We had a wonderful day out with the family on the Dolphin Wild cruise. There was something for everyone on our relaxing, exciting, fun and educational trip. The staff were marvelous and couldn't do enough to make sure everyone had fun in a safe way. Thanks to the crew for a special day.

My girlfriend and I had a lovely day out with Dolphin wild and would recommend it to anyone wanting to experience Tangalooma/ Moreton island as day trip. We saw dugongs, dolphins and turtles as well as a plethora of fish while snorkeling the wrecks. The boom netting was an interesting experience, slightly awkward but enjoyable (¿). The day we were...

We really enjoyed the friendly crew, fun activities and valuable marine knowledge of Alan, the Captain. Our son could also steer the ship and look for Dolphins (we didn´t shipwreck suprisingly). Snorkelling was wonderful with lots of colorful fish. We appreciated also the absence of loud music on board. Very nice day indeed! Thank you Lisa, Simone and Alan!

We've just come off the boat and are on an absolute high from the day. We thoroughly enjoyed everything, from the friendly staff; sightseeing, lunch, snorkelling, boom netting and relaxing on the beach. The boat is really comfy and lots of places to take in the scenery. The staff were fun and were really accommodating of people's requests and kids.... More

Yesterday was another fantastic day on Dolphin Wild. Was raining in Brisbane but a comfortable trip across the bay to Moreton on Super Cat and it was a perfect day on the island. The staff Lisa and the two captains Alan and Simon are very friendly and helpful. People from kids to grannies were having fun on the Boom Nets,... More

We went on this tour and it was very boring. Ride over takes 45minutes. Once you get near the island they start the Boom netting... this took about 2 hours to get through everyone so it was ALOT of waiting around on the boat (only 8 go at a time). Snorkelling for about 40mins. You can't go snorkelling in the... More

Hi Elicia, we’re sorry you and Tom found the activities we offer on our cruise “boring” – boom netting, snorkelling & fishfeeding the Tangalooma Wrecks, swim & beach time on Moreton Island and Eco tour siting dolphins, dugongs and turtles. The boom netting did take little longer than usual as the staff sited dolphins and kindly pulled the net back... More

This cruise lived up to all our expectations and more. The crew were knowledgeable, friendly & most accommodating. We saw dolphins, dugong, turtles, fish & coral, had fun on the boom net as well as a relaxing swim at the quiet beach. Snorkeling was cool & refreshing - it was fascinating to see all the fish swimming around the wrecks.... More

This was a fantastic trip on the water! Beautiful day and calm seas. Boom netting was a great experience and we look forward to doing it again. Snorkeling around the wrecks was fantastic and we got some wonderful photos when they were feeding the fish. Lunch provided on board then free swim to the beach or they took you in... More

From the first safety briefing through to the last goodbye the team aboard Dolphin Wild Cruises were brilliant. Promptly leaving at 8.30am (as advertised) our host Lisa provided a safety briefing that was both detailed and charmingly funny, gently ribbing her colleagues aboard. A few minutes later and we were relaxing on deck watching the main land disappear as we... More
