DescriptionYour tropical island adventure begins with pickup from Cairns and the northern beaches in an air-conditioned bus and travels south through UNESCO World Heritage Listed rainforest mountains and fields of sugar cane. Hop off the bus and onto a luxury boat and enjoy a leisurely 30-minute cruise down the colorful Mulgrave River. Soak up the beauty of the surrounding rainforest-clad hills from the cabin or shaded deck and admire the panoramic views. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for crocodiles along the mangrove’s edge! After a short open water crossing, arrive at Frankland Islands National Park, your tropical destination for the day. A secluded and ancient marine environment, the Frankland Islands are home to thousands of plants and animals species, all waiting to be discovered. Spend 4.5 hours relaxing and exploring this secluded part of the Great Barrier Reef, that sees no more than 100 visitors each day. Snorkel straight from the pristine white sandy beach, where an expert marine naturalist guides you over colorful corals and tropical fish while explaining this unique and wonderful ecosystem. On the island, take part in our guided island walk, led by a resident Master Reef Guide or Marine Biologist, showcasing the amazing diversity of this protected national park. Across the day, choose from an array of optional activities such as the adventure snorkel safari, semi-submersible or glass bottom boat tour, scuba diving, stand up paddle boarding, sea kayaking, or even an underwater scooter. Included in the tour is a delicious buffet lunch served on the island with a choice of local fresh prawns, salad, chicken, ham, cheese, bread and an abundance of fresh tropical fruit. The boat departs the island in the afternoon and there’s coffee, tea, and cake on board to enjoy while you sail back to Cairns.
