Port Douglas: Low Isles Snorkel Tour

1. Port Douglas: Low Isles Snorkel Tour

Join a snorkelling experience in the water around a beautiful, secluded island. Enjoy some time aboard a comfortable and spacious vessel as you travel to the Low Isles with only 23 guests. Relax with plenty of space onboard during the journey and enjoy a light refreshment as you spot the Low Isles in the distance. Spend a few hours snorkelling and exploring a picturesque coral bay. Snorkel in the calm lagoon or view the reef from the glass bottom boat. The crew will provide tours for guests to learn and appreciate the incredible Great Barrier Reef. Access to the reef is very easy, either from the back of the vessel or from the beach as the reef hugs close to the island. Explore the coral reef and its inhabitants without the crowds. Walk through the sandy paths and through the vegetation. See first hand the historical lighthouse, the lighthouse keeper's home and the Weather Station where local weather data is collected.

Kira was so helpful as I am a bit scared in deep water. She made sure I was ok throughout the time we were snorkelling. On return to port Douglas my daughter was very sea sick and both Kira and Josephine were so kind and couldn’t do enough to help her. Jake was a really lovely guy too. Overall a lovely day was had with plenty of good food, drink and lovely people to enjoy the day with.

Crew was awesome and they brought the perfect conditions with them. Everything about this afternoon with my partner was on point!!
