Highlights

  • Keep your eyes peeled in the glass bottom boat for sea turtles as there are many that call these islands home. Or you could spot some of these magnificent creatures while snorkelling the low Isles coral gardens
  • If you love drifting across the surface, why not discover the reef from deep within? Talk to your tour operator about trying your first ever introductory dive!

Perfect Selfie

  • Pure shores? Most certainly. Snap yourself on the proverbial tropical beach, and tell all the folks back home you were on a secluded 7000 year old cay!

Itinerary

Sail to Low Isles from Port Douglas

Your gleaming luxury sailboat awaits at the picturesque Port Douglas Reef Marina! Once on board the 30m catamaran, you’ll settle in the stunning lounge or expansive deck.  A sumptuous morning tea is on offer, and as you set sail, the welcoming crew will provide a brief marine presentation and all the snorkelling tips you’ll need for your reef discovery. You’ll glide by the beauty of emerald-coloured mountains on the horizon, and perhaps even catch sight of a majestic osprey flying to the same Low Isles destination! This vessel is your personal haven for the day, and it’s from here you’ll take a craft to the pristine island shores to be suited up for snorkelling. This is also the floating sanctuary where morning and afternoon tea, along with a tropical lunch will be served. And feel free to soak up the sun onboard the spacious decks or the lavish beach with a cool refreshment from the licensed bar.

A great day, except for the weather, but this can't be helped. The snorkling tour with the Marine Biologist was very informative and seeing the coral and fish from the glass bottom boat was also good. The crew was very well informed and provided excellent information. Lunch was terrific and plenty for all. A rather rocky trip back due to the wind, but the crew kept an eye on all passengers to ensure they were safe and anyone who was feeling seasick were well taken care of.

Response From Barrier Reef Australia

Thanks for your feedback Janine. It is unfortunate that sometimes the weather doesn't cater to our plans but we are pleased to hear the crew were on hand to assist and you had a great day on the Great Barrier Reef.
