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.
Glad wedid this first. Weather was much better and had a great day. Good trip over, ride in semi sub and glass bottom boat was also great. Enjoyed lunch on island and went and saw the crocs and returned with some great picsfor the kids.
Had a wonderful day staff on board were great all extras were well worth it. The waters on the reef were magic thank you for super great day wow soon happy we took this trip
An excellent trip onto the Great Barrier Reef, a fantastic way to see it and the marine life upon it. The trip is well worth the money paid and highly enjoyable.
