A full day of adventure, eating and relaxing in a tropical paradise; that's what you'll experience on Lizard Island. You and your fellow travellers will be picked up at your hotel in Cairns and then it's time to jump aboard your chartered plane to enjoy an hour long scenic flight to the island. It's postcard perfection as soon as you land; green bushland, white sand and inviting turquoise waters all combine to create a blissful paradise. Walk to Watsons Bay and don your mask and flippers, it's a short swim to reach the coral and clam gardens and you'll probably bump into some colourful fish and turtles (who are known to visit the shallow waters) along the way. You will be supplied with an underwater camera, so you can snap your adventures with the beautiful marine life. You can also choose to dive, a good choice only if you'e a competent diver/strong swimmer.

Once you've worked up an appetite with all your snorkelling, it's time to tuck into a gourmet picnic lunch supplied by Stratford Deli. Then the afternoon is yours to laze away, perhaps it's more swimming or you'd like a little siesta under a Casurina tree at the water's edge? If you're feeling re-energised, you might want to walk to the top of Cooks Lookout, awe inspiring views await!It's time to say goodbye to your idyllic playground around 4:30pm, where you'll once again board the plane and enjoy a scenic flight that passes over Cape Tribulation, the Daintree and Port Douglas. Once you get off the plane, you will be driven back to your hotel for a much needed rest!
