The white sand beaches and dunes of Moreton Island are part of the protected Moreton Bay Marine Park, and lie just a short boat ride from Brisbane. On this full-day cruise, set sail from Fortitude Valley and spend the day swimming and snorkelling in Moreton Bay. Enjoy a thrilling ride in a boom net, dive in to snorkel at Tangalooma Wrecks (optional), and spot dolphins and sea turtles on an eco cruise of the marine park.

Pair a classic Australian adventure, boom netting, with epic marine wildlife on this Moreton Bay Marine Park and Moreton Island experience. Look for dolphins, turtles, dugong, and even whales in season; race over the waters in a net secured to the back of the boat; lounge on a golden sand beach; and feast on a lunch of prawns and roast chicken. Add a guided snorkeling trip for an additional fee.

Lisa and crew are great hosts. Got to see whales, dugongs, dolphins and turtles. Great commentary about wildlife and history of the area. Plentiful lunch of ham, prawns, cheese and chicken. Plenty of time to spend on Morton Bay and generally relaxing. Thoroughly recommend.
