All about the Ocean Safari Half Day Great Barrier Reef Tour
Ocean Safari Half Day Great Barrier Reef Tour Itinerary - 1 days
Great Barrier Reef
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 check-in office is the Turtle Rock Cafe, Cape Tribulation Road, and a courtesy bus pick up from Cape Tribulation accommodation is included. Ocean Safari has Advanced Eco Accreditation.
The Ocean Safari vessel takes a maximum of 25 passengers allowing guests to experience tropical paradise and the pleasure of a small group. The vessel is based on the original design of a rescue craft and is a rigid inflatable boat driven by 700hp engines.
Spend two hours snorkeling the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef in two different locations showcasing the incredible diversity and abundance of the fish, turtles, coral and marine life. On your way back, enjoy the spectacular coast of dense green rainforest running along a white sandy beach lapped by the turquoise ocean.
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.
