Mossman River Drift Snorkelling from Port Douglas or Mossman
From US$ 72.30
Overview
Allow yourself to drift with the current on the Mossman River on this snorkeling excursion from Mossman or Port Douglas. With provided snorkel gear and a wet suit, watch freshwater fish and turtles in their natural environment, enjoying the feeling of weightlessness as you travel. Perfect for first-time snorkelers, this laid-back activity even accommodates small children, who can drift on river rafts.
What to Expect

Enjoy complimentary pickup from your Port Douglas or Mossman accomodation.  A short drive north through historic sugar cane fields will see you arrive at the Mossman River; where your river trained guide will help you get fitted out with a wetsuit, boots and a snorkel mask.

It’s now time to explore the crystal-clear waters of this beautiful rainforest river.  Keep an eye out for turtles and the elusive platypus that calls this river home.  More than 30 species of fish live in this river, so you are sure to spot more than a few…  Lizards, Butterflies & Rainforest birds are also frequently spotted on this river adventure.

After an unforgettable time drifting under the rainforest canopy, it’s time to dry off. 

A short drive back south will see you arrive back at your accommodation.
