Your day starts with morning pickup at your hotel in Cairns or the Northern Beaches and transfer to the Cairns City heliport.
Your helicopter pilot welcomes you and provides a short safety briefing before you take off from Cairns and fly out over the Great Barrier Reef on your 20-minute scenic helicopter flight. As you depart Cairns, see the emerald rainforest below you before the magnificent colors of the Great Barrier Reef come into view.
After a gentle landing on Green Island, disembark from your helicopter and enjoy four to six hours in paradise on a 6,000-year-old coral cay in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, located 16.5 miles (27 km) from Cairns.
With lush rainforest on land and coral reefs surrounding the island, you can enjoy a day of snorkeling, swimming and walking in the rainforest. See the reef on the included glass-bottom boat tour, and go snorkeling and swimming from the white-sand beach. Your tour includes the use of snorkeling equipment and to Green Island's swimming pool. You can also take a short stroll along raised boardwalks that wind through the rainforest, follow a self-guided trail, and look for sea turtles swimming just off the island.
A delicious hot and cold buffet lunch is included, served at Greens Buffet. Enjoy four hours on Green Island before you return to Cairns by high-speed catamaran. Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
