Reef and Rainforest Daintree Dreaming Tour

Join us on this two-day reef and rainforest package!  It is beautiful to experience the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest.

Day 1
Port Douglas Great Barrier Reef Tour

When visiting Port Douglas, the Great Barrier Reef will undoubtedly be high on your list of things to see and do.  Our Port Douglas Great Barrier Reef Tour is the perfect scuba diving and snorkelling day.  This tour takes you to the outer edge of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef!

On your Port Douglas Great Barrier Reef cruise, you have the choice to snorkel and (certified) scuba dive at three sites on Agincourt Reef.  Part of the world-famous Ribbon Reefs, Agincourt Reef, is on the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef.

Meet The Locals!

Scuba diving or snorkelling at Agincourt Reef will allow you to come face to face with reef sharks, barracuda, turtles, Parrotfish and Cuttlefish.

From May to September, the Port Douglas Great Reef Tour has a special permit allowing passengers to swim with the Dwarf Minke Whales if encountered.  Also, the humpback whales are migrating to the Great Barrier Reef at this time of the year.
