Can you snorkel Tangalooma Wrecks?

Moreton Island is one of Australia’s great adventure islands, with epic sand dunes, turquoise waters, abundant wildlife and plenty of fun to be had on land and water! One of such legendary spots on the amazing Moreton Island is the Tangalooma Wrecks, a series of 15 vessels sunk back in ‘63 to make a break wall.

Snorkelling the Tangalooma Wrecks

Today, the Tangalooma Wrecks make for the perfect snorkel spot, with keen divers and snorkellers ducking down beneath the waters to check out the rusted ships, colourful sea species, coral and even a few sea turtles!

You can either join one of the numerous Tangalooma snorkel tours or hire your own gear and swim out there yourself. However, the latter can be quite difficult even for stronger swimmers, so we recommend jumping aboard a tour that will take you straight out to the wrecks so that you don’t have to battle those strong Moreton Island currents!

So, of course you can snorkel the Tangalooma Wrecks! They may have once been used as a break wall, but today they are very much so an awesome snorkel spot, an adventure to be added to your Moreton Island itinerary along with these other unforgettable activities…

Sand tobogganing

Moreton Island is one massive sand island, so it’s understandable that there are going to be a few epic dunes awaiting your tobogganing fancy! Climb all the way up these giant dunes, hop on your toboggan and glide all the way to the bottom – it’s an amazing Moreton Island land adventure to contrast your time out snorkelling amongst the Tangalooma Wrecks!

Dolphin Feeding

The Tangalooma Island Resort is blessed with a cheeky congregation of dolphins that come swimming up to shore every night to catch a little grub before swimming back off to sleep or whatever they do.

Luckily, you have the opportunity to feed these sea geniuses by hand! The dolphin feeding experience is free if you are staying at the resort or can be purchased as a part of a day trip package to the island, either way it’s a miraculous experience and one that you definitely won’t forget for a long time!

Head down to the sand tracks on 4WD

Moreton Island, being a sand island, is a 4WDer’s paradise. Hire yourself a 4WD and explore the epic Ocean Beach course, where you can swim, fish and explore sublime freshwater creeks…
