Tour Description


Featuring large deck spaces, a stylish saloon and spectacularly large sails, Aquarius provides a unique reef experience from Port Douglas. Your vessel is bound for Horseshoe Bay, a stunning site on Tongue Reef, approximately two hours from Port Douglas.



Once at the destination, view the remarkable underwater world by snorkelling from the back of the vessel. Explore coral gardens and an abundance of marine life while floating effortlessly on the water's surface. For non-swimmers, a coral viewing boat will provide guests with the opportunity to see the coral reef while keeping dry.



The experienced crew will guide guests in the water and out, provide interesting facts about the Great Barrier Reef and serve an array of delicious food throughout the day.



With only small groups (max 30), Aquarius is a dedicated snorkel only vessel, offering a personalised experience to Tongue Reef on the outer Great Barrier Reef.



Relax on the spacious upper deck between snorkelling opportunities and enjoy the delicious buffet lunch, as well as the freshly made cakes provided for morning and afternoon tea.



Aquarius Port Douglas crew provide supervision and tuition as well as a comprehensive safety brief at the start of each day. Flotation devices are provided for snorkelling from the platform of Aquarius. A coral viewing boat is available for non-swimmers.
