What You Can Expect
Board a luxury catamaran and soak up the aquamarine landscape on the cruise to the island. Once ashore, choose from a variety of ways to explore the surrounding coral gardens and tropical rain forest.
Make use of provided snorkeling equipment to swim among tropical fish, giant clams and sea turtles, opt for a guided scuba dive (own expense) or view the amazing reef on a glass-bottom boat tour. You can also get a unique perspective of the underwater world on a semi-submarine boat tour (select option at booking).
Visit the Green Island Resort to use facilities, browse shops and rent beach and watersport equipment including chairs and umbrellas, canoes, sailboards and surf skis. If you’re in the mood for a snack or refreshment, purchase food and drinks from the resort or the fully licensed bar aboard the catamaran.
After 2 hours exploring the reef and island, relax and enjoy the tropical scenery on the return cruise to Cairns.
great staff on the boat, very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was wonderful.
We took a ferry to Green Island, then took a glass bottom boat to the Great Barrier Reef, and then a submarine. They're similar, but the sub gives a closer look at the amazing fish and plant life. The island doesn't have much on it, but many people went snorkeling, which looked like fun. There's time to do all 3 activities, but the snorkeling will be short. I recommend doing this half day tour, then in the afternoon, adding the gondola ride to Daintree Rain Forest and returning by train.
We had a limited amount of time so we did two half day tours on the same day without problem. Enough time to go on glass bottom boat better then we expected, snorkel, and walk around the vey small island.
it was great had the best time every loved all off it meet some wonderfully poeple on the trip xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Even though we did not book the sea walker tour, big cat tours helped us with the booking on board the cruise. they also refunded our tours which we did not attend.
Overall the trip was amazing and helpful staff which made the trip worthwhile.
A full day trip is recommended for people who want more of the island.
Fast boat to the island and back to Cairns, good value, friendly helpful crew, great inclusions.
Great trip - should have booked the full day, but loved it
a well organized trip.had a great experience .thank you
We flew into Cairns at 10:30am, and had time to get to the hotel, have lunch, and walk to the main fleet terminal (where all the boats are docked) for our 1:00pm trip to Green Island.
The crew was very nice and friendly.
Nice beach, clear water, and lots of tropical fish.
IMPORTANT: If you suffer from motion sickness, take Dramamine or something before boarding. The ocean was only mildly choppy, but 10 people got sick, and several threw up.
Good value for the money. You get to see a lot in a short time. Lovely place too!
