Tiny group size – Adventure Snorkeling on The Outer Reef off Port Douglas

Amazing guided adventure snorkeling with just 5 Snorkellers per instructor guide.

The ABC difference – We are not just a taxi ride to the Great Barrier Reef we actually guide you on all of the 3 sites in a intimate group size where you can hear what your guide is talking about.

‘Take a snorkel on the wild side’

The smallest groups and the only boat in Port Douglas that guides just a maximum of 5 snorkelers per guide on all of our 3 outer reef locations –  This makes ABC Dive & Snorkel Port Douglas the best choice for snorkellers and therefor offering a totally unique day on the outer Great Barrier Reef.

Just a sample of what you could see snorkeling with Abc

Our small unique operation in Port Douglas makes us the most personal day boat visiting the outer reef taking a maximum of just 12 passengers on board per trip, ensuring you’ll enjoy a very exclusive day. Our trip can take us to several outer reef locations where our very special Great Barrier Reef marine parks permit allows us to roam the reefs freely and be away from other tourists and crowded reef locations.  We have no fixed daily schedule or agenda and often visit many locations in a day. We deliberately avoid setting a firm daily schedule and frequently change our snorkel locations, ensuring the wildlife acts naturally and does not begin shying from busy reef spots, so the surprise “big ticket” sightings are frequent and amazing.

NB: If you are visiting between May and September, you might be lucky and get a close encounter with a Dwarf Minke or Humpback Whale who travel through these waters this time of the year during their annual migration.

ABC Dive & Snorkel Port Douglas are a small family business

At ABC, the day starts and ends with our trip. We don’t own multiple boats, we are not owned by a multi national and we don’t have a human resources department. We have always been, and remain, a small dedicated operator focused on providing you with exceptional customer service and a fun day. Our hand picked staff are our most valuable resource and they work hard to ensure that your day on the Great Barrier Reef is a special part of your holiday.

Our guided snorkel adventure days are an exciting opportunity for people wanting to experience the unique feeling of snorkeling 20-30 miles off shore in some remote locations and getting face to face with elusive marine creatures for the first time!

The Great Barrier Reef is home to an abundant array of marine life. Snorkelers regularly see a range of fish including anemone-fish (Nemo), giant Maori Wrasse, butterfly-fish, angelfish and more. With the help of your ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas snorkel guide, you won’t miss any of the highlights.

You will be snorkeling with a marine biologist or naturalist who is a local, has many years of experience in these waters and will be able to identify the marine life you are looking at and will explain to you about the diversity of  the life on the reef.

Intimate adventure

Such a relaxed, intimate, and adventurous trip. This was my first guided snorkel and I don’t know how I’d go with a larger group now that I’ve been spoiled with such a small tour! The snorkel guide was really informative, went out of his way to find things and point them out to us, and had such a great eye for the local sea life. Swimming up close with the Maori Wrasse was a completely magical experience for me – I was so present that I can’t remember much more than how he felt! What a cool guy. Thanks for creating such a magical and yet low-key experience!
