It's a scenic boat ride out to Orpheus Island so make sure you bring a camera. We'll work with you to ensure you're aware of tides and other aspects that may affect your scheduled departure times to and from the Island. When you're on the Island, make sure you take care to maintain the pristine nature of the area by avoiding damaging coral and other natural features.
