Did #rivertobay Moreton Bay: Best of Moreton Bay 3 Island Day Tour which includes snorkelling Tangalooma Wrecks Moreton Island, lunch Little Ship club Dunwich North Stradbroke & walk on St Helena island. Was fun, even though weather wasn't great & the water was rough at times. The snorkelling was still good with lots of colourful fish, a turtle & stingray.Although the "big men" who were freaking out at first, made it a little disorganised. Lol. Lunch was a nice pub type lunch with a koala & kangaroo in the nearby cemetery. The walk around the edge of St Helena island was interesting. Saw a Shovel nosed ray from the pier, a wallaby & interesting flora, although it was a little disappointing that you can't get closer to the penal colony stockade, as access is restricted. However, would highly recommend this tour!

Amazing day and well worth it! However I would recommend going the snorkelling guided tour straight away. The weather whilst sunshine was not suitable with the wind and current to independently get out and back safely with the kids(10 &13) so we paid on the day to upgrade.

Great way to see Moreton Bay. Well planned, lots of time on the water, smooth ride. Lunch tasty with a great view. Interesting visit to St Helena Island - all in all a great day out.

It was great day kayaking and snorkelling There were plenty of activities and it was great to use the resort pool as well Great value

Awesome activity! The tracks are well designed for all levels of experience. Highly recommend
