Full description
Meet at the marina for an afternoon departure on the luxury "Sailaway" catamaran. Upon arrival, delight in freshly-brewed Tropical North Queensland tea or Jaques coffee with a light lunch. Take off for a leisurely 15-kilometer journey to the Low Isles. After some slow and smooth cruising, Sailaway will moor in the sheltered blue lagoon for 3 hours. The crew will set you up with complimentary snorkeling equipment and optical masks (and seasonal lycra snorkeling suits or wetsuits and flotation devices if required). Relax on the island, join the guided snorkel tour lead by a marine naturalist, take a trip on the glass-bottom boat and join the guided heritage walk. The marine biologist will provide in-depth information about the reef and its colorful inhabitants. Cure your curiosity - there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Afterward, enjoy afternoon tea and coffee with fresh homemade scones and a fruit platter. Then, enjoy a delicious selection of canapés with a glass of wine, beer, or soft drink in hand as you admire the sunset over the Coral Sea.

    Beautiful catamaran with wonderful friendly staff. Sailing out to Low Island was magic and the snorkelling was fun. Really enjoyed the walking tour on the island the glass bottom boat. Then sailing back to Port Douglas with the sun setting and a glass of wine was just amazing. Best thing we did in Port Douglas. Definitely would recommend it

    Louisa, Ben & Blake were our crew for the day & they were so professional, kind & confident; nothing seemed to onerous for them & they entered into the spirit of making the day memorable for everyone, whatever their swimming ability. On our visit to the Low Isles we saw turtles, little reef sharks, beautiful fish & coral, birds & butterflies. Whilst on the catamaran we were treated to delicious food on the way to our snorkelling & on the way home we had excellent canapés & our choice of beverage to enjoy the sunset. One of my favourite parts of the trip was actually sailing back to Port Douglas & sitting at the front of the cat & enjoying the sea spray. Thank you all for a fabulous experience.

    Everything very well organized. Despite the rebooking to the morning trip - we had originally booked the afternoon trip. The snorkeling tour was great and snorkeling alone was a great experience ... very close encounter with a turtle !!! Lunch was delicious and the crew extremely friendly. Highly recommended! Small negative point: Despite the announcement ADULTS ONLY was a couple with a baby that sometimes screamed
