Glass Bottom Boat Tours

We offer the following Glass Bottom Boat tours for our guests. All our vessels have been fitted with jet powered motors to ensure the reduction of environmental impact on the reef and its inhabitants.

Glass Bottom Boat/Guided Snorkelling Tour

The glass bottom boat/guided snorkelling tour is included in the price for overnight and day tour guests. Guests board our custom built vessel for a safety briefing and 20 minutes expert commentary about the coral and marine creatures that can be viewed through the glass enroute to the snorkelling spot. Guests then have the opportunity to snorkel for 30 minutes to discover the wonders of the underwater world and meet the resident marine creatures of Great Barrier Reef. These depart at a range of times daily depending on tides and weather conditions.

Night Glass Bottom Boat

We also offer night glass bottom boat tours subject to numbers, tides and weather conditions. The Night Glass Bottom Boat allows you to discover the Reef at night without getting wet. The Great Barrier Reef comes alive at night, and you are able to experience the coral polyps awake. With our UV lights you can experience a whole different outlook to the Great Barrier Reef.

For your own safety, guests must wear reef walking shoes (with covered toes) or crocs when participating in any of the Glass Bottom Boat/Snorkel tours. We sell reef walking shoes/crocs in the Gift Shop and we have some second hand reef shoes that our guests can borrow, please note that limited sizes are available.
