Full description
Start your day at the Newport Marina with check in on the boat at 8:00 AM with tea, coffee, and biscuits. Take a leisurely 55 minute cruise to Moreton Island, stopping along the way if any dolphins or whales are spotted. On arrival to the island jump straight into the water for an action packed Boom-netting ride. Climb on the net and ride it behind the boat for an early morning adrenaline rush. Following this, head over to the Tangalooma Wrecks where you will start your optional 1 hour (optional extra) Guided Snorkeling and Fish Feeding Tour. This costs 20 Australian Dollars extra per person and is payable on the day of the activity. You must be able to swim in order to participate in this activity. Enjoy some free time on the beach at Moreton Island to swim, sunbathe, and climb the famous sand hills before returning to the boat for a fresh healthy lunch of local prawns, leg ham, salad, bread rolls, and roast chicken. Head to the bar, grab a cold drink, sit back and relax on the beach or the boat to take in the picturesque scenery while enjoying your lunch. The afternoon will conclude with a relaxing Eco Marine Safari, cruising the calm shallow water spotting Dolphins, Dugongs, Turtles and other local marine life. Learn from the full commentary explaining the history of the Island and local marine life and habitat. The boat will return to Newport Marina at approximately 4:00 PM.

Anyone who wants to snorkel must pay $20 to join a guided tour - think big group of mixed ability in the mainstream part of the wrecks. Independent snorkelling is unfortunately not permitted by the operators of this tour - there is no regulation or other restriction on independent snorkelling. Other tours would be better for experienced snorkellers to explore freely.
