River Drift Snorkelling

If you are looking for something different to do in Port Douglas, then the River DriftSnorkel down the Mossman river is a must ! We did with our children aged 11 and 13 and it was a great intro to snorkelling before we went to the Reef. We were picked up by our guides at 9am and taken to Mossman River. We were then given wetsuits ( water is cold) and before snorkel commenced we had a snorkelling lesson and safety lesson on swimming in the river. Guides were highly entertaining and informative. You could choose to snorkel the whole way or they had some floats you could hold onto if you were not as comfortable. This is for all ages and no snorkel experience is required. Our group consisted of 8 plus 2 guides so it was a nice number to enjoy this activity with and enjoy the serenity of the Mossman River and this most relaxing experience !


“Awesome experience”

My wife and two daughters under 12 did the River Drift Snorkel. What a fantastic way to spend an arvo. We saw heaps of fish and a turtle. It was a great introduction to snorkelling for the girls who were heading to the reef the next day.
We will be back to do it again next time we’re up.
