Get adventurous! Jump off the boat and snorkel along the Western reef of the island, guided by our marine biologist. These small group tours will enable you to learn more about the Great Barrier Reef. During your snorkel safari you’ll see a vast array of hard and soft coral gardens, complete with giant clams, an abundance of colourful reef fish, and turtles.

The safari is included in our standard day tour price. Transfer Only passengers are welcome to join the safari – $30 charge applies.

Want to SUP the Great Barrier Reef? With Frankland Islands Reef Cruises you can!

Sea-doo underwater scooters are easy to use and lots of fun! They power you through the water allowing you to see more of the reef with little effort. Our guides will provide you with instruction and a lesson, to make sure you get the most of your experience. Get ready to zoom around the reef. 30 minute hire time.



Want to camp on a pristine National Park Island? Frankland Islands Reef Cruises is the only commercial operator with a permit to visit the Frankland Islands, a part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service do permit some camping on the adjacent Russell Island. Camping permits must be obtained through them and we can provide your transfers. Minimum fees apply. Please contact our office for further information and a quotation.
