All inclusive pricing (No extras or upsells charged or offered on-board) prices shown are in Australian dollars.

Port Douglas Day Boat Diving and Snorkelling Tours

Outer Reef Snorkeling - ‘Take a snorkel on the wild side’ - Adventure Snorkeling$399.00
Description

The price is high but so is the experience! As we only take a handful of people to the reef, remember you are paying for one of our limited numbers of seats aboard or own exclusive dive/snorkel vessel for a unique outer Great Barrier Reef adventure!

‘Take a snorkel on the wild side’ – Adventure Snorkeling

Our adventure snorkel 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!

Our totally unique operation in Port Douglas makes us the snorkelers choice as we take so few clients aboard per trip ensuring you’ll enjoy a very exclusive day. Our trips will take us to the outer reef where our special Great Barrier Reef Marine Park permit allows us to roam the reefs freely and be away from other tourists and crowded reef locations. We deliberately avoid setting a firm daily schedule and frequently change our snorkel locations, ensuring the wildlife acts naturally and doesn’t begin shying from busy spots, so the surprise “big ticket” sightings are frequent and amazing.

If one person dives and the other snorkels, this is no problem for Abc! We relish this combination and often you can dive snorkel together, as you will see by our combination of diver and snorkeler in our underwater photographs.

Includes

Included is all equipment (including wetsuits), free professional photographs of your day, lunch/snacks, drinks/tea/coffee.

As an added bonus, all snorkeling customers receive free electronic copies of underwater photographs taken of them during their snorkeling adventure. Why? ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas love to see the smile on your face as you witness the wonders of the reef. Personal photos create the perfect souvenir of your stay.

You could 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 life on the reef.

Notes

This is not a “hold your hand day” or suitable for people who are not comfortable in the open ocean. If you are not confident in the water then we would suggest you go with one of the larger reef operators who cater for people who require life jackets and buoyancy aids.
