Full description
Meet at the marina for an afternoon departure on the luxury "Sailaway" catamaran. Upon arrival, delight in freshly-brewed Tropical North Queensland tea or Jaques coffee with a light lunch. Take off for a leisurely 15-kilometre journey to the Low Isles. 

After some slow and smooth cruising, Sailaway will moor in the sheltered blue lagoon for 3 hours. The crew will set you up with complimentary snorkelling equipment and optical masks (and seasonal lycra snorkelling suits and flotation devices if required). Relax on the island, join the guided snorkel tour lead by a marine naturalist, take a trip on the glass-bottom boat, join the guided heritage walk or just laze on deck. The marine biologist will provide in-depth information about the reef and its colorful inhabitants. Cure your curiosity - there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions!

Afterwards, enjoy afternoon tea and coffee with fresh homemade scones and a fruit platter. Then, enjoy a delicious selection of canapés with a glass of wine, beer or soft drink in hand as you admire the sunset over the Coral Sea. The spectacular sunset sail back to port will showcase beautiful views of the Daintree mountains. End the tour back at the Marina at 6:30 PM and continue your evening in the beautiful Port Douglas.

What an enjoyable day! Our skipper and guide were super friendly and easygoing. They were very knowledgable about the reef we visited but didn't overdo the talking like some guides do. The boat was great and we highly recommend taking this midday timeslot as you get both the opportunity to snorkel when its less busy but also can catch the sunset on the cruise home. The small number of passengers was great for us too as it felt more like a one on one experience.

Best day in Port Douglas on a lux catamaran

Great day, we got lucky on only 6 were booked on the trip - felt like we had bought our own catamaran ! Great snorkeling, food and drinks were great and fresh compared to other trips we’ve had where after a day on a boat you get soggy sandwiches. Staff was very attentionate to our needs. Nothing to fault!
