Day 1: Frankland Islands
Step on board our luxurious boat the Turtle Islander at Deeral, just 45 minutes south of Cairns, for a spectacular calm water cruise down the Mulgrave River. Keep an eye out for crocs from the panoramic windows as you sit inside in air-conditioned comfort, or step out onto the shaded outdoor decks for a closer look. From the mouth of the river it’s only 10km to the Frankland Islands. The Frankland Islands archipelago is a natural wildlife haven and a protected national park. Beautiful Normanby Island is surrounded by pristine sandy beaches, with rock pools and healthy fringing reefs which can be snorkeled from the beach. Here you have up to four hours to relax and enjoy, without the crowds. Your day tour includes guided snorkeling from the beach, with equipment and instruction. It also includes our popular adventure snorkel safari, snorkeling from the boat along the island’s western reefs. A buffet lunch, morning and afternoon tea are also included in your tour. After lunch, join our marine biologist and Master Reef guide for a walk around the island, discovering the diverse wildlife that flourishes under the water, in rocky pools and in the rainforest.
