A FAST, FUN EXCITING BOAT RIDE JUST 15 MIN TO THE LOW ISLES REEF! Then one and a half hours of spectacular snorkelling in shallow protected water, followed by the 15 minute boat ride back. All up, this is a 2 and a quarter hour reef trip that will give you half a day to do something else and you won't get sea sick!

This was my girls first time going to snorkel. We choose the reef sprinter 4 as the girls have never been on a fast boat and they absolutely loved it. We spent 1 and 1/2 hours snorkelling around Low Isles and they couldn't get enough....More

The boat trip out was exhilarating and once at the outer reef we had a tremendous 90 minutes snorkelling. Plenty fish and different corals . Great half day adventure.

This half day experience is just perfect for an affordable snorkelling trip, with friendly staff and ideal snorkelling time. Short enough that its not too tiring and only takes up half a day but long enough to see a good amount of the reef at...More

The boat ride, the staff the weather were amazing 😎BUT the reef is so damaged with coral bleaching that the colour scheme is limited to grey, a little blue and a dash of yellow. I would recommend staff to inform customers about the condition of...More

Hi! Thanks for your review. The visibility is affected by strong winds, large tides, rain, clouds and even large passing ships sending in waves. There are plenty of days when the afternoon trip is better than the morning and plenty of days of 15+ meters...More

Perfect quick trip to the Low Isles to enjoy snorkelling on the reef with many different types of fish, turtles etc. Rob & Kate were fantastic, providing an adrenaline rush of a ride (sit further back if you like it calmer). Less travel time more...More

This tour is well run with great gear, nice crew and the bonus of a fast 15 minute ride out to the low isles reef. The reef has suffered damage from recent cyclones and warm summers but still offered up a pretty decent snorkelling experience....More

Chose the cheapest half day tour to Lower Isles. Friendly staff who had excellent knowledge and great personality. Boats are well equipped and felt safe despite rough seas. Snorkelling instruction was short and sweet but enough for novice. A wonderful experience in the water.....lots of...More

Hi we have a min age limit of 5 on the low isles reef tour and 7 years on the outer reef tour due to the hi speed nature of the boats . The quicksilver wave dancer is great for under 5 s .
