Small groups on our own boat, professional service and equipment for you / your family / friends to explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Memories to last a lifetime.
It’s time to get excited. A snorkel trip to the Great Barrier Reef should be memorable for all the right reasons, and it will be with ABC Snorkel Charters Port Douglas. Our sites offer all the heart could desire – simply spectacular coral gardens and bommies, exciting drift snorkels along pristine coral and fan walls and an abundance of big and small reef creatures.
We deliberately avoid setting a firm daily schedule, ensuring wildlife acts naturally and doesn’t begin shying from busy spots so the surprise, “big ticket” sightings are frequent and the amazing biodiversity of our sites remains intact.
ABC Snorkel Charters Port Douglas is a truly low impact operation. Our footprint is tiny compared to the usual boats that take people to the reef. ABC the only way to go!
