Day Trips to Moreton Island

Adults:  ONLY $45      Children:  ONLY $10

Don’t put your head in the sand too quick if you don’t have a 4WD, the MICAT ferry also transfers foot passengers to the island and it’s the perfect place for a play in the bay! Why brave the crowds at the local beach or sit in Sunday afternoon traffic when you have Brissie’s slice of paradise right in our backyard?! Just short of a 20 min drive from Brissie, you can be onboard the MICAT ferry kicking back with a cold beer while cruising across magical Moreton bay. We’ll have you stepping off the ferry onto the beach in around 75 minutes from leaving port. And the best bit is it’s just as easy on the way back.

So what’s the big deal about a day trip to Moreton? We’ve got crystal clear blue waters, stunning coral formations and endless fish varieties, pristine white sandy beaches and Brissie’s only shipwreck snorkelling site to boot! That’s not bad for a short ferry ride from the city! Bring your own snorkel gear and explore the amazing sealife or just kick back and relax on the white sandy beach! Don’t forget to pack your esky with cold drinks, snacks and enough tucker to get you through the day!

Got a question about a day trip to Moreton Island? We’ll try our best to answer them all for you!

Where can I park my vehicle at the terminal?

We have secure parking at the terminal at $15 per day which is arranged on the day of travel.

How much luggage can I bring?

Generally we allow you to bring on the ferry all the gear you need for a great day out on Moreton Island. If you have an excessive amount you will need to advise the team at Moreton Island Adventures as additional charges may apply.

Do you have luggage trolleys?

We do offer complimentary use of luggage trolleys at the ferry terminal to transport your gear on board the MICAT. Please note all luggage trolleys must remain on the mainland.

Can I purchase food & drinks on Moreton?

We recommend that all walk on passengers bring a packed esky with enough food and drinks for the day. If you wish to enter the Tangalooma Resort you will need to pre-book a day visitor pass prior to travel by visiting the Tangalooma website.

Where does the ferry land on Moreton?

The MICAT lands directly on the beach and drops passenger and vehicles off next to the Wrecks, on the western side of the island. The Tangalooma Resort is around a 20 minute walk south of the island directly along the beach.

What can I do on the island? Can I hire any gear?

Pristine clear waters and white sandy beaches make Moreton the ideal setting to kick back and relax. Bring a packed lunch, snorkelling gear and your swim suit for a fun day out at the beach and a famous shipwreck snorkel. Snorkelling gear and other equipment can be hired on a daily or hourly basis from Tangalooma Resort. Don’t forget you will need to arrange a day visitor pass to gain access into the resort or to hire any equipment.

Can I snorkel the wrecks unattended?

You do not require a guide to snorkel around the wrecks however we recommend that you are a confident swimmer and snorkel around 30 minutes before the high or low tide, aiming to be back on the beach 30 minutes after the high or low tide. At high and low tide the current becomes “slack” and you will have the best visibility and the least current pulling you. If you are unsure of your swimming ability we recommend you book a tour with our mates at Sunset Safaris or contact Tangalooma to book a guided snorkel experience.

Can I visit the Tangalooma Resort?

If you wish to visit the Tangalooma Resort you will need to pre-book a day visitor pass prior to travel to gain entry into the resort. Passes are subject to availability and may not be guaranteed for your day of travel. For more details or to book please visit the Tangalooma website by clicking here.
