    Frankland Islands Cruise and Dive
    Stop: 8 hours - Admission included
    Discover one of Tropical North Queensland’s best-kept secrets! Hosting vibrant fringing reefs, rock pools, white sandy beaches and dense rainforest, Frankland Islands are a pristine archipelago that are not to be missed. Escape the crowds that takes in the incredible sights of the Reef, Rainforest and River. Hop onto a luxury boat that will take you on a 30-minute leisurely cruise down the Mulgrave River. A short open water crossing will take you to your tropical island destination for the day. You’ll have 4.5 hours to relax and explore this secluded part of the Great Barrier Reef that sees no more than 30 visitors each day. Snorkel straight from the pristine white sandy beach, where an expert marine naturalist will guide you over colourful corals and tropical fish, explaining this unique and wonderful ecosystem. This guided tour is included for all travellers. Included in your tour is a pre-packed picnic lunch served on the island. Enjoy coffee/tea on board our air-conditioned vessel.

This trip was definitely the best trip on our Australian vacation. The crew was amazing. The lunch was delicious. And Conor is the most skilled and fantastic photographer. We had such a wonderful time. We booked a second trip to go snorkeling in another location after our trip

Boat is a pleasant bus ride (30 minutes from town) Very scenic ride and worth the effort to distance one's self from the abundance of tour ships in the main harbor. The crew has the process down pat- very well organized and terrific team interaction. Did not see another reef

Had a great time visiting Normanby Island back in December. The island is amazing - it felt very isolated and pristine compared to more frequented locations. The snorkeling was very good as well. Don't miss the island walking tour in the afternoon. Our marine biologist
