As we are a fly bridge motor cruiser we can access the inner and outer ribbon reefs, continental islands, sand cays and serene lagoons, as well as deep diving sites and proven fishing hotspots on our one day boat charters.
From Port Douglas in less than half an hour you will be snorkelling with sea turtles or visiting the historic lighthouse at Low Isles, or cruising a few minutes further north we will arrive at Snapper Island, so called because of its silhoutte looks just like a crocodile head.
During the northern tropical winter months of May to September we have the opportunity for some whale watching as they migrate to the safe waters of the Great Barrier Reef to calve.
For the avid fisherman we can set up some lines to hook the catch of the day!
