Private Charter – The Low Isles is a stunning Great Barrier Reef coral cay, sitting just 15kms north-east of Port Douglas. The cay itself has golden sandy beaches, rich green vegetation and an iconic lighthouse which make this a postcard location. The warm waters which surround it are home to over 150 different species of corals, a combination of hard branching corals and array of colourful soft corals. Growing on walls and bommies, the corals provide haven for a range of marine life, large and small. Wrasse and Fusiliers dart around the edges, neon blue Chromis Fish dance in the staghorn corals while Anemonefish are dotted around the reef. If you listen while snorkelling, you’ll hear the schools of Parrotfish grazing on the corals and keep watch to spot Green Sea Turtles. When you choose ABC for your snorkel Low Isles day, a member of our team will be in the water with you, making sure you don’t miss a thing. Maximum of 12 guests. Personalised experience.

ABC Snorkel Charters takes a maximum of just 12 guests on our Low Isles snorkel tours. Our dedicated team are there to ensure you have the best time possible, in and out of the water. We provide reef and safety briefings, as well as snorkelling instruction, and help you fit your mask and snorkel.
We then jump in the water with you, providing a completely guided snorkel experience, ensuring you see the best of the reef and learn more about what it is you’re looking at. This ensures your Great Barrier Reef snorkel tour with ABC, leaves you enlightened and engaged with the wonders of this amazing underwater ecosystem.
Low Isles is a stunning location on the Great Barrier Reef. Depending on the conditions on your day of travel, our vessel will moor within snorkelling and swimming distance of the cay, or go right up to the beach. If we are offshore it’s likely you will see black-tipped reef sharks and giant bat fish around the boat. This makes for great photos and an exciting water entry.
Our days are customised to our guests and our crew provide a relaxed social atmosphere. All equipment is provided for your Low Isles snorkel tour, including mask, snorkel, fins, a lycra or wetsuit and buoyancy devices are available. If you are a non-swimmer or aren’t confident in the open water, then perhaps a larger boat which visits a pontoon may be better for you.
