The Moreton Island Sand and Sea tour starts with a luxury cruise across beautiful Moreton Bay to Moreton Island. Travelling along Middle Road, you pass through thick eucalypt forest on your way to The Desert, the home of Sand Boarding. Sand boarding and tobogganing is awesome fun, high speed and high adrenaline. After a fresh picnic lunch, prepared by your tour guide, they take you on a guided snorkel around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks.
