Other Information

Disabled: It is difficult for guests who have restricted to no movement from their wheelchair due to the access on and off the boat is by ramp which is narrow (small wheelchairs can fit). When departing to Great Keppel Island we unload on the beach which makes it very difficult to get to the main concrete pathway however there are some vehicles on the island which could assist.

The Coral Cruise (glass bottom boat tour) runs everyday. This cruise includes the transfer to and from Great Keppel Island and an hour glass bottom boat tour around Middle Island, a small island just off Great Keppel Island.
