by car, not accessible by public transport, so plan for additional costs) - return journey by ship (there you get 2 vouchers for a drink, which you redeemable on the round trip) - On arrival at the port the full resort was introduced - Free coffee and tea all day - Very clean toilets and showers on site - Beautiful beach with pelicans - Vouchers for lunch were also included , very tasty - the desert tour is highly recommended, the sand surfing is great fun, but also very exhausting - and feeding wild dolphins was a unique experience - you can book other activities on site at any time and have enough time for them (e.g. helicopter flight, snorkeling, glass bottom boat tour)

It was a great day tour. We chose the variant with the Desert Safari. When we came from the ferry, we were welcomed by the guest service and the rest of the day was explained to us and everything important was shown. There are lockers in the VIP Lounge, which cost AUD 2 (per opening). The feeding of the 'wild' dolphins was a tourist bulk, as expected.

Dream trip

Moreton Bey Island is really worth a visit. The bus ride to sand surfing was really exciting and the surfing was really fun. The dolphin feeding was an unforgettable adventure.

Enjoy nature!

Prepare underwater glasses to protect your eyes from desert slips and consider water. The entertainment of the staff and the number of photos were all good!

incredible experience

a lovely day and getting to hand feed wild dolphins is the experience of a lifetime.
