Explore the beautiful Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef with a half-day tour departing Cairns at 9 am. Aboard the 'Reef Rocket', you'll make your way over to Green Island, a coral cay on the reef located just 45 minutes from the mainland.
Learn about the Great Barrier Reef and the different types of corals and fish that can be found surrounding beautiful Green Island with expert commentary. View the diversity of the reef's coral gardens and the wonderful array of sea life, with the added fun of a fish feeding.
Once you've reached the island you'll be able to enjoy a total of 2hrs 15mins exploring the tropical rainforest on the island and the reef surroundings. Guests will also be given the choice of snorkelling equipment to use during their stay on the island or a 30-minute ride on the glass bottom boat (excludes Transfer Only option) to see the reef while staying dry.
So glad I booked this! No wait time getting onto the boat. Plenty of equipment. Plenty of seats. Aircon inside was nice. The weather was perfect. Mostly blue skies. The trip wasn’t too long there and back. Partner and I did the glass boat tour and semi submerged tour and it was pretty amazing. Saw turtles, an eel, reef shark and plenty of fish. The snorkel spots were really amazing and we swam along side a turtle. Would book with these guys again!
What a great day for the family while visiting cairns, the weather was great and the visibility was fantastic. The whole process from boarding, getting snorkelling equipment, disembarking on to the island, was so polished, all the staff were fantastic. We chose green island for the three kids as we didn’t know how they would go on a boat tour, but they had a ball and we’re snorkelling for 3 hours, best snorkeling was halfway past the jetty lots of fish and coral Lunch was delicious and glad we paid the extra for it. Worth the visit!
What a great way to celebrate a birthday! The family loved the experience snorkelling with a black reef tip shark, stingrays, an octopus and cute nemos! The Marine Bio onboard the semi sub was so knowledgeable and had some great information for the children onboard, pointing out all the marine life and making learning about the GBR fun! We enjoyed the healthy lunch and the crew onboard, thank you team Big Cat. See you again very soon :)
Lovely island with great snorkeling experience. We did the half day cruise and that was enough for the experience. If you want more and time to sunbathe etc take the full day. The sea colours are amazing and the coral and fish great to see. There's also turtles further out which will really make your day if you see one. Wish we had an underwater camera.
Booked the full day green island tour with snorkel gear and vest included. There were locker facilities on the boat. We upgraded to sea safari snorkel after chatting with the Marine Biologist on boat. It was a great experience and could see the corals, fishes and tortoise. The sea was rough and caused a bit of motion sickness. Suggest the ginger pills, we were offered free ones on the boat. The safari tour guide was friendly and she even showed us the Sea cucumber during our snorkel. The safari lasted an hour. Island is small and easy to cover the full trek in short time. The food on the island is expensive and would recommend packing if required. We didn’t find snorkelling at the shallow water appealing(2 adults) since it was majority sea grass. Instead , the sea safari with the crew was indeed impressive.
