Reef Trip - Wavedancer - Sail and Snorkel Low Isles - Port Douglas


Set sail for a day of tropical island relaxation! Like a jewel in the Great Barrier Reef, Low Isles is an idyllic, unspoilt coral cay island just one hour's exhilarating sailing across the Coral Sea from Port Douglas. Combined with the romance aboard Quicksilver's luxury 30 metre sailing catamaran, Wavedancer, this is the perfect day for families and couples seeking island relaxation.

From the moment Wavedancer moors in the calm waters of the island's picturesque lagoon, a host of reef activities await. Friendly crew will take you on a leisurely, informative day where island visitor numbers are limited.

Discover the mysteries of marine life while snorkelling or glass bottom boat viewing. Take a guided beach walk and snorkelling tour with a marine biologist or just relax on the beach under a thatched umbrella or on the decks of Wavedancer. Your day also includes a delicious tropical buffet lunch served aboard Wavedancer. A regular shuttle will take you to and from the island throughout the day.

Stunning experience

A wonderful day on a beautiful boat with plenty of seating options. The crew were delightful friendly helpful and caring. The island was perfect and there were activities for every interest . The food wasn't much to write home about but the prawns were delicious.

Great Tour and Crew

We had a wonderful day cruising out to the Lower Isles with our 3 year old son...snorkelling and onboard facilities including team members were very good and we couldn't have asked for more.

Wavedancer to Low Isle

Quiet enjoyable, the food was pretty good however you had to eat on your lap. The marine biologist Tatiana was very informative however one guy fried us in the sun with a massive speech stating the obvious. I think it is too expensive for what it is at the normal price of $195 so was glad I got it cheaper on Book me.
