Full description
Climb aboard Quicksilver’s luxury 30-metre (99-foot) Wavedancer sailing catamaran and sail to the idyllic Great Barrier Reef island of Low Isles. Enjoy a relaxing day out for families and couples in a tropical island paradise ambiance.

Set like a jewel in the Great Barrier Reef, Low Isles is an unspoilt coral cay island, and from the moment you moor in the calm waters of a picturesque lagoon, a host of reef activities awaits.

Once at Low Isles, they will take you on a snorkel tour to view the various colorful creatures of the reef. Alternatively, see turtles and many brightly colored tropical fish from a glass bottomed boat.

Back on the beach, join a marine biologist guided beach walk to discover the unique marine life living at the water’s edge. Then relax and tuck in to a delicious tropical buffet lunch.
