we are heading to Cairns and Port Douglas in December and we want to do some snorkeling and maybe an introductory dive. I've read so many reviews about Wavelength, Silver Swift and all the other boats for day trips to the Great Barrier. I would like to go on a boat smaller in size and fewer people as I would love to have a more personal experience and would like to avoid backpackers (to be honest). Has anyone any suggestions about boats that take fewer people?
Has anyone recommendations for Indigo? (but they only visit one site of Low Isles Island?)
Or does anyone know of private affordable boat charters?
We want to do 2-3 snorkel trips, then also the Daintree Rainforest, a river crocodile tour and a couple of days of relaxing at the beach.
We are flexible as we are going to hire a car. Any recommendations in WHAT to not miss?
