    My family (2 elementary school students and mom and dad) visited Cairns at the end of May 2022. I experienced Green Island tour as an outdoor activity. Traveled peacefully, arrived and snorkeling in the sea of Green Island and strolled along the beach!!! Green Island is such a wonderful place and there are many clean and wonderful corals in the sea!!! So, We ate the onboard lunch buffet and was satisfied! After lunch, we boarded another small boat and went to see dolphins and corals in the sea. It was such a wonderful experience!!! Our family was very satisfied and happy with this Green Island cruise trip! I highly recommend it to all of you!!!👍

    Check in was a breeze and plenty of room on the boat. Very slow journey to island which seemed to take forever. Disappointed with how I was spoken to by one of the older members of the crew. If the commentary is not loud enough to hear, then expect questions from your guests. Lunch was absolutely delicious and we had a nice day on the island. Saw a lot of fish near the jetty area but not as many or the variety I have seen on other Great Barrier Reef tours. Worth doing this tour if you haven't done others previously.

    $130 for the ticket, free use of snorkel gear and lunch incl. the check in process was quite smooth, you get your snorkel gear soon as you’re on board. Gotta provide something for deposit, money or license etc. 40min ride to green island,l. We saw a turtle as soon as we got off the boat, the pier is quite long. You’ll be told about which beach has the life guards etc. there are beach chairs and umbrellas, $40 to hire to the resort and a little stall there for snacks. The staff on the boat were lovely and the lunch was delicious! The reef was mostly dead but saw a lot of fish

    I had a great experience doing the 9am half day tour that included snorkel gear. Was greeted right away walking off the boat down the pier by a sea turtle! Snorkeling and coral were great out are the pier area. Even though a much larger boat followed the smaller one I was on, the island never felt crowded- was easy to find nice isolated beach to lay on. I have been unhappy on mass tour boats previously- too chaotic and very long days, so the half day option was perfect.

    We absolutely loved our recent trip to Green Island with Big Cat Island Reef Cruises. It was fast and smooth and we had a wonderful day exploring the island and snorkelling in the incredible waters exploring the corals and marine life then swimming at the gorgeous beach ! Highly recommend!!
