    Wavedancer Low Isles Cruise
    Stop: 4 hours -
    Situated nine miles (15 kilometers) north-east of Port Douglas, Low Isles is a coral cay surrounded by 55 acres of reef. The sandy beach and clear, calm lagoon waters are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. Low Isles is well-known for its population of green turtles, keep an eye on the surface as they regularly pop up for air. Occasionally dugongs can be seen grazing on sea grass and large rays may glide by. During the cruise, a Marine Biologist will conduct an informative talk on the fish and corals and provide details on the activities available throughout the day. The 30-meter luxury sailing catamaran offers the excitement of big ship sailing combined with the ultimate in comfort. Relax in the luxurious air-conditioned lounge with fully licensed bar, or soak up the sun under the sails on the expansive deck. On arrival a shuttle will take you from the boat to the island, or you can dive straight in and swim to the beach! Join an organized snorkel tour led by a marine biologist, or take to the water independently and explore at your leisure. Snorkeling equipment is provided and the friendly crew are on hand to assist.You don't have to get wet to enjoy a day at Low Isles. You can join a glass bottom boat tour over the soft coral gardens that surround Low Isles. Your guide will point out giant clams, a variety of fish and corals, and of course be on the lookout for turtles. On land you may like to join a guided beach walk around the small island. Learn about the flora and fauna of the island along with the history of Low Isles as an important place of marine research. We recommend you book this reef trip on your first full available day. You then have the opportunity to be flexible and change your travel date if you wish. Your booking can be changed at no additional cost directly with the operator once you are in Cairns. Prebook and secure your booking, but relax in knowing you can make amendments at no charge.

We were with a tour group of 27 people from the USA. A large bus picked us up at our hotel in Cairns and then drove to Port Douglas. We saw large termite nests on the side of the road. Unfortunately the tape program about our sailing trip didn't work. We were lucky that there

Visited here 30years ago with simialar trip. Too many rules and regulations now, you are wrapped up in cotton wool and herded like sheep. Reef has deteriated and very few fish. A bit dissapointed.

We had a great time going to LowIsles. Really can’t fault anything on Wavedancer. Staff was very good and helpful. We all felt very safe in the water with lifeguards patrolling constantly. Just watch for the tide times as you can’t swim over the coral at low tide.
