Up early we need to be at Port Douglas by 0800. In the end we were ten minutes later than we wanted but it was OK. Checked in to the tour office and was sent directly to the boat. We had to wait a few minutes before boarding but it gave us time to look at the vessel we were sailing on today. The vessel usually takes twenty three passengers with no children under fourteen.
