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.

Fantastic!

Great trip, value for money and awesome staff. This trip exceeded our expectations because we went out to the reef where not many boats were. It was a small group of people but for us that was part of the attraction because you could ask as many questions as you wanted as well as a decent amount of snorkelling on 2 different reefs. We saw a lot of fish, coral, stingrays and turtles. The crew gave us informative information about the reef and do’s and dont’s for protecting the reef. Suitable for all ages and would highly recommend this trip. We travelled from Port Douglas and had to get up very early but we were so glad we did. Freddy and Glen were absolutely amazing crew and made the trip into the experience it was. Do yourself a favour and book this trip and I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Great day out on the reef

Our trip got cancelled due to heavy thunderstorms, but the staff quickly found us a spot on the next day's tour. It was an amazing day out, with a fantastic, knowledgeable crew and a visit to the beautiful Mackay Reef. We saw several turtles and even a reef shark! The crew was very patient and tried their best to make us feel comfortable on the boat and in the water. Would go again!

Hi Lieve, Thanks so much for your lovely review! Our Wet Season Storms are absolutely spectacular but definitely not something you want to be out on the water in. We're so pleased you had a fantastic experience out at Mackay Reef and got to meet some of our Beautiful Sea Turtles! Thanks Team Ocean Safari
