What people are saying about Moreton Bay

From flinging ourselves down a sand dune with Dan after an exciting 4 x 4 bus ride to the desert to refuelling with a wonderful wrap and then kayaking in a clear kayak, watching them all swim under us and hand feeding them and finally ending our day with JetSki tow to snorkelling amongst the tangalooma wrecks - what a bloody good experience. All of the hosts were amazing, they supply everything you could possibly need and make one incredibly amazing day out. My British boyfriend had a whole day of firsts and even as an Aussie who grew up at the beach, I was beyond impressed.

Well organised. My family enjoyed each experience without feeling rushed on to the next one. Lunch was fresh and you could fill your own wraps. Staff were friendly, cheerful and fun. Would definitely recommend the trip.

Eclectic interesting activities. First rate service due to an attentive and engaging crew and an impressive boat.

Nice staff and great experience doing snorkeling kayak and surfing in the desert! Recommend

Worth the money, thank you for the wonderful experience we had a great time
