What a wonderful way to start the day a 30min paddle at first light.We gently glide over the fringing reefs of Double Island waiting for those first streaks of sunlight to burst from the horizon. Once on the island we setup fresh fruit and juices before trekking along the shore line looking for Blue Spotted Lagoon rays, Mangrove rays, Eagle rays, Shovel Nose sharks and an array of fish and crabs - not to mention the birds of prey. With the sun now glistening over the water we start our journey back to Palm Cove whilst looking deep into the reef beneath. You won't be disappointed getting up early for this tour!
For something a little different and challenging return from Double Island by Paddle Board
You will be amazed at the beauty of what Double Island and it's surrounding reefs hold. We start the tour with an introduction to paddling a sea kayak and quick safety talk. It's not long before we are paddling over the beautiful fringing reefs with fish and rays jumping in front of us and Ospreys overhead. We pull the kayaks up to the beach at Scout's Hat and explore the rock pools for octopus, sea cucumber, crabs, soft corals and a vast array of Great Barrier Reef fish.
