Outer Reef excursions

Hello - I am looking for recommendations on where to stay in Port Douglas and who is the best excursion company to take us to the outer reef? Thanks Website details would be great if you have.

Dozens of options for both accommodation and tours so it would help if you gave more details of what you're looking for.

There's everything from budget accommodation to 5-star, some in the centre of Port, others a little way away - what is your budget? What time of year are you visiting? Will you be hiring a car? Do you snorkel and/or dive or would you like to learn? Would you prefer a large craft which takes you to a stable pontoon on the outer reef or a smaller boat which takes you to different reefs?

Also if you browse through this forum you'll find heaps of reports and recommendations from other folks!

in PD we use http://www.beachvillas.com.au/ for our accommo, 'wavelength' www.wavelength.com.au for our outer reef trip (small boat, snorkel only) and rent a car in cairns airport for transport and do 'the sights' on our own agenda. redspot car rental has so far been good.
