Port Douglas – Snorkeling Tour on the Great Barrier Reef

For my third solo trip to North Tropical Queensland I was keen to go snorkeling again. I had been on snorkeling tours before but my experience was disappointing. I didn’t like jumping from the boat, snorkelling around and coming back to the boat shivering and exhausted.
