5 Things You Never Dreamed of Doing In Far North Queensland!

Samantha Carver on June 6th, 2018

Seawalker Helmet Tour

Did you ever imagine you could walk on the ocean floor? It sounds like something from a movie, but on the shores of tropical Green Island, you can make this a real life experience!

On the phenomenal Seawalker helmet dive, you can actually trek among breathtaking coral gardens.

No diving experience is necessary for you to explore the fathoms on this remarkable tour; all you’ll need is a sense of adventure.

Breathing easily underwater, you’ll encounter a rainbow of reef fish swimming nearly close enough to touch!

The island is well known for the local sea turtle population, so keep your eyes peeled for one of these creatures on this unique experience.

Go Jungle Surfing!

The Daintree is the oldest rainforest known to man, where you’ll find a modern day thrill unlike any other!

Take the opportunity to soar through the rainforest canopies on a zipline with amazing views of the World Heritage Rainforest and across to the Coral Sea.

Keep your eyes peeled for some of our rare native animals sitting by to catch a sight of the humans flying through their domain.

Backwards, forwards, upside down, jungle surfing is so fun and easy, even a three year old can do it!  If you are travelling to Cape Tribulation yourself, Jungle Surfing is a great addition to the day. 

Not hiring a car?  There are some amazing small group tours to get on board so you don’t miss this amazing experience.

Spend a Night under the Stars on the Great Barrier Reef

A once in a lifetime opportunity!  After an action packed day full of snorkelling and more, wave goodbye to the day visitors and spend a night with only a handful of guests in glamping luxury on board the Moore Reef pontoon

Take in the tranquil surroundings of this incredible Outer Reef location as the hub-bub of kids and families departs and you are left in to enjoy the peace and quiet. 

With all meals and snacks, comfortable swags and eco-friendly toiletries, your stay is guaranteed to be one of comfort. 

Enjoy a guided snorkel tour with the Marine Biologist as well as exclusive night time access to the underwater observatory and see the creatures of the reef as you’ve never seen them before. 

You will be hard-pressed to pick a favourite scene – the stunning sunset at day end, or the beauty of the sunrise over the reef the following morning.  What a way to start the day – just you and the local inhabitants of this amazing location, swimming the morning away.

Beat the crowds aboard your own private boat!

Looking for that ideal family escape, romantic day on the reef or celebration amongst friends?  There’s no need to share when you can travel on board your own luxury charter boat

The perfect way to keep everyone happy – spend the morning in the fertile fishing grounds and maybe land a nice mackerel for lunch, then head into the sheltered waters of the marine National Park and gear up for an afternoon of snorkelling the incredible coral reefs with just your favourite people. 

Or perhaps a cruisy winter day on the water is more your style – spotting some of our seasonal Humpback and Minke whale visitors on their way past.  Whatever your wish on the water, we can make it come true. 

With an experienced skipper and friendly deck hand and host on board, this is the ultimate way to experience the Great Barrier Reef. 

The ultimate Far North Queensland experience – Outback Heli Fishing

Not just for the millionaires!  This is the ultimate must do for the fishing fanatics. 

Travel via helicopter to the mighty Mitchell River – home of the iconic Barramundi. 

With all fishing gear, bait and tackle supplied, this is the best opportunity to reel in one of our prize fish from a top secret destination. 

Throw in a delicous lunch on the banks of the river, coupled with the stunning aerial scenery and a stop at the Mt Mulgrave Homestead and you have yourself the ultimate Far North fishing brag!
