Snorkelling in Cape Tribulation

snorkelling and scuba diving day tours to the great barrier reef from cape tribulation
Departing Cape Tribulation for a day of scuba diving and snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef

Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef topped the list when early 2004 a survey was held in the UK and people were asked for their 'five things to do before you die'.
A visit to the Daintree would just simply not be complete without a trip to explore this amazing eco system.
Many (often pretty large) boats run out of Cairns and Port Douglas, but Cape Tribulation has only two small reef tour operators, ensuring a great day and pristine coral.

Out on the Great Barrier Reef you will see schools of brightly colored fish and amazing corals, sting rays, giant clams, sea turtles, and even some harmless small reef sharks. Some days around July and August whales are seen too that pass through the area on their way to breeding grounds.

 

Whale passing Cape Tribulation
Cape Tribulation does not have guaranteed whale spotting like Hervey Bay but during August and September there is a good chance of seeing whales passing by on their annual migration.

Whale migrating through Great Barrier Reef
This whale was spotted during a cruise in September and entertained passengers for quite a while.

Snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef from Cape Tribulation is one of the best tours to do during your Daintree holiday.
Above you see the Ocean Safari, a high speed 12 metre rigid inflatable with two V8 700 horsepower motors that carries only 25 passengers and can take you out to the Great Barrier Reef in only 30 minutes for an unforgettable half day of snorkeling.
If you prefer to take it slower there is also a sailing boat, the Rum Runner, that also does a great snorkelling and scuba diving full day tour at a more relaxed pace.
Out on the reef you will see countless colored fish, sea turtles, giant clams and even some harmless small reef sharks. Dependent on weather conditions and tides you will go to either Undine Reef or Mackay Reef and visit two different sites with at least two hours spent on the reef.
A bus will pick you up from Rainforest Hideaway and take you to the beach where you will board the boat.
