Awesome time, lots of cool activities, great guide, made new friends, all in all super fun day.

Awesome experience! We snorkelled and kayaked around the shipwrecks, did a 4WD experience through the the bush and the sand, we did some very exhilarating sandboarding (it was pretty steep looking down from the top of the sand dunes) and had a nice and filling picnic lunch on the beach. When I came back from the trip my friends couldn't believe how much I had done in one day, and it doesn't feel like you're chasing the clock at all. Gordon was a great guide and I made some amazing new friends on the trip. 100% recommend, go and "get wrecked"!

First

First, special thanks to the Singaporean guy who was bright, humorous and kind. Sorry to forgot his name. I can see he is responsible and eager to help people with a happy smile. Everyone, especially children liked his ice-breaking joke. Thanks to all crew including the Singaporean guy, we had a great memory of Moreton Island tour (including sand sliding, snorkelling and kayaking), which is very suitable to young people. Thank you all!

A fantastic day with fun experiences

A fantastic day with fun experiences! A lovely fresh and healthy lunch on the beach. Activities felt a bit rushed. I would have loved to have some time just to swim in the ocean and sit on the beach but I understand we were working with the ferry schedule. Beaut location and perfect weather. I’d recommend this tour to others. Thank you!
