I was a great sight seeing trip for the simple city that it is. Interesting day.

This was our second trip to Green Island and it was as amazing as the first. We saw sting ray and green turtles. It was quite busy, but you can manage to fin a quieter place to snorkel. Easy trip across and good price through Viator

Green island is pretty, and a beautiful place to swim/snorkel. Unfortunately, we didn't see much while snorkeling, so while relaxing, you likely need to go further out if you want to experience more marine life. I only did a half day on the island, which was more than enough for me. They have a pool and some outdoor cafes, shops, a massage place, etc., so you could make a day of it if you're interested.

We had trouble getting our tender from the Celebrity Solstice in time for 1100 Green Island tour, but called the office and were told that we missed the 1100 tour, as it was 1110. We were changed free of charge to the 1/2 day trip for 1PM that day. Very nice of them. Took Reef Rocket boat to Green Island and snorkeled from 1:30-3:45PM, forgetting about the glass bottom boat that was included in the price. Beautiful coral and fish and nice island. Had a great time!

The boat ride over to Green Island was great. It was full. The snorkeling was fantastic ! The crew told us where the best place was to snorkel.

The 1/2 day trip was good however, it was not long enough. Since we were only going to be in Cairns for a short period of time cruise ship this was the only excursion we could book. Green Island was great even though it rained and the glass bottom boat was good. I wish we could have snorkeled a little further out than was possible. I think if I ever go back, I would prefer to snorkel from a boat further on the great barrier reef. We could not experience the full beauty of the reef from the beach.

This excursion was a good one but we were not able to enjoy the snorkeling because of the presence of stinging jellyfish that had sent many people to the hospital. We were told that the presence of the jelly fish was seasonal and we were forced to wear "sting suits" to enter the water. It is my opinion that we should have been told about the jellyfish season and. Had the option to cancel the tour. The day we were there a person was life flighted to the hospital because of jellyfish stings. The locals told us the presence of these jelly fish would soon come to an end. We would not have gone had we known of the risk. The setting, Green Island was a very nice place. The glass bottom boat trip lasted less than 15 minutes though. It was not the best experience.

We did not enjoy Green Island since we did not snorkel. The island was overcrowded and we thought we could enjoy the hotel, but it was off limits. Way too touristy for us. The catamaran and the glass bottom boat were fine, but we wish we would have just stayed and walk about Cairns.
