This is one seriously epic Best Life 'Back-Pocket' Adventure in more ways than one - and we can't wait to take you with us.
The stunning beauty and relatively undiscovered wilderness of Moreton Bay and her islands are best explored by water, far from the crowded hot-spots.
Our Moreton Bay Wilderness expedition takes you on a kayaking adventure to the most remote parts of the islands to explore hidden channels and sand dunes, watch the mystical marine life up close, and camp under a carpet of stars.
We end our adventure at Tangalooma before catching the ferry back to the mainland.
This will be a true Best Life Adventure for the mind, body and soul.
Previous kayaking experience isn't necessary. You just need an adventurous mind and a moderate level of upper body fitness. We'll provide you with full training and safety gear on Day One.

Kayak from Cleveland to North Stradbroke, via Peel Island
It's time to leave the madness of the mainland behind, and head out into the vastness of Moreton Bay for a few days of digital disconnection and physical adventure.
Our expedition departs from either Victoria Point or Cleveland (weather dependant) where we issue the kayaks, safety gear, and sumptuous food parcels, before departing in a combination of single and double kayaks for an easy few hours on the water, paddling east towards heritage-listed Peel Island, a former quarantine station for the colony of Brisbane.
We have lunch here before departing across the channel towards our destination for the night, North Stradbroke Island.
Dugongs, turtles, and dolphins frequent the waters and the island itself is known for its abundant bird and animal life largely undisturbed by pollution, development and nosey humans.
Our overnight accommodation is in cabins at Amity Point on North Stradbroke Island.
The Channel Crossing - Straddie to Moreton
Day Two of our expedition is a big one - the paddle from North Stradbroke to Moreton Island across South Passage. Using the slack tide we carefully navigate our way around the sandbanks and network of channels that have left many an unwary sailor high and dry.
Once we're safely across, our destination for an early lunch is Kooringal. We paddle north and find a campsite on the beach at the foot of the towering sandhills that look west across to the Glasshouse Mountains and Brisbane.
This is our night of true wilderness underneath a starry summer sky.
Overnight accommodation in tents on Moreton Island
Paddle West Moreton to Tangalooma
After two days at sea, our paddle along the western shore of Moreton Island is our last of true solitude, with our destination, the bustling resort of Tangalooma.
Warm showers, fresh water on tap and a hearty meal are your rewards for completing an adventure that very few people from South East Queensland have even considered.
We catch the ferry back to the mainland where your Best Life Adventure ends at the Tangalooma ferry terminal - Holt Street, Pinkenba.
