Wavedancer Low Isles

Low Isles is an idyllic, unspoilt Great Barrier Reef coral island. Wavedancer is a luxury 30 metre sailing vessel catamaran which provides the trip for families and couples seeking island relaxation.

Low Isles is a 4 acre coral cay surrounded by 55 acres of reef situated 15km north-east of Port Douglas. Low Isles is two small islands separated with one common reef. The larger of the two, Woody Island, is uninhabited except for a large bird population. It is a vital habitat for many species.

The corals are very close to the island which makes snorkelling an enjoyable experience. On the island Wavedancer's crew will erect permanent thatched umbrellas so clients can relax on the beach and enjoy the beautiful white sandy beach around them.

With Wavedancer guests travel in calm and translucent waters to Low Isles lagoon, where there are many reef activities available for the day. Wavedancer's friendly crew take clients on a informative, relaxing day where they can discover the reef through jumping in the water and trying some snorkelling or going on the glass bottom boat tour around the island. A guided beach walk and snorkel tour with a Marine Biologist is also part of the activities for the day.

Morning tea, afternoon tea and a delicious tropical buffet lunch are also included for the day.

This is the perfect tour to relax on the decks of the beautiful Wavedancer vessel or on Low Isles beach under a umbrella.
