Cape Tribulation snorkel tours. Half day snorkel tours to the outer Great Barrier Reef to snorkel and explore 2 uniquely different coral reefs alive with colourful marine life and corals Book a half day snorkel tour for the morning or an afternoon snorkel tour
We set off from Cape Tribulation on the coastline of the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest to another World Heritage listed icon the Great Barrier Reef that lines the East Coast of Australia for our 2 x half day snorkel tours where we show off our wonderful reef to Far North Queensland visitors all year round.
Our half day snorkel tours are an exhilarating 25 minute fast rib boat ride out to two coral reefs known as Mackay Reef and Undine Reef.
We normally carry 25 guests on our snorkel tours but due to social distancing we now only carry 18 guests making it a very personalised Great Barrier Reef tour
For the half day morning snorkel tour or the afternoon tour we spend 2 hours exploring the wonderful vibrant reefs and their eco systems.
Please Note:- The afternoon tour runs regularly July-October, and on demand the rest of the year
These 2 coral reefs are home to resident turtles who are certainly not shy in saying hello when our snorkelers descend under the water and into their homely domain.
