On the Bay Animal Encounters

Wildlife Family Fun Boating & Fishing

Escape the city for a day of Moreton Bay wildlife spotting basking in the sun and sea spray.

Moreton Bay Marine Park is one of the largest and most unique estuarine bays in Australia, home to a variety of both tropical and temperate Moreton Bay marine animals such as turtles, wobbegong sharks, stingrays, manta ray, gropers, tropical and reef fish, bottlenose dolphins, dugongs, and whales (during humpback migration season).

Pumicestone Passage, the channel which separates Bribie Island from the mainland, is part of the marine park and acts as a rich habitat for a diversity of bird and marine life.

The passage and the bay offer great opportunities for marine life spotting.

Great start to our trip today... 8 Dolphins playing with us on the front of the boat. Even a little baby... nawhhh... #visitmoretonbayregion #thisisBrisbane #seeaustralia #aussienews
