Frankland Island Reef Cruises
Frankland Islands Reef Cruises is an exclusive Cairns Great Barrier Reef island day tour. It starts with a rainforest river cruise, followed by the shortest open water crossing of any of the Cairns day tour boats, to put you right on the Great Barrier Reef.
Their destination is Normanby Island in the beautiful Frankland Islands National Park. Surrounded by vibrant fringing reefs, it’s home to many species of marine life, including turtles, octopus and the ever-popular anemone clownfish, Nemo. You have up to 4 hours to explore and enjoy this natural paradise, above and below the water. They’re the only commercial operator with a permit to visit these pristine, uninhabited islands, with a maximum of 80 people per day.
Your day includes coach transfers from Cairns CBD accommodation, a guided snorkel tour, a guided island walk (including a kids’ treasure hunt) and a buffet lunch. Optional activities include certified scuba diving and our adventure snorkel safari, or grab a kayak or stand up paddleboard and explore.
Transfer-only rates are also available – bring your own gear and lunch and enjoy the tranquillity. Relax and explore with no crowds and plenty of space and time to maximise your Great Barrier Reef experience.
