Ocean Free Sail to Green Island and the Great Barrier Reef

Ocean Free is for those guests wanting to experience a highly personal (25 guests maximum!) Great Barrier Reef Tour with the added bonus of having some time on a tropical island (Green Island). To also add a little soft adventure, your mode of transport is a classical 16 metre sailing schooner where you will also experience true sailing on the journey home (wind prevailing ).

On arriving at your exclusive mooring on Pinnacle reef, just one kilometre off Green Island, your friendly crew will brief and assist you as you excitedly step straight off the boat to explore the reef and marine life located just one metre below the surface! Enjoy a guided informative snorkel tour on this private protected Marine Park reef site. Turtles and black-tipped reef sharks (totally harmless) are a common sight.

After a morning of snorkelling (or optional diving) indulge in a fresh and tasty smorgasbord lunch while exchanging reef stories with fellow guests. After lunch a short trip in the tender takes you straight to Green Island beach. Explore interpretative walks on this small island or just relax on the pristine beach.
