    Traveller Tips

    The water is very murky and stirred up so you really can't see much through the glass, be sure to bring some flip flops or water shoes, the Island is VERY coarse and hurts your feet.

    The experience was wonderful! The crew was so friendly and knowledgeable. We loved snorkeling and everything was explained so well. The island tour was very interesting
    A fantastic family experience!
    Catherine_L, Mar 2023
    This is a fantastic tour. We enjoyed it so much we have done it twice. Unlike other operators we saw, the tour group is smaller making for a more personal experience. Being able to snorkel off the beach was great for the kids. We were shown such incredible marine life by very knowledgeable guides who showed great passion and respect for the environment. Wonderful!

    The crews (Mark, Fletcher and another guy) are very professional and very friendly. Our kids are 10 and 12 years old with average swimming skill. You don't need to swim very fast to spot the turtles and reef shark. They even show you around the island and the lighthouse. The afternoon tea on the way back is really a bonus for the kids. Highly recommended to traveler with kids.
    Early morning cruise
    Angela_F, Nov 2022
    Enjoyed the small early morning group the three crew members were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Coral reef and marine life were stunning combined with the walk round the island. Definitely a worthwhile trip.
    Great relaxed experience

    It was a rainy chilly day not great for a day on a tropical island, but the coral the fish and swimming with a turtle were fabulous! I loved the day to the Low Islands.
    Very enjoyable day

    Trish_P, June 2022
    Great reef experience although the weather was a little rough on our trip. The crew were fabulous and very well organized and courteous. We saw plenty of turtles and were back in Port Douglas before lunch with the rest of the day to relax.
    A must do activity, it was fantastic

    A family experience we won’t forget.
    Brianna_J, May 2022
    Such a fun day out. Crew where very knowledgeable. Made us feel very safe. Our kids had an amazing day. The length of time was perfect for the kids as they where zonked. We saw plenty of beautiful coral, plenty of fish and ever a sea turtle. Would highly recommend. Our kids are 8,6 and almost 5. And even if you don’t snorkel the glass bottom boat painted a good picture and we saw plenty of ocean life from standing on the beach of the isle.
    Excellent crew
    Andrew_S, Apr 2022
    Sea Turtles were great and large fish! Quick trip out and half a day is plenty of time! Great morning tea on the way back!
    Fantastic snorkeling even for those who don't love boat trips
    Chris_D, Apr 2022
    The trip out to Low Isles was fantastic. I have two family members who do not love boating and were concerned with a big trip. The short, 40 mins out to Low Isles was perfect for them. The snorkeling was fantastic with lots of coral, fish and more than a few green sea turtles. Crew and guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.
    Definitely a wonderful experience
    Dannielle_F, Mar 2022
    This experience was fun and full of action Had a wonderful and knowledgeable crew who took us out and assisted us with snorkelling and information about the low isles
    Best experience on the reef!
    Catherine_L, Feb 2022
    We saw so many beautiful fish, turtles and reef sharks. What a fantastic morning. When we are back in Port Douglas we will definitely repeat this experience. Mark, Kelsey and Taylor were absolutely awesome!!

    Tonia_D, Oct 2021
    Great trip for the family. The reef is regenerating beautifully after the cyclone and the excessive dry period. Lots of soft corals and fish. Parrot fish looking beautiful and we saw an octopus in all its glory. Baby sharks. Clams. Stag horn coral. Lovely. Crew were very helpful. Nice morning out and tour of isle included ospreys and pied pigeons and a turtle. Recommend to all
    Amazing experience for the entire family.
    Katrina_C, Sept 2021
    Green sea turtles, Reef sharks, Ospreys and the beautiful fish and coral. Informative guides and professional set up.
    Very enjoyable trip on a smaller boat so more personal and a gorgeous location.
    Tracey_P, July 2021
    Great trip. Lovely and helpful crew. Small boat so less people and much more personal. Gorgeous location with easy snorkeling. Highlight was swimming with turtles.
