This half day eco tour visits two different snorkel destinations, each with an extraordinary array of marine life and coral species. After a fast 25 minute ride, guests are ready to snorkel two fabulous locations at Mackay and Undine Reefs. On most days, the rainforest can be seen along the mainland beach whilst snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef alongside sea turtles, which are found in abundance swimming over reefs full of colourful coral, along with myriads of tropical fish, eagle rays, giant clams and starfish. The tour begins at Cape Tribulation beach where guests board the vessel bound for the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. This vessel caters for small group tours allowing guests to experience tropical paradise and the pleasure of a small group. The vessel is based on the original design of a rescue craft and is a rigid inflatable boat driven by 700hp engines. The experienced Skipper and Eco Host ensure the trip is filled with fun and appreciation of the Great Barrier Reef and the coastal rainforest of the Daintree, two world heritage areas side by side. Magical memories like these sometimes only happen once in a lifetime.
Absolutely unreal day thanks to Ocean Safari and the lovely staff! Hands down the best tour we’ve ever done.
We did the 12:30pm tour with Eve and Col and had an absolute blast. They were both super professional and made the experience fun and exciting. The vibe was so good with the music playing in the boat, epic playlist. We felt super safe and felt as though Eve and Col were there to help us with anything we needed. The service was exceptional including the ice-cold ciders and beer when we finished snorkelling. Eve and Col were super friendly and made the experience super personal, they also had amazing knowledge about the area which they shared. Definitely the best tour we’ve done to date and would 100% go again!
We were taken out on a speed boat to the middle of the Great Barrier Reef.
We had the most amazing trip. We have been on so many tours and this is the first one that we got to see the most amazing colourful coral. The staff answered all our questions and made sure that we had a pleasant journey. The snorkelling was guided if you wanted to join in but it was also possible to go off on your own. Courtney did the guided snorkel and pointed out so many animals and fish with full explanations on everything. Hands down best trip since I've been in Aus. 10/10 Thanks to the crew.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! We saw 3 turtles and plenty of other sea-life. This experience is so much better than the larger commercial tours to the reef. The skipper and Snorkel guide was brilliant! The remoteness of the location and the tiny island! I want to go back already.
