This Australia adventure vacation package was planned for a couple who loved marine life and wanted unique experiences in Australia.  So we started them at the unique Tangalooma, which offers one of the only wild dolphin feeding experiences in Australia.  The highlight of any visit to Tangalooma is the opportunity to hand feed one of the wild bottlenose dolphins that visit the shores each evening at sunset.  There are up to 10 of these playful creatures that visit regularly, each with their own distinctive and unique personalities.Tangalooma has more than 80 ways to discover and connect with wildlife and the environment.  From there, the couple took their Australia adventure vacation to Port Douglas so they could enjoy the one and only Great Barrier Reef.  They spent a day on the reef snorkeling in three different spots, swimming with fish and coral they had never seen before, they even got to see a few Reef Sharks.  Enjoy your precious time at the Great Barrier Reef in the superb style and comfort of the Silver Series. We’re all about less people, more reef destinations, and a crew who knows the reef like the locals they are. Our ultra modern vessels are custom-designed and infused with over 30 years experience of Great Barrier Reef cruising to help you get the best out of your day.  Then next day on their Australia adventure vacation, they traveled to the oldest living rainforest, the Daintree Rainforest, for a full day of flora and fauna.  They took a cruise down the Daintree River to see the saltwater crocodiles.  It was a perfect marine life adventure of a lifetime.  Suggested Length:  7 Days
