Your Day with Wavelength
Your day begins with checking in at the boat at Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina at 8.10am. After boarding tea or coffee is available and our crew will then introduce the itinerary and provide a safety briefing.

After boarding at 8.10am, Wavelength departs Port Douglas’ Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina taking you on a 90-minute trip to the edge of the continental shelf. Passing Low Isles en route, we often encounter dolphins and in winter may see dwarf minke or humpback whales. The journey is a good opportunity for our crew to get to know you and answer any questions you have about the day. During this time, you’ll be fitted out with quality snorkelling gear and shown how to use it. One of the marine biologists will give tips on what to look out for to get the most out of your day.

On arrival at the outer reef the snorkel advisor conducts a comprehensive safety brief and, if it’s your first time snorkelling, we have plenty of time to help you feel comfortable. Once in the water guests are free to explore the reef under the expert advice of our crew. 

After morning tea we move along to the second reef site. Here we conduct guided snorkel tours. Our marine biologists help snorkellers explore the Reef. 

The delicious deli-style lunch consists of gourmet rolls or food bowls for special diets. Water, soft drinks, coffee and tea are also available. Wavelength can cater for different dietary requirements including lactose and gluten free. 

Once everyone’s appetites have been satisfied and all questions answered we head to our final site of the day, where, with a better understanding of the reef, guests are free to adventure further. This is a good chance to make sure you have some great in-water photos. These are free of charge and forwarded by a link along with a selection of our favourite Wavelength wildlife pictures.

Following afternoon tea we head back with the wonderful view of the sun dropping towards the rainforest clad mountains. Wavelength arrives back in Port at approximately 4.00pm.

Visit Three sites in one day

  • Opal Reef - The jewel of the Great Barrier Reef
  • St Crispin's Reef - Vast coral vistas to inspire you
  • Tongue Reef - Snorkel with Turtles

We found wavelength to be very professional, friendly and educational experience.

The trip was well organised and very informative. Equipment was excellent but boat ride a little uncomfortable. Staff were very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly as well as passionate about the reef. It was a fantastic way to see the reef.
