What you can expect

Escape to Great Keppel Island in the Southern Great Barrier Reef on this day tour from Yeppoon with lunch and snorkel hire. Keppel as it’s affectionately called by the locals, is a little known secret boasting pristine shores and untouched coral reefs that are accessible to snorkel straight from the beach. Pack your swimmers and jump on the ferry and you’ll find yourself arriving in a tropical paradise within 40 minutes. Stepping onto the golden shores with your snorkel equipment, swim out to the fringing coral reefs straight from the beach to enter this magical underwater world. Colourful fish and coral are awash with colour and buzz on this hidden gem in the Southern Great Barrier Reef. In between your snorkelling sessions, stop in to the GKI Hideaway for a lunch and a glass of beer, wine or soft drink. If you fancy a bush walk then hit the scenic walking trails to discover untouched corners of the island with outstanding natural flora and fauna. A return ferry transfer will transport you back to Yeppoon after a relaxing day spent visiting one of the most unique islands of the East Coast of Australia.
