A secluded tropical paradise, set like a jewel in the Great Barrier Reef, Low Isles is an idyllic, unspoilt coral cay island. Combined with the romance of sailing aboard a luxury 30-metre sailing catamaran, Wavedancer, this is the perfect day for families and couples seeking island relaxation.
As you board the boat, you'll enjoy morning tea with tea and coffee included before setting sail. Then, the moment Wavedancer moors in the calm waters of the island’s picturesque lagoon, a host of reef activities await. The friendly crew will take you on a leisurely, informative day where island visitor numbers are limited.
Discover the mysteries of marine life while snorkelling, which is a ton of fun and a brilliant way to view this watery wonderland. All equipment is provided, and a friendly supervisor is on hand to give you a few tips. Snorkelling direct from the beach, you can discover the corals very close to the island making for an enjoyable experience for snorkelers of all abilities. You'll even have the opportunity to join organised snorkel expeditions and view the creatures of the reef under the guidance of a Marine Biologist.
If you prefer to stay dry, or just see the reef from a different perspective, join the glass bottom boat tour. It leaves the island regularly and cruises over the delicate soft coral gardens that surround Low Isles. An informative commentary will be conducted to point out the corals, brightly coloured tropical fish and magnificent giant clams. Perhaps this is your chance to meet a turtle!
While the water is alluring, there's also a lot to see on dry land. The knowledgeable Marine Biologist conducts a guided beach walk, showing you the unique marine life living at the water's edge. You'll also hear about flora and fauna inhabiting the island, along with the history of Low Isles as an important place of marine research. Plus, you can take a guided tour through a “Heritage Walk”, which outlines human use of the island, past and present.
Once you've worked up a hearty appetite, a tropical buffet lunch is served on board. There is also a fully licensed bar operating all day where you can purchase beverages.
At the end of the day, afternoon tea is also served onboard as you relax under the sails on your homeward journey.
