Why we Love Ocean Safari 

Take an exhilarating ride to the beautiful outer Great Barrier Reef from the stunning and unique UNESCO World Heritage Listed Daintree Coast at Cape Tribulation.

The half day Great Barrier Reef tour visits two different snorkel destinations, each with an extraordinary array of marine life and coral species.

After a fast 25 minute ride, you are ready to snorkel two fabulous locations at Mackay and Undine Reefs.

Your cruise will include the following highlights;

  • Spend 2 hours snorkelling on the Outer Great Barrier Reef
  • Visit 2 Exclusive Reef sites at Mackey & Undine Reefs
  • Marine Life Encounters
  • Depart from Cape Tribulation Beach in the Daintree NP
  • Exhilarating Jet Boat Ride
  • Visit two reef sites, Mackay and Undine Reefs
  • 2 hours exploring the underwater world and swimming with turtles
  • All snorkelling equipment
  • Personalised snorkel instruction
  • Reef interpretation and eco presentations
  • Courtesy bus transfers


Check-in at the Turtle Rock Cafe in the heart of Cape Tribulation.

Grab a coffee or even some breakfast before a reef interpretation and stroll 400m through the beautiful forest to the beach where we meet our boat.

Your Safari vessel is based on the original design of a rescue craft and is a rigid inflatable boat driven by 700hp engines, enabling it to race out to our first reef destination in only 25 minutes. 

We spend two hours snorkelling our two reef locations enjoying some once in a lifetime marine encounters and beautiful coral viewing. 

We return to the amazing backdrop of the oldest existing rainforest in the world, the Daintree, enjoying some fast and furious fun with our super speedy vessel.
