Back Country Bliss Adventures – River Drift Snorkel

$139 adult

Step into the cool, crystal clear water and drift with the current as you explore life under the water’s surface within the rainforest.


Tour Details

If you love nature and the water, then snorkeling Port Douglas has never been so much fun.

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 keep cool in the hot tropics and is a great introduction to snorkelling before heading out to the reefs.

Even small children can journey down the river on large river sleds.

Used as the location for the Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg series The Pacific, this amazing eco-immersion adventure is a must-try.

Sometimes it is fast and exciting, other times slow and relaxing.
