Spent an amazing day being chaperoned by local guides around Moreton Island. From the description and cost, I imagined a more curated and private experience but as it was (older bus and public ferry) it was still a great time. We chose this tour because it offered the most activities in one day, and the day is full and definitely keeps you moving. The guides were professional and friendly but don't be expecting too much educational input. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Moreton island and lagoon is very beautiful.

Very relaxing bus trip to docks - Chris was excellent - very welcoming - outlined what the day was going to look like. Nice smooth ferry ride to Moreton Island. Activities include snorkelling, kayaking, 4wd trip to sand dunes for tobogganing - absolute great fun had by my wife and I Would highly recommend this activity.

Was amazing and so much fun. Got to fit so much into one day and was very action packed with an awesome, healthy lunch! The tour guides were great and was such great value for money! Highly recommend.

It was so fun! Although it would’ve been better if the weather wasn’t bad. The tour guides were very nice and approachable.

It was a really fun time an so thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
