Half Day Tours
Our half-day tours depart twice daily. Our Morning tour departs at 8.30am and arrives back at 12.30p.m. The afternoon tour departs at 1.00p.m and arrives back at 4.30p.m.
On the first leg of our journey we depart Palm Cove and head off toward Double Island. About 500 meters from the island you will notice the water becoming shallow and the first signs of the fringing reef emerge. This is our opportunity to start looking for the plethora of marine life that live in the area. We beach our kayaks and tide permitting, a walk along the sand bank to see what other aquatic animals we can discover. Here our guide will give you an insight into the amazing history of the island and you can take in the beautiful panorama of the coastline and surrounding islands.
The tour then kayaks around to the northern side of the island to a secluded, sheltered little beach nestled in between rocky cliffs and Pandanus trees. Here we take time to chill out and enjoy the stunning views of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation, while enjoying a morning or afternoon tea consisting of tropical fruits, juice and cakes. Between May and November we are able to don a mask and snorkel and explore the reef.
We then complete our circumnavigation of Double Island as we head for the mainland. This last paddle is around 45 minutes. There is minimal fitness required . Transfers are available from your Hotel in Cairns or Port Douglas for this tour.
Bookings are essential as we only take very small groups on this eco-friendly tour.
