I surprised my girlfriend with a day trip to Tangalooma. We had the time of our lives. The Dolphin wild staff were friendly and professional. We had such a great time abord the supercat! The snorkelling tour was our favourite part of the trip. It was amazing! My girlfriend and I would like to personally thank and congratulate the Dolphin Wild staff for their excellent service! Would recommend to anyone to give it a go!

What a great family outing! If you're looking for something to do with your kids in the great outdoors, this is definitely recommendable. My kids of 6 of 9 years said this was the best experience of their entire Easter Holiday.

We started with boom netting (whole family on the nets) and then snorkelling around the wrecks. My youngest one just wanted to take a splash around the wrecks and wasn't up for the snorkelling and the lovely crew had the rubber duck around for 10min. This allowed mum to do snorkelling, little one to do some splashing alongside mum and then we got picked up and driven back to the boat while dad and the older one snorkelled the wrecks.

Then we got dropped off at the island and the kids climbed the dunes and went for a swim. We finished the afternoon off with lovely sightseeing of dolphins, dugongs and turtles. During our trip the kids were welcomed to steer the ship any time they wanted and they loved chatting to captain Simon!

Lisa, you and the crew did great! We'll definitely be back for more!

We had the most amazing day with Dolphin Wild Island Cruise. We went with three adults and two teenagers. The guided snorkelling through the wrecks was fantastic and great for all ages , with children able to hold onto a ring if not strong swimmers. We loved boom netting off the back of the boat - a unique experience.
We had time to spend on the island too and the water was crystal clear ,so great for a swim.
We were lucky enough to see dolphins , dugongs, sea eagles and turtles.

The boat was spacious and clean with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The food was basic but good and nice and fresh with vege options too. The boat also has a licensed bar and snacks for sale.

The staff were amazing ! So friendly. My kids even had the opportunity to visit the captain and have a turn steering the boat.

We had such an amazing day. I'd definitely recommend the trip. We will be back !

We had an awesome time with Dolphin Wild. They really looked after us, especially when my 5 year old got a bit tired swimming. The food was fresh basic fare, with options to buy soft drinks or alcohol.

The snorkeling was amazing - I have been to Moreton island a few times but never seen it like this. We saw dolphins, dugongs, heaps of colorful fish, and a few turtles.

Recommend doing this with Dolphin Wild for a great day out!
