Hot Air Ballooning

Start your day on a high with hot air ballooning over the rolling hills of the majestic Tablelands then experience the wonder, silence and romance of floating in a hot air balloon.

Enjoy the 360 degree panorama, before coming gently back to earth. After some fun pack up games, your door-to-door transfer will connect you to join your Low Isles Cruise.

Breakfast option available at own expense.

Wavedancer Low Isles Cruise

After your early morning ballooning experience, you’ll set sail aboard a 30 metre luxury sailing catamaran, Wavedancer, to the idyllic Low Isles, an unspoilt and uninhabited coral cay island on the Great Barrier Reef.

Just one hour’s sailing from Port Douglas, this is a wonderful all-inclusive 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.

See the reef from the glass bottom boat, swim and snorkel with a turtle! The marine biologist will take you on a guided beach walk and snorkelling tour.

Or if you prefer, you can just relax on the beach under a thatched umbrella or on the decks of Wavedancer. Lunch is served onboard Wavedancer
