Location

Book this half-day Port Douglas tour to enjoy a relaxing 3-hour river drift snorkel in the rainforest with return hotel transfers from Mossman and Port Douglas included. Experience the rainforest like never before as you jump on your own river sled and gently float down the river under the ferns of the rainforest canopy. This family-friendly activity in Port Douglas will see you snorkelling the river to see a bounty of fish. If you are quiet, you may even spot a few shy turtles and platypus as you make your way down the river.

This Port Douglas river drift snorkel is a unique way to experience the rainforest and all of its wonderful creatures in a safe environment. Tours are available twice a day at 9 am and 2 pm so that you can easily squeeze in another Port Douglas activity into your itinerary in the morning or afternoon.

Such a great experience staff were friendly and very informative. Food was good, everything included. I recommend doing the helicopter ride above the reef! (Purchased on the day at extra cost). Worth every cent! A must do while holidaying in Port Douglas.
