Join us on a river and reef journey to The Great Barrier Reef’s tropical Frankland Islands.

The Frankland Island day tour will take you to the archipelago of Frankland Islands, which is located 10km offshore, around 45km south east of Cairns.

The day will begin with a complimentary pick-up from your Cairns accommodation. Head south for about an hour to meet your boat, the Turtle Islander, at the township of Deeral.
Then you’ll take a 30 minute boat down the Mulgrave River, which is bordered with rainforest and mangroves.

Then, the shortest of any Great Barrier Reef day cruise, a fast crossing to Frankland Islands. The island of Normandy is bordered by sandy beaches and reefs where you may snorkel right from the shore.

You have up to 4 hours to relax and explore here.

Snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding.
Savour a freshly prepared tropical lunch.
Mini Submarine
Finish the day by spotting crocs from the boat on the way home.

Adventure Snorkel Safari

We take you by boat to the western side of Frankland island for our adventure snorkel safari. Dive into the sea and drift snorkel your way back to the beach. Along the journey, you’ll come across coral gardens teeming with hard and soft corals, enormous clams, and a variety of colourful fish.

Our snorkel guides will be with you the entire time, pointing out the highlights of our gorgeous reefs and ensuring your safety at all times.
