Double Island Snorkelling – best kept secret

Double Island Snorkelling – best kept secret

Double Island snorkelling – Double Island is a small island situated about 1.5 kms off the coast of Palm Cove, Cairns. It is a beautiful island surrounded by fringing reefs. Double Island is probably the closest point to the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns. Here at Pacific Watersports we we have been given special permission to run kayak snorkelling tours to the fringing reefs of Double Island.

Double Island snorkelling – Kayak Turtle Tours

On our Kayak Turtle Tours to Double Island, we also stop at our secret snorkelling spot, provided the conditions are suitable. There the coral is thriving and beaming with life. It is also a great place to spot Hawksbill and Green sea turtles.

Conditions

The conditions for snorkelling at Double Island really need to be nice and calm. The wind can pick up from time to time making the water visibility not the best for snorkelling. However, the tour is still a great way to see sea turtles and other marine life. We also use the sail on the guides kayak to sail back if the wind picks up.

Best time to visit

Palm cove and the surrounding areas are beautiful all year around. The winter months (May – November) bring cooler nights and warm days. The summer months (December – April) bring very warm tropical conditions

Crocs

We dont see crocodiles as an issue here at Palm Cove. I personally have only seen 1 crocodile in the ocean in the last 6 years. Crocodiles live in the rivers and tend to use the ocean as a way to get to another river. However, it is never a good idea to go swimming at night anywhere in Queensland.
