Owner description: 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.

We went on a half day afternoon tpur with Brooke and Glen. They were both AMAZING! I went on another snorkelling tour on a similar boat in port douglas 2 days prior, and it doesn't even compare. Brooke and Glen were so knowledgeable, helpful, funny and kind. They have cool tunes on the boat ride and give you lesson about the environment, coral, fish and Cape Tribulation. The water was so clear and we saw 3 turtles, stingrays and giant clams (didn't see any of this at Lowe Isles and the water was very cloudly there). If you have to choose between port douglas or cape tribulation, definitely choose cape tribulation with ocean safari. Thanks Brooke and Glen!

Absolutely loved my trip out with Glen & Georgia on Sunday, despite the choppy conditions when we first stopped off, the guys ensured we still had a memorable and safe experience - ensuring we all felt safe despite the rough conditions on the day. The second snorkel was incredible, the water was a lot less choppy, seeing the fish and turtles in their natural habitat was out of this world and an experience I will never forget.. I highly recommend going with Ocean Safari for your reef experience. From the check in process, to the boat journey over to the reef to the snorkelling, was all in an amazing day! Would highly recommend. Glen and Georgia keep up the great work!!
