Step on board our luxurious boat the Turtle Islander at Deeral, just 45 minutes south of Cairns, for a spectacular calm water cruise down the Mulgrave River. Keep an eye out for crocs from the panoramic windows as you sit inside in air-conditioned comfort, or step out onto the shaded outdoor decks for a closer look. From the mouth of the river it’s only 10km to the Frankland Islands.
The Frankland Islands archipelago is a natural wildlife haven and a protected national park. Beautiful Normanby Island is surrounded by pristine sandy beaches, with rock pools and healthy fringing reefs which can be snorkelled from the beach. Here you have up to 4 hours to relax and enjoy, without the crowds.
Your day tour includes guided snorkelling from the beach, with equipment and instruction. For a limited time it also includes our popular adventure snorkel safari, snorkelling from the boat along the island’s western reefs. A boxed lunch, morning and afternoon tea are also included in your tour. After lunch, join our marine biologist and Master Reef guide for a walk around the island, discovering the diverse wildlife that flourishes under the water, in rocky pools and in the rainforest. Choose from a range of optional extras to enhance your day.
Tours depart Deeral at 8.30am and return at 3.30pm. Deeral is an easy 45-minute drive from Cairns – please allow time for the drive and check in at the vessel by 8.15am.
Enjoy outstanding customer service throughout the day, and plenty of time to explore a pristine Great Barrier Reef National Park island.
