Full description

Embark on an afternoon departure on a luxury catamaran. Upon arrival, delight in freshly-brewed Tropical North Queensland tea or Jaques coffee with a light lunch. Take off for a leisurely 15-kilometer journey to the Low Isles. After some slow and smooth cruising, moor in the sheltered blue lagoon for 3 hours. The crew will set you up with complimentary snorkeling equipment and optical masks (and seasonal lycra snorkeling suits or wetsuits and flotation devices if required). Relax on the island, join the guided snorkel tour lead by a marine naturalist, take a trip on the glass-bottom boat and join the guided heritage walk. The marine biologist will provide in-depth information about the reef and its colorful inhabitants. Cure your curiosity - there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Afterward, enjoy afternoon tea and coffee with fresh homemade scones and a fruit platter. Then, enjoy a delicious selection of canapés with a glass of wine, beer, or soft drink in hand as you admire the sunset over the Coral Sea. The spectacular sunset sail back to port will showcase beautiful views of the Daintree mountains. End the tour back at the Marina at 6:30 PM and continue your evening in beautiful Port Douglas.

The crew was great and the overall operation of the day was very smooth. This was a perfect half day experience for the area if your time is limited and you can’t do a full day. As novice snorkelers we especially appreciated the detailed instruction and tips to a successful swim around the reef. We loved every minute of it!

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.

What a lovely day out. Beautiful weather, beautiful cruise and crew. Not as beautiful smorkeling as the outer reef but the trip there and back outweighed the fish. Would definable recommend this to anyone who loves a sunset and a classy cruise with champers!
