Product Description

Frankland Islands Cruise & Dive is the only tour operator licensed to visit the untouched beauty of the Frankland Islands. The vessel takes up to a maximum of 100 passengers which ensures your day on the reef is both service and safety orientated.

Your day begins with a morning cruise along the Mulgrave river. From the mouth of the river, your destination on the Great Barrier Reef is already in sight, making it the shortest open sea crossing in North Queensland. Welcome to Normanby Island, one of the five stunning islands that comprise the Frankland Islands.

The island's pristine waters are a coral haven for snorkelling and scuba diving (additional cost - see booking options). Visitors share the immaculate reef with green sea turtles, tropical fish and giant clams. While leisurely guided island walks take you through rainforests, rock pools and along secluded sandy beaches. You can satisfy your appetite when you dine under a canopy of trees with a tropical buffet lunch including prawns, fresh salads and tropical fruits.

The Frankland Islands offer visitors the unique experience of abundant marine life and untouched beauty on the Great Barrier Reef. These are uninhabited islands, with uninhibited beauty.

Please note that because this reef trip departs from the Mulgrave River, about 45 minutes drive south of Cairns, you are encouraged to book the return hotel transfers (additional charge) so that you can be assured to find the right place to board the boat. The boat does NOT depart from the Cairns Marina.
