Ashleigh McConnell and myself set out to island of Tangalooma early Saturday morning from Brisbane and arrived on the beautiful sand island, sun shining and greeted by the friendly Tanga Tours Staff. The staff at tanga were friendly, insightful and keen to help us have the best experience on the Island.
We began the day with stand up paddle boarding, a activity that is a bit harder than it sounds, but the early morning clear waters provided an ideal setting. After falling in countless times we set off to see the island from 150m above the water with parasailing.
The staff were kind enough to even dunk us in the water and we rode back to shore all singing along to the radio. Snorkling the ship wrecks was picturesque and we enjoyed using the sea scooters to help us zoom around and chase fish and wobbygong sharks on the ocean floor.
The tour guides would lead us round explaining all the marine life and the history of the wrecks. We finished the day trying our luck at segwaying and then a bike ride along the beach as the sun set. We even saw some dolphins trying to keep up with us.
Before we left back to Brisbane, we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to feed the wild dolphins. This was a huge highlight and we got to learn about the dolphins that come into the shore. Exhausted from our adventures we boarded the ferry back to Brisbane. Tangalooma was a easy day trip, and felt like a hidden paradise. A beautiful location with countless activities, Ashleigh and I hope to be back soon.
