Whale Watching Cruise

Only Tangalooma Island Resort offers you Brisbane's closest whale watching cruise, plus the opportunity to enjoy island life for the day, and night if you stay over. Our vessel is a smooth sailing, comfortable catamaran. And our island is alive with fun things to do, from land and water sports to just lazing around on the beach.

Students will gain a new understanding of the annual Humpback Whale migrations past Moreton Island.
