The Lady Elliot Island Great Barrier Reef all-inclusive Day Tour is the only one of its type in Australia. The visit allows you to view one of the most pristine sections of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef from the air as well as from above and below the water all in one day.

Your tour commences with a pickup from your city hotel at approx 6.30 am and a complimentary transfer to Redcliffe Airport for a scenic flight to the coral cay of Lady Elliot Island. Lady Elliot is regarded as one of the best snorkelling and diving locations on the reef, famous for its unspoilt coral reef and an amazing array of marine life! Upon arrival on Lady Elliot Island, the guide will take you on a brief orientation tour of the island and will escort you to the Day Guest facilities to collect your snorkel equipment.

You will then join a glass-bottom boat & guided snorkel tour to view a large variety of coral and brilliantly coloured fish, with the possibility to encounter turtles, dolphins and the resident manta rays. A hot & cold buffet lunch is served in the Beachfront Dining Room and includes a choice of wine, beer and soft drink. After lunch, join your guide for fish feeding in the Fish Pond and at 2.30 pm depart on a scenic flight back to Redcliffe. The tour concludes at approximately 4.15 pm with a return transfer back to your hotel. A light breakfast and afternoon tea (water & biscuit) are served inflight.

2 review for Lady Elliot Island Great Barrier Reef Day Tour | From Brisbane/Redcliffe

  1. Beautiful underwater view

    Our journey to the island was nothing short of amazing. The staff were a particularly welcoming committee. The dive shop and the glass-bottom boat crew were absolutely fantastic. The boat crew’s enthusiasm was infectious, but they maintained a sharp focus on guest safety at all times, so we were in good hands. The snorkelling experience was a highlight, with an abundance of brightly coloured fish, vibrant coral, and delightful encounters with turtles and small sharks. Our return flight was equally memorable. We’re already making plans to return during the manta ray season. This tour is definitely worth it, and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
