Chinese Junk Island Sail
The Chinese Junk Shaolin is one of the longest running snorkel boats in town and also a Port Douglas icon. She visits the beautiful Low Isles, a gorgeous island located off the coast of Port Douglas. Sailed all around the world, the Junk was built in 1969. It first sailed out of Port Douglas offering tours in 1988.
Handcrafted fromTeak, Kalantis and Yacal timbers the Chinese Junk is a truly beautiful vessel. The Junk is very heavy as well weighing in at 25 tonnes. Lovingly restored by the current owners, the Shaolin is available for private charters to the Low isles and can take a maximum of 23 guests.

The Junk is perfect for large family groups – (did someone say PIRATE SHIP) or adventurers wanting something a little different. The Chinese Junk also offers sunset sails as well as shared charter sunset sails.
The Junk offers plenty of time at the island to relax and enjoy. A delicious lunch is also provided as well as all snorkeling equipment and tuition. The crew will take you on a guided snorkel in order to see some of the resident turtles as well as the giant clam gardens and the beautiful tropical fish.
