Snorkel sites

This half day eco tour visits two snorkel sites including Mackay Reef and Mackay Cay, each with an extraordinary array of marine life and coral species. Often the coastal rainforest of the Daintree can be seen along the mainland beach whilst snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, two world heritage areas side by side.

On most days, you can snorkel alongside sea turtles, which are found in abundance swimming over reefs full of colourful coral, along with myriads of tropical fish, eagle rays, giant clams and starfish.  Magical memories like these sometimes only happen once in a lifetime.

Please note, itineraries and snorkel sites may vary day to day depending on weather and tides.
