with our friendly, professional crew
Your tropical island adventure begins with a scenic 30 minute cruise down the beautiful Mulgrave River, lined by rainforest and mangroves. From the river’s mouth it’s a quick crossing to Frankland Islands – the shortest of any Great Barrier Reef day tour.
Complimentary coach transfers from Cairns to our departure point at Deeral are included in your fare.
The pristine Frankland Islands are a place of exceptional natural beauty. From their fringing reefs and rock pools, to their white sandy beaches, lined with pandanus and other native species, and shaded green interior. Join our marine biologist and Master Reef Guide for an informative and fascinating exploration of the island.
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.
FREE (for a limited time)
Little pirates of all ages will enjoy a guided hunt around the island in search of buried treasure. Follow the clues as you explore the island and learn about some of its unique natural features. A great activity for the whole family!

Two-seater kayaks are available for hire during the day. Glide along over the clear tropical waters enjoying amazing views over the corals, fish and marine life below. 30 minutes hire time (free for day tour passengers).
Frankland Islands Reef Cruises also has a range of special equipment available for hire during your day tour. This includes snorkelling equipment for Transfer Only passengers ($20), prescription masks ($15) and wetsuits ($15). These can be booked and paid for, on the boat, on the day of travel.
