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.
