Port Douglas Reef Snorkel Boats

We have two versatile reef vessels. Both have a shallow draft, enabling them to access pristine, Great Barrier Reef snorkelling sites.

We limit passenger numbers to just 12 people, per trip. This provides our guests with maximum space on the boat and a personalised experience on the Reef. Both of our boats are berthed in Port Douglas.

Our boats have all the amenities needed for a comfortable day on the Great Barrier Reef. Shaded interior and exterior seating. Warm shower and onboard toilet. Stairs which lower into the water, for easy access and egress from the Reef.

Our boats provide a stable ride to the Reef and are fully equipped with the latest snorkel and safety equipment.


JUST 12 people per boat, per day

ABC Snorkel Charters evolved from Jay Wink’s private Port Douglas Dive Guide Services. After his own personal working experience of the mass marketing of tourism boats in Cairns and Port Douglas, Jay wanted to offer a uniquely, more personal alternative to these prevailing large tour boat operations. This fundamental desire for setting up a small, in fact a tiny, boutique reef operation in Port Douglas. We are proud to be able to take and guide just a tiny group of snorkelers to the outer Great Barrier Reef. When you choose ABC for your snorkel day tour on the outer Great Barrier Reef or Low Isles, a member of our team will be in the water with you, making sure you don’t miss a thing.


Licensed to carry 25 passengers, but we limit it to just 12, for maximum comfort and experience on your day at the Reef.
