Snorkelling on the Reef

Snorkelling is a great way to experience the Great Barrier Reef. Our friendly and professional crew on Ocean Freedom and Ocean Free will assist snorkellers of all abilities to ensure all get to experience this great activity.

Get the most of your snorkelling experience on the Great Barrier Reef, by joining a snorkel tour. Both Ocean Free and Ocean Freedom provide personal snorkel tours so that you can feel comfortable in the fact that not only are you being taken care of, but you are being shown the best sites on the reef by our competent and caring crew. No previous experience needed - you will be provided with snorkel jackets and crew assistance as needed. Be confident in the fact that our snorkel equipment is top quality and there is no extra cost for the snorkel equipment or tours. They are all included in the tour price!

On Ocean Freedom experience an Adventure Drift Snorkel Tour. All levels of snorkellers can experience this tour as Ocean Freedom will put in as many crew as needed to assist any inexperienced snorkellers. This is also an inclusion of the tour - so no extra cost! You will be driven in a dinghy along “Wonder Wall” on the outer edge of Upolu Reef and dropped off with crew and learn about the reef as you do a drift snorkel tour back to the main vessel Ocean Freedom. What an experience - make sure you take some photos!
