Overview

Ocean Safari offers an exhilarating ride to snorkel the pristine untouched Great Barrier Reef off the Daintree Coast at Cape Tribulation. This half day eco tour visits two different snorkel destinations, each with an extraordinary array of marine life and coral species.The tour begins at Cape Tribulation beach where guests board the vessel bound for the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. After an exhilarating fast ride of approximately 25 minutes guests are ready to snorkel two fabulous locations at Mackay and Undine Reefs. On most days the rainforest can be seen along the mainland beach whilst snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, home to an abundance of marine life as well as beautiful hard and soft corals.The Ocean Safari vessel takes a maximum of 25 passengers allowing guests to experience tropical paradise and the pleasure of a small group. The vessel is based on the original design of a rescue craft and is a rigid inflatable boat driven by 700hp engines. The experienced Skipper and Eco Host ensure the trip is filled with fun and appreciation of the Great Barrier Reef and the coastal rainforest of the Daintree, two world heritage areas side by side. Magical memories like these sometimes only happen once in a lifetime. The Ocean Safari check in office is at the Turtle Rock Cafe and Safari Lodge, Cape Tribulation Road and a courtesy bus pick up from Cape Tribulation accommodation is included. Ocean Safari has Advanced Eco Accreditation.

the boatride out to the snorkeling spots is a 30 mins fun rollercoaster ride with music blasting! First spot will be a good warm-up and the colours of the reef/fish are amazing. 2nd spot is just 5 mins away, enough to have a quick rest...More

Among the best snorkeling outings I’ve experienced. We saw many and varied exotic, beautiful fish, a couple of turtles, and more giant clams than I knew existed in all the world’s seas. I especially liked the clams that were still sort of embedded in large,...More

This quick trip out to the reef was excellent. We were the only boat at the location, and there were only 21 people on the boat (max. 25) which means we had our own little atoll to this small group. The crew were extremely laid...More

The girls running this trip were excellent: knowledgeable, professional and very welcoming. Everything run like clockwork and had the best Great Barrier Reef from our three weeks trip. The price is also very reasonable 10 out of 10! Don't miss it! :-)
