Wavedancer Low Isles day trip

Escape to paradise and explore the natural beauty of the Low Isles with Quicksilver's Wavedancer

Located just an hour's sail off the coast of Port Douglas are the Low Isles, two small coral cays separated by the Low Isles Reef. Woody Island is uninhabited except for a large bird population, while Low Island has a historic lighthouse that has been operating since 1878. Spend your day exploring this beautiful island.

Although scuba diving isn't available, the corals close to the beach are easily accessible for snorkeling, making it a great family day out on the Great Barrier Reef. Low Isles is also a major habitat for green sea turtles.

Getting there is half the fun aboard Quicksilver's 30m luxury sailing catamaran, Wavedancer. Relax in the air-conditioned lounge with a licensed bar, or soak up the sun and sea air under the sails on the expansive foredeck. All activities are included, such as glass-bottom boat viewing and marine biologist-guided snorkel and island tours.

Wavedancer's sailing day has a gentle footprint and is Advanced Ecotourism and Climate Action Certified. Don't miss this chance to explore the Low Isles and the Great Barrier Reef in style!
