Water activities has to be one of the most popular activities when visiting any Island. You have a couple of options here to either join one of the Tours, or walk to the wrecks yourself. The Tangalooma Island resort Wrecks aren’t directly in front of the resort itself, so sometimes taking the boat might be more convenient. However it is possible to walk this yourself in 30 mins and swim out to the wrecks to explore. The are also options to bring your own Snorkel gear or hire on the Island.

Have you ever wanted to learn to dive, or certified already? Diving the Tangalooma Wrecks is possible to organise from the Island or there are day trips running from Brisbane. This diving is also done around the wrecks and very convenient for a new Diver due to limited depth. There are over 100 species of fish and other marine life that inhabit this area including nudibranch, Sea Urchins, Eels & Wobbygong Sharks.

Segway Beach Tours

This was my first experience on a Segway and I thought being on the beach was going to make it harder. Turned out it was a lot of fun, except Matt broke his thong trying to grip (flipflops). These operate a number of times throughout the day and take you touring from the Resort all the way up the beach.

Pelican Feeding

Tangalooma Island Resort has a number of free activities on the island, Pelican Feeding is one of them. Every morning Rangers feed the Australian Pelicans and tell you more about these beautiful looking birds. Watch out for the Cormorants too (heaps of them around) and other birds that might pop in for a visit. This all happens from the Tangalooma Jetty!
