      Moreton Island
      Stop: 6 hours - Admission excluded
      In the morning, your 4WD coach picks you up from the Gold Coast or Brisbane, then travels to the ferry to Moreton Island. During the 75-minute ferry ride across Moreton Bay, take in views from the deck or cabin, keep an eye out for dolphins and other marine life. When you reach the island, your 4WD-vehicle drives along the sand to the Tangalooma Wrecks where you have several options for beachside fun. Follow your guide on a snorkeling tour of the famous shipwrecks; the 15 vessels were purposely sunk here to create a breakwall. This resulting reef is home to colorful corals, tropical fish, trevally, yellowtail, wobbegong, kingfish and more. If snorkeling doesn’t appeal to you, use the provided transparent bodyboards to paddle in search of turtles, reef fish, coral and other critters, or simply relax on the white-sand beach. After the snorkel tour, your guide serves a picnic lunch before leading a tour on transparent kayaks to explore the Tangalooma Wrecks. Stay dry as you view an amazing array of fish right below your kayak. (Please note that a 4WD tour around the island will replace the snorkeling and kayaking if conditions are unfavorable). Next, hang on tight as your driver takes your 4WD on rough inland tracks to tall sand dunes that are ideal for sandboarding, a fun, high-adrenaline activity comparable to tobogganing. It is possible to reach speeds of up to 30 mphr (50 kph) as you zip down the dunes. After sandboarding, return to the coast and enjoy a swim at Tangalooma Beach (if time allows). Then catch the ferry back to the mainland and reach Brisbane or the Gold Coast in the evening.

      A great tour for someone who love water activities and adventure
      This tour was full of thrilling activities starting with snorkeling, then sand boarding, overnight camping, swimming in blue lagoon and champagne pools. Our guide (I think his is called Ret) organised the trip and showed us stories of Indigenous resident of Moreton Island and some bush tuckers on the island.

      A great day on Moreton
      I am glad to have chosen this company.  +  It was a little more expensive than others but I wanted to have both snorkeling and kayak activities included in the day and most companies offer one or the other, whereas SS garanties both. The staff was professional, knowledgeable and friendly, the timing perfectly managed and the equipment very good (transparent kayaks, 4WD bus, jetski to take us to/back from the wrecks faster, snorkels). Very good service and value.-I would advise to improve the lunch which was very basic. Why not to offer better options prepared/purchased ahead. As a vegetarian, I had no protein but only vegetables to put in my wrap. I would also be glad to have some biscuits or something sweet instead of just fruits. But I am still glad the food was fresh and healthy(vegetables and fruits). Thank you SS for this beautiful day!

      Best way to do Moreton
      Crazy not to go!!! Most amazing 2 days on Moreton with our guide Chris. Could not believe the inclusions with the desert sand boarding and night time Kayaking with the led lights being the highlight. Meals included were amazing and never did we feel hungry or unsure of the days plan. Very happy with the tour and would go again for sure. Thank you again Chris and the gang for a memorable long weekend.

      3 Day Great Barrier Reef and Lady Musgrave Tour
      This was my first time visiting Australia and the Great Barrier Reef with my family. Our tour guide, Harry was fun and showed us some great sites around the area. The tour was made for a larger number, but I was surprised with a smaller tour group which made it easier to get to know each other and travel from place to place. The description of the tour is not as detailed which worried me a little about the day to day itinerary, but when I was on the tour, everything was planned out nicely, the food was great and the resort we stayed at was lovely, (Kelly's Beach Resort). The day we spent on the Great Barrier Reef was beautiful and breath taking, especially the snorkeling! We also had the opportunity to learn paddle boarding and surfing as well! Don't worry if you can't swim, the instructors will take great care of you. I highly recommend this tour and hopefully you can get a great guid like Harry.

      Get Wrecked! Morten Island Day Tour
      From the moment Chris greeted us at the ferry dock for our trip out to Morten Island, we knew this tour group was going to be great. The staff was laid back and friendly and really great at setting expectations for the day early and keeping us informed. The ride over was chill and the ferry has some great nosh if you had to skip breakfast for the early departure. Once on the island, everything is timed so well. We never felt like we wasted our time yet never feeling rushed. I wish I could remember the names of all the staff because they were freaking phenomenal. Approachable, funny, considerate, and serious about safety. Some tours (most cruise excursions, imo) have guides that don't cover enough about how to be safe in activities and someone ends up getting injured and ruining it for the rest of the group. Some of these activities can be dangerous for weak swimmers or people not used to heat, they made sure there was ample equipment, help, and instructions to stay safe and have a great time. I really appreciated that. This tour was action packed and casual and had all the Australian hospitality I could ask for. Would definitely do this again! Overall tips: - Sand boarding is HOT yet fun. Ask your guide on the ferry if you can be in the first group to go out. It was nice to end in the water and start of dry. Wear your sandals or footwear in the sand unless you have feet made of stone. The dunes are deceiving and the walk up them and back can be trying as you're in soft sand and walking up steep angles. I did not drink enough water before going out. Had a blast sliding down the dunes. Be prepared to eat sand, it's inevitable. - Bring lots of sunblock and even more water. And change of clothes. - Facilities are limited, you're basically at a beach campground. There are showers and hybrid toilets but don't expect air conditioning (except on the 4x4 bus) or luxury places to relax and eat. You'll be sitting on sand most of the day. - Bring a go pro or phone protector for pictures. I was dumb and didn't pack my go pro and between all the sand and water activities, I didn't get to take as many pictures as I wanted because of the environments the activities were in. (Still brushing sound out of crevices in my phone. Lol) - Be prepared for physical activities. You're not driven to the top of the dunes or in a fake reef area. Those with physical limitations should be realistic when booking or consider skipping activities. Thanks Chris and the rest of the tour staff for one for the memory books. Can't wait to bring more friends next time I visit Brisbane.

      Amazing guide on a beautiful island
      Lee was a great informative guide allowing us to learn a lot of history and taking us to some beautiful viewpoints and see lovely views and beaches. The food for lunch was plentiful and lovely with a selection of salads.

      Spectacular journey
      The island cannot be better explored than a 4WD. Driving on the beach up to the lighthouse, then thru the middle road to three more beaches. Although this is not the season to watch whales but the landscape alone is worth the trip. The trip is not demanding even for a retired couple in the 70s like ourselves. Chris is well prepared, lunch in the tent, ample water supply during the day.

      Stunning scenery, lovely guides & fun packed tour
      Went to my first Moreton Island trip with a bunch of friends and left with so much love and memories. The sand Island is near pristine with crystal clear water and beautiful native trees. We had a chill first day on a 4WD around the island, very aussie experience, driven by our funny tour guide Grant who so happen to be an amazing cook as well! Gotta say meals prepared throughout the trip were surprisingly good. The bunk we stayed at was just a short walk to the beach, watching the sunset and stargazing on the beach was magical. Second day was the fun stuff, sandboarding (so blown away by the vast dessert!), snorkelling among fishes and kayaking around the shipwrecks. All of us agreed that this trip was remarkable. Shoutout to our super lovely guides Grant & Natasha for taking great care of us and definitely made this trip much more enjoyable & memorable, Thank you! I truely hope anyone visiting the island would continue to protect this gem, keep it clean with care & love.

      Our trip and tour guides are super duper awesome!
      Had a two day one night trip to Moreton Bay with my group of friends from Singapore. The trip was amazing and wonderful especially having two friendly and lovely tour guides (Grant and Natasha) to guide us around!! My friends and I felt that this is a best experience ever and the trip is super worth it :) Side note: The lunch and dinner cooked by Grant was so gooooood!! I strongly recommended this 2d1n trip to Moreton island :)

      Wonderful island, excellent tour guide!
      We indulged in a wonderful Google daytime at Moreton Island with an excellent tour guide, Chris! The scenic view on the island is fantastic and activities are amazing! It is unforgettable to have lunch at Cape Moreton Lighthouse. To oversee the coastline from Cape Moreton Lighthouse makes me relaxed. Chris is the best tour guide I have ever met. he took care of every participant and was willing to go out of his way to help everyone. He is so knowledgeable so I learn more. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and highly recommend it. We felt it was well worth the money we paid!

    The island is beautiful and it's really worth to visit, however the company Sunset Safari, they are expensive, they rush everyone in every activity. The Snorkelling was really fast, I bought a 7:45 start, they sent an email later the night before saying we would be leaving at 9:15 and we left the port at 10:45, arriving on the island almost 12:00 to do 3 activities. The "sandboard" is a joke, they literally give you a piece of timber board so you can eat sand while you ride down the dune. The Staff was friendly and nice however it's way too expensive for the experience you have.

    The two-day trip to Moreton Island with Sunset Safaris was fantastic. The moment you arrive on the Island you are welcomed by breath taking views of crystal clear water and pure white sand.

    When we arrived on the Island the 4WD bus picked us up. I was in awe as we drove along the beach and through the sandy roads. Extremely grateful that infrastructure hadn’t crept in to this part of the Island. Our first stop was sand boarding in The Desert. Regardless of our age, this activity definitely awakens the inner child in all of us.

    We were then taken to Blue Lagoon for a quick swim and a nice lunch. People in our tour had special dietary requirements, which Sunset Safaris welcomely catered for.

    Other activities on this trip included snorkelling around the shipwreck, transparent day and night kayaking (weather permitting) and a lighthouse tour. We even spotted a few whales while we travelled around the Island.

    For anyone who is like me, loves the ocean and nature, but is reluctant to go camping because the thought of not having a toilet around scares you. I get it, it’s the one luxury you don’t want to let go of. Well, you will be pleased to know they have decent toilets that a managed by National Parks Rangers not far from the campgrounds.

    Most importantly, this trip would not have been as memorable if it wasn’t for our brilliant tour guides, Rhett and Bones. Not only are they filled with abundant knowledge of every detail of the Island they can cook, sing, play the guitar and teach you a thing or two about the galaxy. The food and entertainment were amazing. Additionally, they both have brilliant photography skills. Rhett set up photos for us to take and taught us a few skills along the way. I have never come back from a holiday with such great photos. Even my friends were amazed that I actually took some decent photos. Trust me, that’s saying a lot. Both Rhett and Bones really went above and beyond their requirements to deliver genuine professional customer service.

    Thanks Sunset Safaris, thanks Rhett and Bones you truly made our weekend away one we will remember forever. I would definitely do another Sunset Safari tour without any hesitation.

    This was honestly a beautiful experience. All the activities were super fun- and seemed to go for just the right amount of time! The food was delish and the tour guides were great!

    The only downfall was the communication. I tried to call to confirm my booking before the day and the phone call didn't get answered/I didn't get a call back. Then on the day the bus driver was late in the morning (only by 20mins) which would've been fine if there was a text message or some way of letting people know as the booking confirmation said the bus would be leaving at a sharp time. I spoke to a security person at the bus stop who says 'he arrives when he arrives'. There were a couple of people from the tour going from terminal to terminal looking for the bus but couldn't find it. Then when we got off the boat- they'd spoken about what was going to happen but they just went missing for a couple of minutes while we waited for them. Honestly still a great experience- if they had've communicated a little better it would've been 5 stars for sure!

    Also, you could tell that they were definitely taking into consideration other reviews as they had implemented nearly everything from any feedback I had read which I really appreciate in a company. So on the day, they only took out the kayaks that were in the best condition to see the fish.

    Thanks for a great day!

    Overall a nice day however the water was so cold at the wrecks no one could really enjoy them. If you want to run this tour in winter you need to get proper wetsuits, the 3ml ones aren't thick enough. Most of the customers couldn't complete the snorkeling and had to come back on the jetski and the staff who had to stay in the water were obviously struggling with the cold. Would not recommend this trip in cool months until the company gets proper wetsuits

    The experience definitely had some learning curves if we were to ever suggest going for others. We wished we’d factored in the travel it takes, our starting pick up location being the Gold Coast at 5:20 in the morning to meet. The travel before and after is excessively long and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone unless staying closer to the jetty point. We were unfortunate enough to encounter on the island numerous people becoming bogged in their vehicles which slowed down and actually ate into our experience time. The first activity being sand boarding didn’t faze us as it wasn’t particularly something we cared to do at all but the facilitators were having to rush us to do the first activity to give everyone a go. It wasn’t until we were on our way for lunch that we became stationary for 40 minutes whilst holiday goers (one being my partner) volunteered out of the goodness of their hearts to help push the cars to safety so we could pass. This, obviously couldn’t be helped but again our kayaking and snorkelling experience was rushed and shortened. For the amount of money you pay to get to see Moreton island it was really a shame and I would rather organise the travel to and from island solo rather than through a company. We would’ve then felt like we had the opportunity to enjoy the snorkelling and kayaking experience. But again it was rushed and we barely had time at all once you counter in donning all the gear too. Lunch was very mundane too. The website specified sandwich lunch but we were given wraps. I would’ve loved to have two or more but lunch was shortened so we could get to the last two activities. By the time we left the island we were extremely hungry even once buying a few items back on ferry. The snorkelling and kayaking was amazing we just didn’t get enough time to enjoy and really take it in. We are strong swimmers and wanted to slightly venture whilst snorkelling but the facilitator would keep pulling us back to group (understandable) given it is a group experience but we lost a few opportunities to see more. We didn’t even get time to just simply relax on the beach and enjoy the view. As soon as kayaking was done we were herded back to the bus quickly. Overall we enjoyed it. But we wouldn’t do it in this manner nor recommend it to others to ensure you get the time wanted where you want and what you want to do whilst on the island.

    Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your recent experience on Moreton Island. We appreciate your honesty, and we'd like to address the concerns you've raised: 1. Early Morning Pickup: We understand that the early morning pickup from the Gold Coast may have been less than ideal. The commute from the Gold Coast to Brisbane can indeed take a while, and the early start was necessary to ensure we could make the most of our day on the island. In the future, we recommend staying in Brisbane if you wish to have a shorter travel time to the jetty point. 2. Traffic and Bogging: Unfortunately, traffic and bogged vehicles situations are beyond our control, and they can occur, especially during peak holiday seasons when the island receives a higher number of visitors. We appreciate your understanding in this matter. 3. Lunch: We understand that the DIY wrapped lunch was not to your liking. Please note that the time constraints were a factor in the lunch experience, and we appreciate your understanding. 4. Activity Rush: We understand that some of the activities felt rushed due to the unexpected delays earlier in the day. Our tour guides strive to ensure that everyone gets a chance to participate in all planned activities, which sometimes requires us to manage time constraints. We appreciate your feedback, as it helps us make improvements and provide better experiences for our customers. Should you decide to visit us again in the future, we recommend planning your visit outside of public and school holidays. This can lead to a less crowded experience and a more relaxed atmosphere, allowing you to enjoy the island to its fullest. Thank you for your feedback again.

    The clear kayaks were cool, food was pretty good, that’s all that’s awesome though, snorkelling was as good as it would’ve been if you had of gone without the tour, the equipment was well run down. Wet suits were ripping in places. Snorkels were one size fits all kind so can be painful in places. The guides barely spoke or gave info on things to look at. The bus to the sand dunes broke down several times and overheard it had no reverse gear makes me question the safety then one bus backed into another then the guides were ripping into each other. Not very professional. I definitely do not think it is worth the money you spend to do this tour I don’t recommend

    I recently went on the 2 day Moreton island tour with Sunset Safaris which was a mix of the scenic and get wrecked day tour - and it was amazing!! Wein and Josh our tour guides were warm and welcoming and made sure we enjoyed the trip. The food was delicious and all you need after the activities planned- we did snorkeling, sand boarding, cruising around the island in 4WD, kayaking and saw whales, dolphins, sea turtles, different kind of birds and vegetations and lots of fishes. The highlight of the trip was the night kayaking, a unique experience that I highly recommend - it has a thrill of its own. We had sea turtles And fishes swimming just below the kayaks and the coral at night was too good!!!

    The night kayaking is definitely the highlight of the tour! It seemed like you had seen all types of marine life on tour, how lucky! Come back to visit us again someday!

    Overall it was a good day and we enjoyed ourselves once we gotten to the island, but the lack of organisation at the beginning let the overall trip down, for many its a new experience and for the money paid for a guided tour, more guidance is required.
    Our Gold Coast pick up time should have been 5:45am but we were notified few days before our pick up time had changed to 7:15am due to a special ferry.
    In the end we didn’t need to leave at 7:15 either as they didn’t have any Brisbane pick ups and ended up arriving at the ferry too early and had a lot of waiting around.
    The ferry itself was pleasant, 90 minutes with a cafe and nice ocean views.
    When you arrive at Morton Island again no guidance, the transport driver that dropped you to the ferry doesn’t get on the ferry with you so you don’t have the driver giving directions, there is meant to be someone that meets you there but no one met us and we had no idea where to go, if it wasn’t for another couple who had done it before and shown everyone the way to the set up we would’ve been standing aimlessly for a while.
    Your time on Morton island should be 6 hours we got just under 5 hours by the time we got off the ferry and got to the set up - not particularly good considering its advertised 6 hours on the island.
    There are 2 bus loads and about 4 band groups so you go in turns on each activity.
    But because of the late arrival and less time it’s very rushed. You don’t get much chance to take it in and relax a little.
    Now moving on from the bad and onto the good of the tour.
    The food lunch provided was a create your own wrap bar, with crisps and muffins, very tasty I like the touch you can make it yourself especially for the kids and fussy eaters. There was a water tank but it’s in direct heat and went warm quick.
    Sand boarding was great, you get 2 slides each which is just the right amount because the hill back up is tiring haha, the drive to and from the dunes is also fantastic, it’s a very bumpy ride, you literally bounce of our your chair, it’s a great laugh.
    Kayaking was great and love the transparent boats you can see so much below you.
    Snorkelling was my favourite, the fish are absolutely amazing around the shipwreck and they come so close, you definitely need to take your go pro to capture all the beautiful fish.
    Overall the activities were amazing and such great experiences, just wish it was a bit more organised.

    The Get Wrecked Day Tour experience was so much fun and the highlight of our Brisbane trip. Travelling to and from Moreton Island included a comfortable air-conditioned coach and ferry with a small cafe on board. We had a great time chatting with other passengers. When we arrived we had lunch at the camp including a DIY wrap and gluten-free options. We were lucky to start with sandboarding and the 4WD ride there was bumpy but fun. Then, we kayaked and it was amazing to feed and see the fish all around us. We then finished and snorkelled at the wrecks. It was incredible getting close to so many beautiful fish! Overall, the guides were always friendly and helpful every step of the way and we highly recommend this experience!
