It’s swimming, snorkelling, floating and a rainforest walk. Step into the cool, crystal-clear water and drift with the current as you explore life under the water’s surface. Watch fish dart in and around the river stones and keep your eyes out for the occasional turtle. This family friendly tour is the perfect way to stay cool in the hot tropics and a great introduction to snorkelling before heading out to the reef.
