Wavedancer Low Isles - Great Barrier Reef Island Sailing
Set like a jewel in the Great Barrier Reef, Low Isles is an idyllic, unspoilt coral cay island â€“ a tropical island paradise. Combined with the romance of big ship sailing aboard Quicksilverâ€™s luxury 30 metre sailing catamaran, Wavedancer, this is the perfect day for families and couples seeking island relaxation.
From the moment Wavedancer moors in the calm waters of the island's picturesque lagoon, a host of reef activities await. Our friendly crew will take you on a leisurely, informative day where island visitor numbers are limited. Discover the mysteries of marine life while snorkelling or glass bottom boat viewing. Take a guided beach walk and snorkelling tour with a marine biologist or just relax on the beach under a thatched umbrella. Let our crew pamper you in the luxurious air-conditioned lounge with its fully licensed bar, or soak up the sun and sea air under the sails on Wavedancer's expansive deck.
This tour is accredited with Advanced Ecotourism and Climate Action Certification.
