Full description

Discover Moreton Bay Marine Park and learn about marine life from an onboard marine naturalist on this cruise. Go on a guided snorkeling tour of the Tangalooma wrecks and keep an eye our for the dolphins, dugongs and sea turtles that call this glamour area home.

Choose from a tour where you meet the boat at the Rivergate Marina or with pickup from the Gold Coast or Brisbane. Throw your swimwear into a bag and set sail to uncover miles of unspoiled white sand beaches.

Departing daily from Brisbane, cruise in luxury to Moreton Bay Marine Park aboard the modern, air-conditioned catamaran Spirit of Migaloo II. Here enjoy the freedom to do as much or as little as you please with all activities included and no local fees.

Dive in and snorkel the fifteen shipwrecks that have been deliberately sunk just off the coastline with an abundance of spectacular coral formations and colorful marine life that needs to be seen to be believed. No experience is required and all equipment and water safety items are provided.

Afterwards, join our naturalist guides in a fish-feeding session with the 200 species that frequent the area. Satisfy your appetite with a gourmet tropical buffet featuring ocean king prawns, and quench your thirst with a glass of local wine, craft beer or frozen cocktail.

Take the time to relax, enjoy free island time on the pristine white-sand beach. Kayak on sheltered crystal-clear waters, join a game with complimentary beach sporting equipment, or simply kick back and soak in the serenity.

Watch out for some of Queensland’s best marine wildlife in this area that is home to one of the largest populations of bottlenose dolphins in Australia. Feel the joy of seeing them jump and play in turquoise waters.

Search for six of the world’s seven species of sea turtles and herds of shy and gentle dugongs in one of the world’s remaining strongholds for this species.

Get help from the onboard marine naturalists that have been working with these incredible animals for over a decade and have the experience to give you the closest wildlife encounters possible.

It was the best experience. Crews were very friendly and hardworking. They looked after you throughout the trip. From picking up from the venue, serving breakfast and lunch, training on how to use snorkelling equipment, being guide in every steps, dropping us back to the pickup address. Huge thank you to the crews. Best experience was snorkelling around the wreck and the view of different fishes there. And kayaking was fun too. Truely the best experience ever.

Brilliant day! The boat is modern, very comfortable and very clean (good toilets), with very friendly, helpful staff. You start the morning with tea/coffee and muffins, travel over to the island, one group have a delicious lunch while the others snorkel the reef covered wrecks (no feeling of being rushed or restricted). And then the groups swap. The lunch group also get to go to the island to swim or kayak. Awesome.
