Good Day Tour Operator?

Hi everyone

can you recommend a good and reliable day tour operator in Brisbane as we hope to go on a 1-day Dolphin Feeding Cruise Trip (with transfers to and fro Hotel) to Tangalooma.

We'll be putting up at the OAKS on FELIX. If we book the Dolphin Feeding Cruise directly with the Tangalooma Island Resort

tangalooma.com/info/… , we need to make our own way to Holt St Wharf, Holt Street Wharf, Pinkenba, Brisbane . Can someone advise us what's the best way to get there from OAKS? How long will the journey take?

Thanks :)

If you look on the Tangalooma site they do have some transfers from the transit centre at Roma Street, and other points in the city.

look at question 4 and the answer re transfers on their site tangalooma.com/info/…4 I suggest you contact them for more info.

If the transfer is not a convenient time, I suggest getting a taxi as the wharf on the river at Eagle Farm where they depart is not an area for public transport. If there is more than 4 of you request a maxi taxi when booking.

Sure you'll have a wonderful time there.

thanks lifetraveller for your reply.

We're husband and wife with a 2.5yr old toddler. This cruise is solely for our daughter to feed the dolphins :) Do you know how much a cab trip will cost from OAKs on Felix to the wharf?

There isn't a form on their website for us to book our transfer to the wharf. I think we have to make a long distance call?

hi lifetraveller

I've tried using the fare calculator to estimate the taxifare from Brisbane International Airport to OAKS on FELIX/OAKS FESTIVAL TOWERS (Charlotte St) but it couldn't generate cos the pick-up address is incorrect. Can you help? We're arriving past midnight around 1am, will there be additional surcharges?
