Whale Watching & Tangalooma Island Resort Day Cruise

Leave the hustle and bustle of Brisbane for a thrilling day at Tangalooma Island Resort on Moreton Island. Join the Tangalooma whale watching cruise and come face-to-face with the migrating Humpback Whales along the Moreton Bay Marine Park, before returning to the resort for island fun!

Departing directly from Brisbane River, you’ll cruise on a luxury catamaran across Moreton Bay to Tangalooma Island Resort. Your whale watching cruise to the northern tip of the island is accompanied by passionate Eco Rangers, who’ll share fascinating insights into the whales. Spot the whales breach and frolic on these pristine waterways!

Spend your day your way! Being the only whale watching cruise with a stopover at Moreton Island, you’ll enjoy full access to resort facilities including two swimming pools, restaurants and bars. Plus, you’ll get a general access pass to enjoy the Eco Ranger shows at the Eco Centre – a great opportunity to learn more about the island’s marine life including dolphins and turtles. 

The Tangalooma whale watching tour also includes a light pre-packed lunch and refreshments. Operating daily from June through mid-October, you can pick a convenient day and book with ease! Don’t miss out!
