Overview

Ocean Safari offers an exhilarating ride to snorkel the pristine untouched Great Barrier Reef off the Daintree Coast at Cape Tribulation. This half day eco tour visits two different snorkel destinations, each with an extraordinary array of marine life and coral species.The tour begins at Cape Tribulation beach where guests board the vessel bound for the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. After an exhilarating fast ride of approximately 25 minutes guests are ready to snorkel two fabulous locations at Mackay and Undine Reefs. On most days the rainforest can be seen along the mainland beach whilst snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, home to an abundance of marine life as well as beautiful hard and soft corals.The Ocean Safari vessel takes a maximum of 25 passengers allowing guests to experience tropical paradise and the pleasure of a small group. 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. Magical memories like these sometimes only happen once in a lifetime. The Ocean Safari check in office is at the Turtle Rock Cafe and Safari Lodge, Cape Tribulation Road and a courtesy bus pick up from Cape Tribulation accommodation is included. Ocean Safari has Advanced Eco Accreditation.

Best way to see the reef - no crowds and there in 25 mins. We were promised turtles and they were there to greet us on arrival. The ride was great fun and the kids loved it.

Excellent trip. Adam and Sarah looked after us very well. They were professional, safety conscious and lots of fun. They went out of their way to cater to everyone's requirements and give their customers a memorable Aussie adventure. Loved the trip home, riding the waves.

perfect reef trip for teens, a fun ride and enough time on the reef to keep them occupied. Swimming with the sea turtles was a big hit with the whole family

Our family with 2 boys aged 8 and 10 had a great trip. Amazing to snorkel with turtles and additional bonus for the boys was the crazy fun jet boat ride home.

Adam & Sarah provided a great experience. My 10 year old son was unsure about snorkelling, until Sarah took him under her wing and supported him fully in the water. So glad we chose Ocean Safari for small group personalised service.
