Full description
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, sea cucumbers, 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.

The island is magical, beautiful scenery, calm waters, lot of fish... facilities are supergood, too, and there are plenty of activities to choose from, I regret coming only for a day, it would be really worth staying the night. What was a bit disappointing though is that I felt money matters more than giving the best experience, e.g. the dolphin feeding includes a photo but it turns out to be a really low resolution version that you cannot use for anything basically, but of course for extra money you can buy the high resolution version, or the snorkelling tour is with soooo many people and you have to swim through so quickly that you cannot fully enjoy. I took a lot of tours in Australia and everywhere I felt I was getting more than promised, this was the first time I didn't have this experience. But the island itself is really paradise.

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.

Really lovely day and well organised. Dolphins amazing to feed but felt a bit ‘shuttled’ in our line by the guide and after waiting so long, it was over in seconds and was very quickly ushered out of the sea to get the next person in. Maybe just our guide I think
