Reef Trip - Ocean Safari - Snorkel The Great Barrier Reef - Cape Tribulation

Join Ocean Safari as we set off from The Daintree Coast, Cape Tribulation, for an exhilarating ride out to snorkel some of the most pristine areas of the Great Barrier Reef! This is your chance to snorkel with Turtles!

Highlights

  • Quickest tour to the Great Barrier Reef! Only 25 minutes there with 2 hours to explore the reef
  • Visit to two stunning reef locations with pristine coral
  • Swim with turtles!
  • Small group tour – maximum 25 people
  • Advanced Ecotourism Certified operation

On a clear day you will be able to see the Rainforest on the coastline as you snorkel the reef, it's a truly amazing experience.

This is a snorkel only trip, however if you wish you can come along for the ride and just enjoy being on the water. Being a short and fast 25 minute ride to the reef, the risk of sea sickness is minimized and easily allows us to visit 2 locations on the one half day trip. You will get to see an extraordinary array of coral species and marine life!

The boat ride to the reef, while we take every precaution to make this trip as safe as possible, is for the adventurous so if you have any serious pre-existing back or neck injuries we don't advise this trip, if you are at all concerned please contact us and we will discuss options.

Your experienced eco host and skipper will ensure you are left with an appreciation for this World Heritage area and a smile on your face.

Ocean Safari Reef Tour

Both Selina and Adam were fantastic. The ride across to Mackay Coral Cay was absolutely stunning, and fun. same for return trip. Great choice of music, Adam. Selina, thank you for your patience and kindness for someone who had never snorkelled before and not confident swimmer in the ocean. You were superb and made my first snorkel experience easy and 'safe' for me. We will be tsking the trip out again next time we are up ay Cape Trib! It was the best time our family had in our time up north.

Ocean Safari. Good stuff!

Wonderful staff and crew made our reef visit all we could have hoped for. It is worth mentioning that this is not a dry boat ride. You board the vessel in the surf near the beach, not at a sheltered pier. Once all aboard, the skipper cranks up the sound system and the twin Yamahas that push you at 20+ knots through choppy seas for a 1/2 hour ride out to the reef. You will catch some spray but enjoy every minute of it! Kudos to the captain and mate for keeping it fun and informational. Finally, please respect the crews instructions to help preserve the reef.

Awesome

It was a fantastic morning, the staff from Ocean Safari were amazing,the skipper and Brooke were very knowledgeable and extremely passionate about their job and area of snorkelling. Nothing was too much trouble and Brooke was extremely patient with me as I struggled a little with the high tide. She was a wonderful individual with a great heart.
