INTERESTING! Located in the Moreton Bay Marine Park, Peel Island’s indigenous name Teerk Roo Ra, means “the place of many shells.” It was used as a quarantine station in the mid-19th century before passengers could move on to North Stradbroke Island.

The island once served as a leper colony. While access to the northern part of the island is restricted in an effort to preserve the historic structures, you can catch a glimpse of a shipwreck off the island where The Platypus was sunk in 1926 to form a breakwater for the jetty. This partially submerged shipwreck is also home to a rich marine life.

We will sail through Moreton Bay and visit Horseshoe Bay at Peel Island.

Splash around in the clear-blue waters, up your stand-up paddle boarding skills, indulge in fun beach games, relax on the aqua mat, and don’t miss out on the coolest activity on the itinerary -boom netting!


What is boom netting? This is a fun ocean spa experience where you ride the waves safely on the edges of our “boom net” (a large net attached to the back of our boat).

What else can you see on the Moreton Bay cruise?

Dolphins! The two beautiful species of dolphins found here -Indo-pacific bottlenose dolphins and Australian humpback dolphins -are an integral part of Moreton Bay’s abundant marine life.  You may also spot dugongs and sea turtles.
