Take the helm of your very own motorised dinghy and discover the many pristine bays and reefs that fringe Orpheus. With more private beaches than guests, beach comb and enjoy a chef-prepared gourmet picnic hamper in absolute seclusion! After lunch, snorkel straight off the beach into pellucid blue-green waters and discover the mystical coral gardens and brightly coloured tropical fish of this underwater world.
A must-see is the giant clam nursery, located in Pioneer Bay. The nursery is populated by 300 impressive molluscs, each weighing 150-200kg, stretching 3ft in width, and donning ruffled chinchilla lips. The clams are the remains of an old research project from the late 1980s. When the project was completed, more than 10,000 clams were relocated to locations as far-flung as Cairns and Fiji.
