Point O’Halloran to Tangalooma

Our first stop on this cruise was trusty Tangalooma. Trusty because you are guaranteed clear water, awesome snorkelling and a more often than not a little bit roly at anchor. Sometimes this roll is just from the tankers that go past but sometimes the roll is from the swell and wind. We got both!

Now Tangalooma is definitely one of our favourite spots in Moreton Bay. We anchor between the wrecks and the beach. The current does run strong through there and there are depths of 10 metres. We have anchored both north and south of the wrecks before but those spots are super roly.
