Full description
Begin your day in paradise with a transfer from your Port Douglas accommodation to the marina. Upon arrival, you will board the luxury catamaran for an early morning departure. Once on board, delight in freshly brewed tea or coffee, with mini apple and cinnamon muffins, and Danish pastries. The vessel moves smoothly and comfortably across the ocean, offering guests a unique Great Barrier Reef experience. You will skip the crowds and arrive in the Low Isles before most other visitors. 

Spot the beautiful Low Isles in the distance after the 15-kilometer journey. See the protected coral cay, white sandy beaches, and coconut palms. The boat will moor in the sheltered blue lagoon for 4.5 hours. Relax on the island, join a guided snorkel tour lead by a marine naturalist, take a trip on the glass bottom boat, join the heritage walk, or just laze on deck. The marine biologist will provide in-depth information about the reef and its colorful inhabitants. 

A gourmet, alfresco lunch will be served, including freshly cooked prawns, tandoori chicken, ham and roast beef, potato salad, mixed green salad, Asian noodle salad, bakery fresh bread and more. Enjoy a tropical fruit platter for afternoon tea and an exhilarating sail back to Port Douglas. Transfer back to your Port Douglas accommodation, where your tour will end.
