If you only have one day to snorkel over the coral, take the Low Isles trip on Wavedancer, operated by Quicksilver Cruises. The journey to the island is about 45 minutes from Port Douglas, and once there a shuttle boat takes you from Wavedancer to the island. From there you can slide into the water from the beach - very... More

We booked the WaveDancer while on a cruise in Australia. We had a very full day at sea, first enjoying our ride on catamaran to the Low Isles, then touring the reef on a glass bottom boat. We could clearly see the various corals and fish including a reef shark which swam directly under us. It was a good experience.... More

We were picked up from our hotel in Cairns but as we were the only people on the bus for quite a while the driver gave us a private tour which was great as we didn't have much time in that in part of Australia. There was plenty of space on board inside and out. Iced water and squash was... More

The day was perfect. Everyone was keen to sail to Low Isles for fun filled day of snorkelling, exploring the island, spotting a green turtles and more. As we approached Low Isles the captain announced the boat had technical issues, we be forced to return to Port Douglas if the issues cannot be fixed. Sadly the issues couldn't be resolved... More

Nice way to see the Reef with smaller children. Boat is big enough to feel safe with kids but not overwhelming. Relatively short travel time to the Reef is great and there is enough time on the island to snorkel and explore. Friendly and professional crew

This is a great day trip out snorkelling off Low Isles with a young family, kids aged 4 & 6. The crew are very knowledgeable and do their best to direct you to the best spots. It was surprisingly suitable to the kids. Staff provided flotation vests and noodles for the kids. Stinger suits and all snorkelling equipment were a... More

My sister and her family were out from the UK visiting so we decided to do this trip, it was amazing. My 10 year old nephew swam with a huge lemon shark in the shallows, an experience he will never forget!! Saw turtles, Reef sharks, a lemon shark and plenty of other fish. Really well organised and great for families... More

We had an amazing experience with the team on Wavedancer. The whole team were very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make your day fun. It was reassuring that how to snorkel and what not do was explained and how important it is to protect the reef. Having Russell the marine biologist who explained so much in detail was... More
