A FAST, FUN EXCITING BOAT RIDE JUST 15 MIN TO THE LOW ISLES REEF! Then one and a half hours of spectacular snorkelling in shallow protected water, followed by the 15 minute boat ride back. All up, this is a 2 and a quarter hour reef trip that will give you half a day to do something else and you won't get sea sick!

The barrier reef has been at the top of my bucket list for a very long time and after 56 years I eventually managed to get there and what a trip. From the moment we stepped on board the boat the trip was perfect. Boat seemed to be brand new and the staff both in the office and on the... More

Everyone should do this tour if you're at the reef! The guides are amazing and make the experience even better! Being in a small group made it feel like we had the whole reef to ourselves! Couldn't recommend this tour enough!!!!!

The family went on a 2 1/4 hour low isles reef snorkel. Was excellent with young children cause it was a quick trip to the reef and back and about hour and half snorkelling which is plenty for young kids. The crew were friendly and helpful and we all had a fabulous time. Saw plenty of marine life and even... More

Amazing trips with Reef Sprinter. We visited Lower Isle first. It was a great 'starter' trip to see how the kids (9 & 11) would hold up. It was perfect. No wasted time on a boat. Only 15 minutes to the reef -- 90 minutes in the water -- 15 minutes back to the dock. No sea sickness and the... More

We took our first trip to the lower Isle and had such a great time we went back 3 days later to snorkel the outer reef.

We went on the 2.5 hour snorkeling tour to the Low Isles from Port Douglas. It was such an awesome way to snorkel the reef without having to book a whole day with the other companies. The boat was comfortable and fast and the tour guided very professionally. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to see the reef on limited... More

I did this trip with my son-in-law, as the rest of the family don't snorkel and aren't fond of boats of any description. I'm not a strong swimmer myself and this was a rough day to be out on the ocean. I think we got airborne a couple of times, but it was great fun and really fast - Low... More

We were nervous about being sea sick and chose this company as it offered a 15 minute speed boat trip. Service was excellent from the start. As a novice snorkeller I really appreciated the help and support offered which made me confident to strike out on my own. Staff well informed, friendly and helpful and concerned to ensure our safety.... More

We did both the Low Isles snorkeling trip and the Outer Reefs! Fulfilled some of our childhood dreams of snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. Great service, super fast speedboats get you out to the reef quicker, and let you have the rest of the half of the day to explore Port Douglas or relax! Low Isles was closer, water... More

Great, fast, fun boat ride out to the Low Isles. Staff were really friendly, helpful and informative. I was a bit hesitant given I was a beginner but the staff made me feel right at ease with no pressure. We had a wonderful experience. I would suggest this would be a good place to start for those who have not... More
