Tour Operator: Quicksilver Cruises
After your early morning ballooning experience, you’re set to continue your day to the idyllic Low Isles, one hour’s exhilarating sailing from Port Douglas. Set like a jewel in the Great Barrier Reef, Low Isles is an unspoilt, uninhabited coral cay island – a tropical island paradise. Combined with the romance of sailing aboard Quicksilver’s luxury 30 metre sailing catamaran, Wavedancer, this is the perfect day for families and couples seeking island relaxation.
From the moment Wavedancer moors in the calm waters of the island’s picturesque lagoon, a host of reef activities await. Our friendly crew will take you on a leisurely, informative day where island visitor numbers are limited.
Discover the mysteries of marine life while snorkelling or glass bottom boat viewing. Take a guided beach walk and snorkelling tour with a marine biologist or just relax on the beach under a thatched umbrella or on the decks of Wavedancer. Your day also includes a delicious tropical buffet lunch served onboard Wavedancer.
