DAY ONE:  POSEIDON REEF CRUISES

This reef trip caters for snorkellers, introductory and certified scuba divers.

MV POSEIDON III, is an ultra modern 24 metre, high speed luxury catamaran. With a top speed of 30 knots, Poseidon offers a faster, more comfortable trip.

* Morning and afternoon tea with fresh fruit and cakes

* All snorkel equipment and tuition including lycra suits and floatation devices and prescription masks
* Courtesy transfers from your accommodation in Port Douglas
* Passenger numbers are limited to ensure personalised service and individual attention. Takes a maximum of 80 passengers
* The vessel features a large air-conditioned main saloon, a spacious top sun deck and wheelhouse salon, and a purpose built rear deck with a lowering transom which makes access to and from the water extremely easy and un-crowded.
* Environmental Management Charge (EMC)


Poseidon has been awarded one of the few permits to swim with Dwarf Minke Whales. These friendly mammals are regularly encountered from May to August, while their larger cousins, the Humpback Whales appear from July to September.

PLEASE NOTE: 
A history of asthma, heart, ear and other medical conditions may preclude a passenger from diving. 18 hours surface interval is recommended before flying. Certified divers are required to produce their Certification Cards and complete paperwork.

Return hotel transfers from Cairns or Port Douglas are included in the day.

DAY TWO:  BILLY TEA BUSH SAFARIS - CAPE TRIBULATION
 

Billy Tea Bush Safaris is the longest established 4WD day tour operator to Cape Tribulation.

TRIP INCLUSIONS:
* Return hotel transfers from Cairns, Northern Beaches, Port Douglas
* Environmentalist driver/guide
* Air conditioned 4WD vehicles
* Scenic coastal drive
* 1 hour Daintree River Cruise
* Morning Tea
* Alexandra Range lookout
* Guided National Park walks
* The 4WD "Bloomfield Track"
* Hand feed kangaroos
* Emmagen freshwater creek
* Tropical BBQ
* Walk on Cape Tribulation Beach
* National Park elevated boardwalks
* Cable ferry crossing
* Maximum of 14 passengers per vehicle

The first 1/2 of the journey north is very scenic with beautiful ocean views in contrast with the lush farmland around Mossman.  After morning tea you will learn about the mangrove rainforests, and hopefully observe local wildlife including the Estuarine Crocodiles on the Daintree River Cruise.

Ascending the Alexandra Range pause for a panoramic view of World Heritage Rainforest merging with the azure colours of the Coral Sea. Experience the rainforest first hand on an elevated Daintree National Park boardwalk. Your guide will offer interesting flora and fauna interpretation.

A delicious barbecue lunch with freshly made salads is prepared while you have the chance to hand feed a kangaroo and enjoy a cold drink from the bar.

This tour offers a little more... It takes you beyond Cape Tribulation along the 4WD only 'Bloomfield Track', arriving at pristine Emmagen Creek. You have the opportunity to take a refreshing swim. Look for fish and turtles in the creek, butterflies and exotic birds in the trees and often Goannas on the forest floor. Indulge in a feast of tropical fruit, a complimentary glass of white wine or savour a cup of Traditional Billy Tea, all of which enhance the tranquil surrounds.

At Cape Tribulation Beach there is a little time to swim (seasonal) or stroll along the beach and boardwalk where the Rainforest meets the Reef. 

On the way home travel over the Daintree River via the cable ferry crossing.

GREAT NEWS! All bookings made through Travstar do not incur a credit card surcharge.

A great contrast to do both

A great contrast to do both as you got to see the best of the true diversities of the area. Booking was straight forward and all transfers etc were on time.

Fantastic Tour

I just recently travelled with Billy Tea and had a wonderful time exploring the magnificent Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation. The guides, Matthew and Mick were fantastic and very passionate about the area. We even saw a Cassowary and a chick, Boyd's Forest Dragon, a 4 metre crocodile and lots more. The tropical fruit, damper and billy tea was a nice touch by Emmagen Creek. Will definately recommend others to do this tour if you are thinking of travelling to the Daintree and only have a day to do it!

Very informative and enjoyable experience.

Very well organised, very informative and enjoyable experience. Our driver/guide was great - he shared his extensive knowledge about the area in a very interesting narrative during the trip. Learned a lot about the Daintree trees and loved the tropical fruit and billy tea with damper at the freshwater pool. Our river trip was also interesting and our driver was most considerate and experienced. Plenty of good food at our lunch stop too.

Good day

Our trip to the reef was cancelled on Poseidon due to engine problems on the way out but we were transferred to Quicksilver and had a good day anyway

Definitely recommend the Poseidon Cruise.

I had a great time on the Poseidon. The thing that stood out to me most was the excellent staff. They were incredibly friendly, funny, helpful, knowledgable, and fun to be around. The gear they give you is great, the spots they take you to are beautiful (not too much bleaching), and the food is tasty. I went on a day when the boat was at less than half capacity (only 30-something passengers) so it made for easy communication between crew and passengers along with short food and drink lines. I definitely recommend the Poseidon Cruise.
