All about the Port Barton Island Tour by Private Boat (Itinerary A).

Our Port Barton Private Boat Tour allows you to explore the natural beauty of the islands of Port Barton Bay at your own pace and flexibility.
With their pristine sapphire blue waters and unspoiled beaches, the islands of Port Barton are the perfect place to swim and relax away from the crowds.

With our private Port Barton tour, you have complete freedom to choose your itinerary. You can choose our prepackaged adventure or design it entirely to your liking. If you are traveling with young children or older family members and friends, a private adventure is especially convenient as you can set the pace of the tour yourself.

Here are the details of the suggested attractions on our Port Barton Tour (Route A):

Twin Reef is the most popular snorkeling spot in Port Barton. Located just 20 minutes from the main beach, Twin Reef is inexplicably beautiful. The visibility is great due to the incredible clarity of the water and you can see the endless number of fish swimming right in front of you.

Fantastic Reef is easily accessible from Maxima Island and provides habitat for a wide variety of marine life. While snorkeling, you can observe crystal clear aquamarine waters, hard and soft corals, and beautiful tropical fish.

Exotic Island is one of the most scenic islands in Port Barton. Unique to Exotic Island is that it is connected to another island (Maxima Island) by a tombolo, a type of sandbar with shallow water. Thanks to its narrow channel, through which you can walk from one island to another, it is one of the favorite islands of travelers.

A shallow channel separates Maxima Island from nearby Exotic Island. Maxima Island, also known as Double Island, offers a white sand beach and crystal clear waters. The island is also good for lazing on the beach and having a picnic. Maxima Island, along with Exotic Island, is considered by many travelers to be one of the best Instagram spots in Port Barton.

Port Barton is home to a variety of marine life, including sea turtles. On this tour, you will be taken to a spot where you can snorkel to see green and hawksbill sea turtles. Since these gentle creatures are on the endangered species list, it is a special experience to catch a glimpse of them.

The last stop on our tour is usually Starfish Island. This is actually not an island, but a sandbar that emerges from the sea at low tide. It gets its name from the numerous starfish that cavort in the shallow waters.
