    What to Expect
    Surrounded by 55 acres (22 hectares) of reef, the low-lying coral key of Low Isles provides an excellent base for exploring the famous coral formations and marine life of the Great Barrier Reef. After pickup at your Port Douglas hotel, climb aboard a luxurious 98-foot (30-meter) sailing catamaran with room for up to 200 passengers. Relax in an air-conditioned cabins or lounge on the sun decks while cruising across the beautiful aquatic landscape of the Coral Sea. Learn about the marine life you can expect to see with an onboard presentation by a marine biologist.

    After arriving at Low Isles, don provided equipment and snorkel straight off the beach to begin exploring the reef. Swim in designated areas on your own, or join a guided tour to learn more about the coral gardens and creatures you see, including giant clams, tropical fish and green sea turtles. You can also experience the reef from the dry cabin of a glass-bottom boat and explore the white sand beaches and tropical forest of the island on a guided nature walk.

    Recharge your energy with a tropical buffet lunch plus morning and afternoon tea. If you prefer something stronger, treat yourself to a cocktail from the catamaran’s fully licensed bar (own expense). After several hours of adventure and relaxation, enjoy the luxurious return cruise to Port Douglas, where your full-day tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.

    Note: Book early to secure your spot, and enjoy a flexible reservations policy that allows you to change the date of your tour at no additional charge once you arrive in Port Douglas.

    We had a fantastic day on the beautiful low isles. The crew were outstanding especially the marine biologist Graham whose passion and knowledge of the area really showed. An unexpected highlight of the day was the champagne and being serenaded by one of the crew on the way back

    Boat was nice, we were lucky it wasn’t full so had a good amount of people. Morning tea was biscuits and afternoon tea chunks of cheese, could have easily put more effort in. Mostly disappointed with a staff member-in a tiny bikini on the boat with young kids looking at her,
