Full description
Join a snorkeling experience in the water around a beautiful, secluded island. Enjoy some time aboard a comfortable and spacious vessel as you travel to the Low Isles with only 23 guests. Relax with plenty of space onboard during the journey and enjoy a light refreshment as you spot the Low Isles in the distance. Explore a picturesque coral bay, snorkel in the calm lagoon or view the reef from the glass bottom boat. The crew will provide tours for guests to learn and appreciate the incredible Great Barrier Reef. Access to the reef is very easy, either from the back of the vessel or from the beach as the reef hugs close to the island. Explore the coral reef and its inhabitants without the crowds. Walk through the sandy paths and through the vegetation. See first hand the historical lighthouse, the lighthouse keeper's home and the Weather Station where local weather data is collected.

    Unfortunately the weather wasn’t as it had been in the days before, but it was a nice overall experience. The guys did a good job explaining the whole thing and we particularly liked the Snorkelling/glass boat/island walk, on which very detailed info was given, not just about what we saw, but the balance between It and everything around it as well. Well done!
