"Skin Diving at Moreton Island" General Tip by GrahamBowden

General, Brisbane: 55 reviews and 74 photos


Why not catch a fast ferry to Moreton Island. It's just 35 kilometres across the bay from Brisbane. Here you'll find the Tangalooma Wild Dolphin Resort. If you can stay the night you can hand feed the dolphins in the evening.
There's also diving available on the Tangalooma artificial reef. It's not Barrier Reef quality but there's plenty of fish to see plus a small amount of coral and it's only 30 metres off the beach with very shallow water depths. Most of the wrecks making up the reef are exposed even at high water.
If you're very, very lucky you may get to see and hand feed a wild turtle like the one in the photo.
The Moreton Venture Ph: 3895 1000 and the Tangalooma Flyer Ph: 3268 6333 run to Tangalooma. The Moreton Venture is a vehicle ferry which leaves from Lytton 6 days a week and also travels to Reeders Point, while the Tangalooma Flyer leaves daily from Holt Street, Pinkenba.
