Ocean Safari Info

Ocean Safari is a great way to experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef by snorkelling two pristine reef locations off the Daintree Coast of Cape Tribulation, in just half a day.

This half day eco certified tour departs Cape Tribulation daily and allows for a minimum of two hours to explore this precious underwater world!

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.
