Low Isles Great Barrier Reef Cruise
Low Isles is a historic part of The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Named by Captain Cook in 1770, the cays were the site of the first extensive scientific study of a coral reef anywhere in the world in 1928, and their landmark lighthouse has greeted visitors since 1878.
Low Isles and its historic lighthouse were registered on the Commonwealth Heritage List in June 2008 in recognition of their place in Australia's cultural and Indigenous heritage. Relax - the whole of this beautiful, palm fringed island beach is yours to explore and enjoy.
Our 30 metre luxury sailing catamaran, Wavedancer, offers the excitement of big ship sailing combined with the ultimate in comfort. Let our crew pamper you in the luxurious air-conditioned lounge with its fully licensed bar, or soak up the sun and sea air under the sails on our expansive deck.
Beach Walk with a Marine Biologist
A Marine Biologist conducts a guided beach walk, showing the unique marine life living at the waters edge. Included is information on the flora and fauna inhabiting the island along with the history of Low Isles. The Biologists also offer a guided tour through a "Heritage Walk" which outlines human use of the island, past and present.
Snorkelling - A Guided Expedition
Snorkelling is a ton of fun and a brilliant way to view this watery wonderland. All equipment is provided and our friendly snorkelling supervisor is on hand to give you a few tips, or take the opportunity to join organised snorkel expeditions and view the creatures of the reef under the guidance of a Marine Biologist.
Meeting the Locals
Coral viewing is so easy with a glass bottom boat tour. The coral viewing boat leaves the island regularly and cruises over the delicate soft coral gardens that surround Low Isles. A commentary is conducted to point out the corals, the many brightly coloured tropical fish and magnificent giant clams. Look for Nemo and his friendly turtles.
