Reef and Island Tours from Port Douglas

Sailaway sets the standards high for nature based, snorkelling and sailing experiences on the Great Barrier Reef.

 

Our commitment to Eco Tourism is an opportunity to increase awareness and appreciation of our natural environment.

 

Our focus is on 1st class service, small numbers of guests, premium sailing and snorkelling experiences to Mackay & Undine Coral Cays on the Outer Reef and idyllic Low Isles, a coral cay island.

 

Sailaway specialises in snorkelling, with qualified marine biologists sharing their passion for the marine life with expert guiding and interpretation.

 

Sailing is a relaxing and invigorating way to travel to our spectacular locations. Using mostly wind power, this is the most sustainable way to experience the Great Barrier Reef.

 

We invite you to choose the best Sailaway experience to suit you.

MACKAY & UNDINE CORAL CAYS

The Coral Cays are pure white sand surrounded by a large fringing reef system and crystal clear water.

Sailaway is the only operator from Port Douglas who has access to visit Mackay and Undine Cays. This exclusivity means we have the area to ourselves to explore without restrictions.

Low Isles

Low Isles is an idyllic Coral Cay island. The reef around Low Isles comprises 150 species of hard corals and is dominated by 15 species of soft corals.

Guests of Sailaway have the opportunity to snorkel in the lagoon of the island with our marine biologist, offering an interesting and informative tour.

Sunset Sailing
