Wavelength Eco Snorkel Reef Tour

A truly unique reef experience for the traveller who seeks a more personalised and relaxed approach to exploring the Great Barrier Reef by mask, snorkel and fins. Carrying only 30 people and dedicating its entire Outer Reef day to snorkellers Wavelength is in the rare position of being able to provide you a customised experience that meets your needs whether you are a beginner or an experienced snorkeller. Many of Wavelengths sites are privately registered and are certified by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority as low-impact sites. This means these sites are not heavily visited therefore preserving their pristine quality. A day on Wavelength is like a day out with your friends as their professional yet relaxed and friendly crew share their playground with you. One of the original Port Douglas Reef tours, Wavelength is still owned and managed by eco-tourism pioneer Steve Simpson and has achieved icon status amongst discerning travelers from around the globe.
