The Frankland Islands is the only Reef and River Great Barrier Reef Island Cruise. Located 35 minutes south of Cairns, Normanby Island is a National Park, part coral cay continental island with a healthy and vibrant fringing coral reef. You can literally snorkel straight off the beach, with a vast array of tropical fish and the opportunity to swim along side sea turtles. With the shortest open water crossing you are there and home again in perfect timing.

This is an adventure not to miss and as a local living in Cairns for 25 years this is one of my favourite Reef Tours.                                                Perfect for families, singles or couples. 

May and June is peak Manta Ray season at the Frankland Islands – last week one breached right by the beach! Looking forward to more sightings of these amazing creatures..
