Private Charter Yacht Option 1

Low Isles

The Low Isles are a spectacular island group located on the Inner Barrier Reef only 8 nautical miles offshore from Port Douglas, usually about a 1 hour sail.

The Low Isles Islands offer beautiful and easy snorkelling, plenty of turtles and sea life, relaxing on the beach and enjoying our water sports activities.

The island is home to a lighthouse and there are historical walks and educational items to view 

This is a perfect location for kids, or guests who are learning to snorkel.

The island is visited by other Great Barrier Reef tour boats, and you may find yourself sharing the beach on this small Island.

This island also offers a safe anchorage in windy conditions.

There is no scuba diving permitted in the Low Isles.

Private Charter Yacht Option 2

Outer Reef – Tongue Reef

Our second recommended option is to sail out to Tongue Reef. This is a gorgeous reef located 18 miles offshore from Port Douglas on the Outer Barrier Reef, about a 2 hour transit.

Tongue Reef offers a wider variety of coral species and more marine life. You can really see all the Reef has to offer here, and we often engage in ‘drift’ snorkels here.

This coral reef location can please both experienced scuba divers and the younger ones alike.

We can cater to all your preferences and have activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving (extra cost), stand up paddle boarding, fishing, spearfishing and of course sailing.

For scuba diving an instructor is required along with all the certified gear. Add approximately $860 a day for 2 divers / $1000 a day for 3 divers and $1150 a day for 4 divers / with 2 dives each day.

Prices and dive numbers to be quoted on booking the luxury private charter yacht.

We have a dive compressor onboard the yacht.
