Frankland Islands Tour
This Frankland Islands Tour takes you to an unspoiled, pristine archipelago located about 10km offshore and 45km southeast of Cairns.
Frankland Islands are surrounded by a fringing reef and home to various marine life. This group of islands are within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
Next, explore the underwater world on a guided snorkel tour or scuba dive.
You don’t want to get wet?
Then we have a glass-bottom boat and semi-submersible that allows you to view the marine life and coral without getting wet!
There is so much to experience on the pristine white sandy beach. Next, join a guided island walk with our marine naturalists.
Then explore the island’s rock pools, see the birdlife and the lush tropical vegetation.
