Just a short drive back from the coast, the spectacular rainforests of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation offer a verdant world brimming with open air adventures. Set off into the jungle on an eye-opening night-time jungle adventure, challenge yourself to an invigorating hike or cool off with a dip in a natural pool under a cascading waterfall.
Of course, there’s nowhere closer to the breathtaking world wonder of the Great Barrier Reef. The Low Isles — a lovely coral cay where you can snorkel and swim with green turtles — is within easy reach of our Port Douglas holiday rentals. But, whether you’re interested in snorkelling, diving, fishing or simply feel like a lazy cruise across the reef, there’s a tour to suit every interest...
Reef Sprinter caters for those looking for a true half-day reef experience without spending all day getting there. We have two options: Low Isles Reef & Outer Reef. The Low Isles Reef is just 15 minutes away from Port Douglas and you won't get seasick! The trip is 2 ¼ hours all together, which includes 1 ½ of snorkelling.
Sailaway based in Cape Tribulation, offers a luxury sailing and snorkelling day trip to Mackay Cay on the Outer Barrier Reef, a unique tropical Coral Cay.
