Overview

A FAST, FUN EXCITING BOAT RIDE JUST 15 MIN TO THE LOW ISLES REEF! Then one and a half hours of spectacular snorkelling in shallow protected water, followed by the 15 minute boat ride back. All up, this is a 2 and a quarter hour reef trip that will give you half a day to do something else and you won't get sea sick!

Definitely worth taking the trip out on the speedboat. Out to the reef in about 20 minutes, crashing through the waves. I often get sea-sick, but not this time - it was over too quickly! Great guides and gear enabling us to explore the shallow...More

We came to Port Douglas for a week after the Iron Man Triathalon in Cairns. We are from Toowoomba where there is no coast, I am the only one of all three of us that hadn’t snorkelled and I had such a great time. I...More

Great morning out on Low Island. Bevon and Matt were very relaxed, but also helpful. Great for those that don’t like the ‘structured tour’ and want to just go out and do their own thing. Even saw a turtle 🐢

This was one of the best things I have ever done. Never having snorkled before I wasn't confident it would be for me, but with the option of the glass bottom boat I thought I'd give it a go. I LOVED it. What a wonderful...More

While we were in Cairns the wind was quite strong and as much as we wanted to go out to the reef to snorkel, we did not fancy the boat ride out in the windy conditions. After we shifted up to Mossman for the 2nd...More

Admittedly I was hoping for an outer reef trip but it’s a quiet time in Port Douglas so I went on the low isles trip. Saw lots of great fish, turtles and the coral wasn’t bad for the inner reef. The staff are great, it’s...More
