Tour Description


The day begins with a leisurely cruise down the magnificent Mulgrave River. Learn about the area’s unique flora and fauna while taking in the beauty of the surrounding rainforest clad hills. At the mouth of the river, the Frankland Islands slowly come into view and it is only a short open water crossing to our destination for the day.



Frankland Islands is the perfect location for snorkelers to drift over the amazing variety of corals and marine life that inhabit the area, including fish, sea turtles and octopus.



The guided snorkelling tour offers a chance to discover and interact with the reef under the guidance of the marine naturalists. Equipment is provided, as is the tuition to get you comfortably using your mask, fins, and snorkel.



Alternatively, stay dry and discover this underwater paradise with an optional coral viewing tour from one of our semi-submersible or glass bottom boat. A highlight unique to Frankland Islands is your optional guided “Island Discovery walk” - join our marine naturalists for an informative and fascinating exploration of the island's forest, sandy beaches and the reef's nursery - the rock pools.



Take advantage of our Optional Beach activities such as our clear Sea Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard hire to explore the island (optional extra cost).



Divers are able to discover the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef with a certified or introductory dive (optional extra).



A tropical buffet lunch is served on the island and the menu is catered by a local organisation, providing a choice of several salads, chicken, cheese, ham, prawns and an abundance of cut fruits.



The day is yours to enjoy as you wish. Snorkel, paddle, swim, discover and simply relax on the pristine white beach and enjoy the serenity and beauty of the island paradise.



At 2.30pm, it is time to depart the island and transfer passengers back to main vessel. Afternoon tea of cake is served enroute before arriving back to Cairns at approx 5.00pm.
