Smallest group outer Reef Snorkel Tour
What are the advantages of snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef with Wavelength?
Wavelength provides small personalised snorkeling tours to the Great Barrier Reef with no more than 30 passengers. On average, Other Great Barrier Reef tour operators take group sizes of 100 passengers or more to the reef on one boat and some of the larger boats can take as many as 470 passengers. With Wavelength you can be assured of excellent customer care and service.
Snorkel only operation
Wavelength selects all their sites based on the specific needs of snorkelers. We take you to exclusive reef sites chosen specifically to suit the needs of snorkelers and local weather conditions on the reef. On windy days Wavelength takes our snorkelers to protected shallow lagoon sites on the Great Barrier Reef to maximise comfort and ease of snorkeling.
Other dive/snorkel operators tend to favour divers more on their Great Barrier Reef tours as the divers spend more money than snorkelers. Most of the time on these other dive/snorkel boats, snorkelers have to wait until all the divers are in the water before they can get in. Diver sites are much deeper and as such do not suit the needs of snorkelers. Our sites are pristine and largely untouched by humans.
Wavelength employs marine biologists as crew in order to offer a high level of interpretation of the Great Barrier Reef as we believe this will enhance our guests experience and appreciation of this remarkable World Heritage listed wonder. Our snorkeling marine biologists will take our passengers on a guided tour, explaining the many interesting intricacies of the Great Barrier Reef marine life and habitats.
Exclusive use snorkeling sites
More exclusive use moorings on the Great Barrier Reef than any other local tour operator selected exclusively for the needs and requirements of snorkelers. Our sites are not crowded with other snorkelers and boats. As one of the longest established local Great Barrier Reef tour operators, Wavelength have the best selection of outer reef sites available for snorkeling.
As we have do not take scuba divers to our sites, our coral does not have any diver-associated damage. In addition we have sites that are suitable for snorkeling and offer shelter and protection from the wind - no matter which direction the wind comes from.
