A Magnetic Island snorkel tour with a difference, snorkeling in remote bays, meeting marine life that wait for us, seeing native Australian wildlife, and combing remote beaches without seeing other humans. Our Magnetic Island snorkel tours are all about connecting you with this beautiful island.
We have lived on Magnetic Island for over 35 years so we will show you all the secret snorkel locations around Magnetic Island that others have never seen.
Join us for 5 hours of discovery, joy and beauty as we make our way around the island in our custom built boat that was designed to cater for all people from all walks of life.
Due to the size and design of our Great Barrier Reef tour boat we are able to manoeuvre into little bays and secluded beaches, and hover around some beautiful coral lagoons and fringing reef and snorkel just off the boat.
Our Magnetic Island snorkel tour is really something special so don’t miss it even if you are staying on the mainland in Townsville.
"Maggie", as she is affectionately known by local residents, is situated a close 8 km off the coast of Townsville, in Tropical North Queensland.
It only takes 25 minutes on passenger ferry, or 40 minutes with your car on the barge from Townsville to arrive in paradise.
