We had a great trip to Moreton island. The crew was always helpful, kind and caring. If you want to see the island for a day (more like half a day) it’s great! I definitely recommend it! I suggest to book the tour maybe from Brisbane because it’s a long drive to/from Gold Coast. Also, make sure to pick good weather conditions (ideally sunny with no wind) in order to enjoy the turtle viewing and snorkeling. It was my first time snorkeling and I felt very comfortable and safe with the guides. The water was not always clear but overall it was a very enjoyable experience!

Genuinely can’t recommend enough. We we’re running late and the help chat was great as they contacted the company. Once on the island all the activities ran smoothly and we’re so much fun! The clear kayaking and snorkelling were incredible and so was the sandboarding. All of the crew were so lovely and helping and really made the day. The lunch was basic so we bought snacks but they weren’t really needed as we didn’t have a minute to rest (which I’m definitely not complaining about) 10/10 will be rebooking again!

Loved snorkelling, such an amazing experience. The island is so beautiful and the instructors were very nice. Will have to go back for a longer trip!

Even though we were terrible unlucky with the weather it was a great tour with a lot of activities included that made our day fantastic

It was fun and saw lot of fishes , the sand experience was funny Food was good too I would do it again
