Join an exceptional cruise, which is an exclusive tour to the Great Barrier Reef with Frankland Islands Reef Cruises, the only cruise operator that visits this pristine location. Welcome! Let’s have a great time! This is truly the best addition to your trip to Australia.

Frankland Islands Reef Cruises offers a unique Great Barrier Reef experience in their cruise packages based on the stunning Frankland Islands National Park, which is just south of the City of Cairns. Frankland Islands Reef Cruises are the only operators to visit the island, offering small groups the fantastic opportunity to snorkel and dive into the healthy and vibrant fringing coral reef that surrounds the island. This Great Barrier Reef tour is full of adventures, so make sure you’re ready for all the fun and experience! It will truly be a time to remember.

Your tropical island adventure begins with pickup from your hotel before traveling south through UNESCO World Heritage-listed rainforest mountains and fields of sugar cane. Hop off the bus and onto a luxury boat, where you will enjoy a leisurely 30-minute cruise down the colorful Mulgrave River where migratory and breeding birds can be seen. Have your camera ready because you’ll want to capture all the beauty and uniqueness! Soak up the beauty of the surrounding rainforest-clad hills from the cabin or shaded deck as you admire the panoramic views.

After a short open water crossing (30 minutes), arrive at Frankland Islands National Park, which will be your tropical destination for the day. Spend 4-4.5 hours relaxing and exploring this secluded part of the Great Barrier Reef that sees no more than 100 visitors each day. Dive and snorkel straight from the pristine white sandy beach, where an expert marine naturalist guides you over the colorful corals and tropical fish while explaining this unique and fascinating ecosystem.

All snorkeling equipment and tuition on how to use masks, fins, and snorkel are provided. During the summer months, you will be provided with a protection suit. Included in the tour is an absolute delicious tropical lunch buffet that is served on the island with a choice of local fresh prawns, salad, chicken, ham, bread, and an abundance of fresh tropical fruit. The choices are big! There is also coffee, tea, and cake to enjoy.
