Frankland Islands Reef Cruises is an exclusive Cairns Great Barrier Reef day tour. It commences with a rainforest river cruise, followed by the shortest open water crossing of any of the Cairns day tour boats, to put you right on the Great Barrier Reef. The destination is the Frankland Islands, a cluster of pristine National Park islands, surrounded by vibrant fringing reefs home to turtles, octopus and many species of marine life, including the ever-popular anemone clownfish, Nemo. You have up to 4.5 hours to explore and enjoy this natural paradise, above and below the water.
A guided snorkel tour and all snorkeling equipment and instruction is included in your tour price, as is a tropical buffet lunch, morning and afternoon tea. Optional activities include an Adventure snorkel safari, Semi-submersible or Glass bottom boat tour, Guided island walk and Introductory or Certified scuba diving. Clear kayaks and Stand up paddle boards as well as Sea-doo scooters are available for hire. Frankland Island Reef Cruises is the only tour operator with a permit to visit these pristine, uninhabited islands, so there’s no crowds and plenty of space and time to maximise your Great Barrier Reef experience.
