We went to a sand cay quite close to Cape Tribulation to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef with Ocean Safari. The boat was a zodiac with room for 25 people & our trip was full. The day we went the wind was up and the sea was very choppy & frankly we were wondering just why we were doing this. As soon as we got in the water we knew - just outstanding snorkeling - we have snorkeled all over the world & this really was one of the best we've ever seen. We saw our first turtle in 5 minutes. Stingrays and a spotted leopard ray were exciting spots too. Won't lie about the conditions being really difficult, but despite the big swell, it was totally worth it. On a fine day it would be outstanding.
The crew were friendly and good humoured and everyone had a good time. Those who gave up early saw whales breaching! This is a great tour we'd very highly recommend.
