Double Island Sea Kayaking and Snorkeling, Half Day Tour - Cairns

You will be amazed at the beauty of what Double Island and its surrounding reefs hold.

We start the tour with an introduction to paddling a sea kayak and a quick safety talk. It's not long before we are paddling over the beautiful fringing reefs with fish and rays jumping in front of us and ospreys overhead.

We pull the kayaks up to the beach at Scout's Hat and explore the rock pools for octopus, sea cucumber, crabs, soft corals and a vast array of Great Barrier Reef fish.

We then paddle around the eastern side of the island and explore some great caves - in some cases we will snorkel into these caves! Just around the corner is our resting place on the coral fringed beach. Fresh fruit and juices are laid out on the natural rock table. Everybody can snorkel here as the waters are always calm

Around the western side of the island we stop again to explore the exclusive Double Island resort, this is where the movie stars stay while in FNQ! We again explore the shoreline with blue spotted lagoon rays, mangrove rays, shovel nose sharks and a host of other marine life can be seen.

During the paddle home, turtles and dolphins can quite often pop up in front of us.

*Snorkeling is dependent on conditions during the day (visibility etc)*

Half day tour

We had an awesome day! Guide was great, equipment excellent and we enjoyed the snorkeling so much! Very flexible in our request to change the route due to young arms being tired! Thankyou for a memorable day!

Incredible !

This an absolutely incredible experience. When we got to the jetty to meet Brad our tour guide he quickly took us down to the beach to point out the beautiful mantaray that had come to the shore line to feed (a very rare sighting). Then the rest of the tour we kayaked to 3 stunning islands on perfectly calm,crystal blue waters. I was a bit nervous about snorkelling because of the stinger season but Brad was fully prepared with stinger suits for us and we did not encounter a single jellyfish. We learnt so much about the history of the land/islands and saw so many beautiful fish when we were snorkeling. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and can’t wait to come back and do it again!

Sea kayak and snorkelling

Could not recommend Brad at Palm Cove Watersports highly enough. Had a fantastic time on the 1/2 day Sea Kayak and Snorkelling. Brad was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. Saw more than I expected and didn't want the trip to end. Great trip ��
