      Not a bad day but read the fine print.
      Staff are extremely friendly and try their best to ensure you have a great day, very helpful with all questions and concerns. Pricing is not bad considering the ferry is included in your day pass. Resort facilities are ok but handy to have access to. The wrecks are 1.7km beach walk from the equipment hire area. Kayaks can be used to get you from point to point however the current is extremely strong and so at least one way will be very hard if you are not a regular kayaker. Snorkeling from the beach to the reef is approximately 70-100 meters depending on the tide and once again can be difficult when fighting the current. There is another equipment hire company at the reef but you would still need to get there on your own. Although advertised on the website, we did not realise until the day that despite paying your fee for the day, you are still required to put down a $50 deposit per person before using the equipment. Although I gather it will be described as a ‘bank issue’, it has been 7 days and the money has still not been returned to our account. If I was to return to Moreton Island I would do one of the boat tours that take you to the actual wreck itself. At least that way you are guaranteed to see them up close regardless of tide conditions.

      Nice island, but rude staff and chaotic system.
      I agree with Erica here. The day itself was fine but some of the staff are rude and treat you like you are stupid if you make a mistake with the equipment. For example if you rinse the snorkel gear in the wrong place you get staff rudely telling you about it and that you should have listened at the start. Nothing is labelled or clearly marked and the process of getting gear was chaotic. The staff rush through the information with you so it’s hard to remember everything. If they want things to go as they want they need to organise the system and label wash stations etc instead of it being one big free for all. The island itself was beautiful and the trip was reasonably cheap. Boat ride over was good. So it will get 2 stars because of that. If you get stressed out easily then this tour is probably not for you.

      Visit to St Helena Island Brisbane
      The boat left Manly Harbour at 10.00am and returned at 3.00pm. It was a really outstanding day. Three characters cum tour guides remained in character throughout the day and performed various aspects of the island's history which is so close to Brisbane. Our family aged from 10yrs to mid 70's enjoyed the humorous, knowledgable and entertaining day. There was even a van for those that weren't up to walking the 5 kms or so. I highly recommend the tour.

      Great 'value' day out
      We got the ferry from Brisbane. There's ample free street parking outside the terminal or $20 to park for the day in the terminal. Staff at check in, on the boat and on the island were great. This trip includes 3 hours of kayak and snorkel hire, 1 hour stand up paddle board hire and use of the resorts facilities. Recommend hiring the kayak and snorkel together, kayak to the shipwrecks and then swim out to them. It is quite a way out though so you need to be a strong swimmer! Visibility around the wrecks isn't the best. Can snorkel in the shallows too and see fishes and baby rays. Hot showers available where you hire the equipment from. Pool tables in the B&B bar. Recommend bringing your own packed lunch, sunscreen and plenty of water.

      Awful end to an otherwise terrific holiday in Australia
      My husband and I booked this tour last minute after being told of the beauty of Moreton Island. I wished we never had!! The island itself is beautiful, but everything else revolving around it is just utterly horrific! - Information provided upon booking was very inconsistent, instructing us to meet at the docks: 0 min, 30 min or 60 min before departure… all on the same ticket! - After landing in Moreton, we were herded to some tables where we had to fill out a formular and decide which activities we wanted to participate. We had paid extra for the snorkeling guided tour so they told us to proceed to the sport equipment renting shop. There the circus started: we have previously rented fins and wet suits at many different locations across Queensland and Moreton was by far the most ridiculously disorganized system I have ever seen: queue a first time just to tell what you need, a second queue for the fins where we stood with other people for over 10 min without anybody from the staff showing up, queue a third time for the dirtiest, most worn out wet suit I have ever seen. Are you done after that? NO! Now you have to fill ANOTHER formular with some rude stuff members. Then came the briefing and waiting for the boat - tour was supposed to start at 9:45, we weren’t on the boat until 10:30… - The boat takes 5 min to reach the wrecks and the snorkeling tour lasted 30min - ridiculously short given we had spent over an hour being made ready for it. And unfortunately: it was NOT worth the wait! Moreton wasn’t too crowded on the day of our visit and yet I can’t tell you how many snorkelers, divers, people in kayak are at the wrecks - I was hit twice by kayaks, which is unavoidable in those conditions. The guide barely gave any info, her only preoccupation was getting us at the other end of the site within 30min and kept ordering us to keep going. We were then rushed to the boat because “we have go pick up the next tour”. What a rip off! - Lunch: if your expectations are at the level of the worst fast food you’ve ever had, you’ll be disappointed: it is worse! We had calamari and fish that tasted like rubber, undercooked chips, a burger as dry as a bone. Food on the island is simply disgusting! We were so let down we decided to take an earlier ferry back to Brisbane. And just so you know: it may be 2022 but the ferry operator believes we are still in the 90’s. You booked online? You still have to line to get your ferry pass - once in Brisbane and once in Moreton, or they won’t let you on board. Save your money and plan something else if you are in Brisbane!

      ATV , lunch and ferry tour
      Anyone going to Tangalooma for the day have to include this in your day. Huon took us out for a great ride on the ATVs, the group was a bit slow but Huon made the effort to take us apart from the group for a bit more fun. Highly recommended 😊

      Snorkeling
      The night after I went snorkelling I developed a sore throat. My throat was burning!!! I was treated for a bacterial throat infection. The staff don’t monitor customers cleaning their snorkel which is a quick dunk in water which I hope did have antiseptic. And clearly they staff don’t do any further cleaning. Avoid if you want to be sick.

      The island is great, just book through someone else
      Summary: The island is beautiful and worth visiting. A lot of the positive reviews are about the island itself, not this company. So, visit!! Just book through basically anyone else. When we spoke with the resort staff about our problems they were very kind and seemed to care. You can definitely do better! They are rude and have ridiculous policies that are discriminatory. They do not seem to care at all whether their patrons are safe. They simply want to make money and be able to place blame on others when things go wrong. Further you have very little control over when you do things on the island. They booked our boat tour during the only time the restaurants were open for lunch. Hope you want a muffin for lunch!! They also failed to notify us that the island water was contaminated with ECOLI! And had been for months. So, hand washing was a problem, and all food and water was concerning. I was pregnant and didn’t find out till I arrived, and it’s a lot easier to catch when pregnant and definitely a huge problem. They said “blame the resort”. Well, the resort had a warning. I very much wish we had booked a different way.

      Moreton Island Left Us Wanting More.
      An early start (7.00am), at Brisbane Coach & Train Station for coach to the ferry. A Bostin hot day and got hotter as the day went on! We booked with Sunset Safari's where we were met a really friendly bunch of guides in Chris and Zak etc.This was our first time on anything like this, we were totally blown away as we approached Moreton Island, all we saw was crystal clear blue water and golden sands! We went for the day trip, our coach was a 4x4 coach! There journey was toally Bostin, we strapped ourselves in and off we bounced over the sand dunes, down and along deep sand tracks, through a forest track and along beach after beach like Spitfire Beach and Braydon Beach, as the sea waves crashed in! After a lunch, we visited Honeymoon Bay, North Point, North Point Lighthouse and Blue Lagoon for a paddle! The time just flew by, but we were well looked after, well fed and had a totally PURE BOSTIN time! Well worth a visit. Thank you all at Sunset Safari's for a Bostin time!

      Positives: The island was beautiful and being able to access all the resort facilities was good. The staff on the resort was lovely and super helpful! Negatives: Firstly being told to get to the ferry port at 6am was insane. No way you need to be there that early. Secondly on our information email it said someone would meet us off the boat... this didn’t happen. A group of us were wandering round trying to figure out where to go for a good while... ended up having to ask at main reception, this really was unorganised.

    I know they cannot control the weather but, conditions were not good the day before and were forecasted for strong winds on our day (didn’t know). When we arrived we couldn’t do any of the water features. I couldn’t do any of the land features from other vendors because everyone on the island booked those excursions due the poor water conditions. Whole day was a bust! Partial good news is that we received a 45% refund. Owner called day prior to ask if I could go another day (couldn’t because we were leaving), at that point it would have been appropriate to be clear about the island potential conditions due to the forecast and give me the opportunity to cancel and get a full refund. $128 gone to a very frustrating day. Recommend to book land excursions prior to arrival and bring snorkeling gear. Island has some amazing opportunities, activities just get over run on busy days.
