Ocean Safari offers an exhilarating ride to snorkel the pristine untouched Great Barrier Reef off the Daintree Coast at Cape Tribulation. This half day eco tour visits two different snorkel destinations, each with an extraordinary array of marine life and coral species.The tour begins at Cape Tribulation beach where guests board the vessel bound for the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. After an exhilarating fast ride of approximately 25 minutes 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, home to an abundance of marine life as well as beautiful hard and soft corals.The Ocean Safari vessel takes a maximum of 25 passengers 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. The Ocean Safari check in office is at the Turtle Rock Cafe and Safari Lodge, Cape Tribulation Road and a courtesy bus pick up from Cape Tribulation accommodation is included. Ocean Safari has Advanced Eco Accreditation.

We travelled to the reef on a beautiful sunny day with Kane and Sarah. They were amazing guides to lead our reef trip. The boat ride took only 25 minutes during which Kane shared with us some history about the Daintree area and discussed the importance of environmental conservation - as a Geography teacher, I appreciated this! Once at the... More

Don't consider any other GBR trip. Intimate, untouched and the guides have a wealth of knowledge of their land & sea to share. An incredible morning with the Team, keep doing your wonderful work guys. The Larkins

We went out with Sarah on the 13th January to the reef, what a great day! Both Sarah and the skipper were amazing. Both took the time to ensure we had a great day and educated us with local facts along the way. I have been in a couple of snorkelling trips in the past but I enjoyed the small... More

If you're deciding on a reef snorkel experience, bypass Cairns and Port Douglas and come here. I cannot say a single thing negative about this experience. We visited on Jan 9th, 2017. We were booked in for a morning snorkel. Originally we had a party of 3 and at last minute I sent them and email to add another and... More
