Aquarius Low Isles - Reef
About Aquarius Low Isles
Low Isles was discovered by Captain Cook in 1770 and was described in his log as a ‘small low island’. The idyllic tropical island is situated approximately 8 nautical miles from Port Douglas and is home to not only spectacular coral gardens and marine life, but to a plethora of spectacular migratory bird life such as mangrove kingfishers, sea eagles and ospreys.
Surrounded by 55 acres of coral reef, much of it close to the shore, snorkelling from the boat allows guests to enjoy the many different coral species with minimal effort. The sanctity of the blue lagoon creates a calm and protected snorkelling site with an abundance of marine life such as fusiliers, sweet-lip, angelfish and turtles.
The lighthouse on Low Isles was built in 1878 and has long become a base for scientific research and weather data collection. Low and Woody Islands make up Low Isles and form a protected lagoon area in between the two islands.
Low Isles is approximately 4 acres in size, all of which is protected by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. With only limited vessels permitted to charter guests to Low Isles, Aquarius is committed to the protection and conservation of this fragile marine park.
The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is over 2300km in length and is over 18 million years old. It is the single most object of which can be viewed from space and continues to create lifetime memories for thousands of visitors each year.
A true phenomenon, the GBR is one of the most diverse and remarkable ecosystems in the world. The Great Barrier Reef was inscribed on the World Heritage list in October 1981.
