Tour Information

An hour sailing time from Port Douglas

Low Isles is set like a jewel in a Great Barrier Reef lagoon, an idyllic unspoiled tropical paradise that appeals to everyone. The wide sandy beach and clear, calm lagoon are ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

Take your mask and snorkel and swim gently around the coral gardens where you’ll see curious clownfish and graceful turtles.

We want to make sure you are aware, the reefs at Low Isles were significantly affected by the extreme flooding and associated sediment caused by Cyclone Jasper in December 2023. According to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), this was a 1 in 100 year event.

This has resulted in significant damage to a large amount of the coral on the surrounding reef flat at Low Isles. The island itself was unaffected and is still the beautiful coral cay that it has always been, with its extensive bird life and natural habitat. In water there are still living coral colonies, which are slowly recovering from the damage done by the flooding, and you will still see green turtles and an abundance of fish life.

To assist in the recovery of this sensitive ecosystem Wavedancer has limited the numbers travelling to the island to avoid putting additional stress on the environment in which you will be visiting.
