SV-INO Port Douglas Day Charter

Departing: Port Douglas

Private Charter Boat

Based in beautiful Port Douglas Queensland Australia and catering to smaller numbers of only 12 privileged guests, this 13-metre French designed private charter boat is perfect for that family celebration or small company get together.

This beautiful private charter boat is compact but designed with good interior and exterior space to laze about and enjoy the coastal and ocean scenery as you sail along. You'll journey to Low Isles and Snapper Island on the Great Barrier Reef on your day charter. 

At both islands, you can snorkel around in comfort knowing the boat is only a little distance away and land is close at hand. All snorkelling and flotation equipment is provided as are the sun suits and wetsuits which are laundered daily. 

Sunset Charters from Port Douglas

Private Charter Sunset Cruises can be for two hours leaving at 4.30pm and returning to the Port Douglas Marina at 6.30pm. Or you may choose an afternoon of pleasure from 12.00 noon to 6.30pm snorkelling off Low Isles and then a sunset cruise back into Port Douglas which is the perfect way to end a perfect day.

An afternoon cruise and sunset would be the most romantic opportunity for you to hold a small private wedding celebration onboard the boat and then sail home in the dwindling light of the day in the arms of your new husband or new wife surrounded by some of your closest family and friends.

Catering can be arranged at your personal request and you may bring along your own alcoholic drinks and soft drinks for your consumption.

Snapper Island - Private Charter Boat Trip

Snapper Island is located just off Cape Kimberley near the mouth of the Daintree Rainforest and river and it rises 99 metres above sea level and is home to low-level rainforest vegetation which supports some migratory seabirds. It is also part of the Kuku Yulanji peoples country and they still hunt in the waters around this island at various times of the year.

Only one commercial tourism boat goes to Snapper Island daily (with a permit, permit cost included in price) so it’s a very private location. At times you may see some sea kayakers making their way around the island. Snapper Island's beaches are very beautiful and private, a great way to get away from other people and big crowds of tourists.

History of Snapper Island

In years gone by this island was used as a processing station for beche-de-mer or as we Australians call them Sea Cucumber which is a Chinese delicacy. The harvesting of Sea Cucumbers is now banned on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Today you may still possibly see the remnants of stonework from what is thought to be a Chinese garden as you wander around this little island.

The island got its name because some folks think it looks like the head of a crocodile on the water’s surface thus Snapper Island it became.

Low Isles - Great Barrier Reef

Low Isles is a small coral cay made up of two islands, one called Woody Island which is full of Mangroves and seagrass beds and the other a coral island known as Low Isles just an hours sail from Port Douglas.

Together they provide shelter for mooring and the perfect habitat for sea turtles. You will the turtles either sleeping on the ocean floor or on coral bommies or swimming right up beside you as though you do not even exist.

Low Isles lighthouse and museum

Low Isles has an old lighthouse and a mini-museum that you can explore as you take a wander around this lovely little tropical island. There is a lot of maritime history, Aboriginal cultural history and the ongoing weather and marine research that is carried out here still today by marine scientists from the world over is shared with other researchers worldwide.

Between 1926 – 1929 Low Isles was the site of the first detailed scientific study of a coral reef anywhere in the world and still today this baseline data is used in modern research to study the change in reef systems growth and decline.
