Whale Watching Day Cruise & Sea To Sky Heli Ride

Just a stone’s throw away from Brisbane, Moreton Island is a nature and adventure lover’s paradise, and this premium package captures it all. Combine the classic Moreton Island whale watching experience with an exhilarating helicopter ride, dolphin viewing and a sunset cocktail experience – all packed into a simple day trip from Brisbane!

Your day of exploration begins with a scenic boat transfer from Brisbane to the Tangalooma Island Resort. After a brief stopover, join the 3-hour whale watching cruise to spot the migrating Humpback Whales in their natural habitat. 

Next up, a 12-minute scenic helicopter ride to enjoy a bird’s-eye-view of the island! Soar over the island’s eastern beaches via Mt. Tempest and Blue Lagoon, before landing back over the iconic Tangalooma Wrecks.

But the fun is far from over! Spend the rest of your day exploring the island with your general access to resort facilities, day lounge, and Eco Ranger shows. End the evening in style over a cocktail and get ready to watch the dolphins from the jetty (weather and attendance permitting). Lunch and light refreshments are included in your tour.

This Moreton Island whale watching and helicopter tour should be on everyone’s bucket list – there’s no better way to explore this island paradise. Book now!
