Cape Tribulation Ocean Safari Tour

1. Cape Tribulation Ocean Safari Tour

An exhilarating ride to snorkel the pristine untouched Great Barrier Reef off the Daintree Coast at Cape Tribulation. This half-day eco-tour visits two different snorkel destinations, each with an extraordinary array of marine life and coral species. The tour begins at Cape Tribulation beach where guests board the vessel bound for the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. The Ocean Safari vessel takes a maximum of 25 passengers allowing guests to experience tropical paradise and the pleasure of a small group. After a fast 25-minute ride, guests are ready to snorkel two fabulous locations at Mackay Reef. On most days, the rainforest can be seen along the mainland beach whilst snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef 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. The vessel is based on the original design of a rescue craft and is a rigid inflatable boat driven by 700hp engines. The experienced Skipper and Eco Host ensure the trip is filled with fun and appreciation of the Great Barrier Reef and the coastal rainforest of the Daintree, two world heritage areas side by side. Magical memories like these sometimes only happen once in a lifetime.

From the start of the tour, I felt welcome and comfortable. Brooke and David our Skipper were absolutely AWESOME! We had a blast visiting the reef from Cape Trib- if you’re thinking you’ve seen it before, it’s definitely worth doing this trip… because it’s completely different seeing the reef feom Cape Trib than it is from other areas. I particularly enjoyed how unique this tour was from other ones we have done and we thoroughly enjoyed our day!

A very well run snorkelling activity for all the family to enjoy. The guides really know all the different types of marine life and coral well and happily answer questions and tell us about it all during the course of the trip. Dave the boat driver is a real crack up. Highly recommend.

Fantastic experience visited three reefs amazing snorkeling. A rest step on an island beach with the waters so blue and clear.

Everything was super nice and of course the Reef is amazing!

Friendly accommodating guides made the day extra special
