excellent trip (despite the rain) all staff were excellent, would definately do again in the future.
Brilliant!! Pleasant ferry crossing an amazing island, swam with the fish in the barrier reef in warm waters. Excellent beaches and good food supplied as part of the deal. Highly recommended.
We absolutely loved this excursion! The ride to the island was very enjoyable. We took advantage of both the semi-submersible as well as the glass-bottomed boats since neither of us are snorkeling or diving fans. There was enough time to enjoy a visit to the island and spend some time enjoying the beach areas.
Everything was lovely. We were picked up on time and the boat left on time. We were lucky that the sea was lovely and calm and the weather perfect. Our time on Green Island was excellent and we could easily have spent more time there but we did have sufficient time to do all we really wanted to do. The semi-submersible and glass bottom boat tours gave us a wonderful overview of the Great Barrier Reef without us having to get wet! Super for people who do not want to snorkel. The included lunch was very good - lots of choices and plenty of it. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
Best trip ever. We had the best time. Will be coimg back again and again.
The ride out to Green Island is fairly quick and smooth, now do be aware that there is a deposit ( money,ID, or a room key) required for the snorkel gear. The island itself is lovely as is the beach. Now I have to assume time of year matters but there was a HUGE drop in tide from morning to afternoon. The staff was friendly, the water so clear, and heaps of coral and fish to see and photograph. As a side note the buffet lunch was tasty and plentiful, but you do need to pay for drinks fyi. Overall a very enjoyable way to spend a day and I would absolutely recommend it.
The catamaran trip out and back was smooth and the staff are friendly and efficient - we even got to see some whales ! Take the opportunity to hire the snorkelling gear as the waters are crystal clear and teeming with fish. Also, take a walk around the island and through the centre. Buffet lunch was very nice and the view of coral and fish from the glass-bottom boats is well worth it. A great day out.
Trip of a lifetime!!! Me and my husband fully enjoyed our snorkeling trip. We visited Cairns for our 10 year anniversary and this made it even more memorable. I will highly suggest renting the wet suit and additional gear, it worked out great except my husbands goggles kept leaking but other than that it was fine and prices were fair. Snorkeling was fantastic, the fish were amazing, the island was beatiful and the staff very friendly. Would take again in a heartbeat!!!!
Beautiful cruise to the gorgeous Green Island.. Glass bottom boat and semi-sub tours were awesome!
Really good day. Boat was comfortable and the staff efficient. We enjoyed the snorkelling but would also recommend the semi sub as a good way to see the coral. We also took the glass bottom boat tour and this was also fun. The day was well structured but if you want to snorkel you really need to do the full day tour. We managed to fit it all in and still had a bit of time to just sit in the sun.
Our trip to Green Island Day was fantastic! The island was beautiful, the water was crystal clear and the lunch was nice. We went on the glass bottom boat and semi-sub tour and is was definitely worth while. We saw sea turtles, giant clams, gorgeous corals and lots of different types of fish. I would definitely do this trip again, but maybe next time I would scuba dive to explore the reef further.
