Aquarius Luxury Sailing - adults only

The Ultimate Low Isles Experience - a place as unique and special as the Low Isles should have an equally special means of transport to get you there.

Tropical Journeys’ Aquarius is just that and is recognised as one of the most modern and luxurious sail boats to operate out of Port Douglas.

With only 23 guests, Aquarius is a dedicated snorkel only vessel, offering a personalised experience to this stunning tropical island on the Great Barrier Reef.

Relax on the spacious upper deck between guided snorkelling tours before tucking into a delicious seafood buffet lunch as well freshly made cakes for morning and afternoon tea.

Aquarius Port Douglas crew provide supervision and tuition as well as a comprehensive safety brief at the start of each day. Flotation devices are provided for snorkelling from the platform of Aquarius and the beach.

A journey to Low Isles is not complete without a trip ashore, on a custom built glass bottom boat, to learn about the history and environment that makes Low Isles what it is today. Enjoy the easy pace of the interpretive island walk and see first hand the historical Lighthouse, the Lighthouse Keeper's home and the Weather Station where local weather data is collected.

  • Glass bottom boat
  • Personalised, small guided snorkelling and island tours
