BTS Tours Pty Ltd

49 Macrossan Street, Port Douglas QLD 4877

Based in Port Douglas, BTS Tours have been operating specialised rainforest tours to the Daintree Rainforest since 1985.

The Daintree Rainforest tour explores the different habitats that combine to create and sustain the tropical rainforest environment. Expert naturalist guides distinguish flora and wildlife of the Daintree's wet tropic lowlands and the mysteries of its evolution and survival over millions of years. The Daintree is a remnant from the break up of Gondwanaland. Gondwanaland was the southernmost of two super continents that included what is now the southern Hemisphere of our planet.

The World Heritage Daintree Rainforest is a pocket of ancient tropical rain forest locked in a biological time capsule on the driest continent on earth where ancient species have somehow survived the ravages of time since the Gondwana break up.

This wonderful bommie is home to turtles, sweetlips, coral trout, trevally, fusiliers and schools of yellow-finned goatfish, snubnose drummer and blue-lined snapper.

Nursery Bommie Dive Site

Agincourt Reefs, Port Douglas QLD 4877
One of the most impressive dive sites on the Agincourt Reefs, off Port Douglas, is a large pinnacle called Nursery Bommie. This column of coral rises from 2 metres to 25 metres and is decorated with sea whips, soft corals and gorgonians, but it is the fish life that will be most remembered. At the base of the bommie is always a school of colourful blue-striped snapper, but also common are barracuda, trevally, surgeonfish and fusiliers. Cut by numerous ledges, make sure you check these out as you are likely to see rock cod, lionfish, coral cod, nudibranchs and maybe a lovely leaf scorpionfish. The top of Nursery Bommie is home to hundreds of fairy basslets and also a massive school of snubnose drummer, making for a very memorable dive.
