Why do we love this
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most beautiful places in Australia, full of sparkling sea, brilliant fish and vibrant coral. What we love about this tour is that it doesn't just show you these amazing sights, but on board eco hosts also teach you about them and leave you with a lasting appreciation for this incredible area! We think pairing this, with the ever-stunning reef is pretty cool.
WHAT TO EXPECT
It's time to explore the pristine Great Barrier Reef off the Daintree Coast at Cape Tribulation... this is a natural paradise. Snorkel among stunning sea life, marvel at extraordinary coral species and enjoy boat trips through some of Australia's most beautiful ocean.
Your tour begins at Cape Tribulation beach where you'll board the boat ready to head into the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. With only 25 passengers, this trip will be small, personal and full of fun and laughter.
Your eco hosts for the trip will be on hand to give you information about the amazing reef and to ensure your trip is filled with fun and appreciation of this incredible place. The Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree rainforest are two world heritage areas side by side, and it's important to recognise the importance of these natural wonders. Enjoy learning about these areas as you bob over the waves.
After a fast 25-minute boat ride, it's time to stop and get snorkelling! Explore Mackay and Undine Reefs, watch bright marine fish dart through vibrant coral and soak up the Queensland sun. On most days you'll be able to catch glimpses of the rainforest while you swim and dive. There's even the chance to swim alongside stunning sea turtles, eagle rays, giant clams and starfish.
Courtesy pickups from Cape Tribulation accommodation are included in this tour and the Ocean Safari tour is proud to have Advanced Eco Accreditation.
