Join us on this leisurely guided ecotour through the calm, clear waters of the Great Sandy Marine Park. A Butchulla man will be your guide, offering you a unique Indigenous experience on board.

You will be able to view the healthy reef from the comfort of the Milbi, one of Australia’s largest glass bottom boats, keep your eye out for fish habitat, turtles, dolphins, sea bird colonies, and possibly a reef shark or a dugong. For those more adventurous, snorkelling is offered provided reef conditions are safe to do so.

Time is set aside to explore Round Island, enjoy a healthy lunch and be received by a Welcome to Country. Conditions permitting we may visit spectacular Pelican Banks, famous for its crystal clear waters which are perfect for swimming or just relaxing on the white, sandy shores.
