The complete Green Island tour & Great Barrier Reef tour combo in one day awaits with this exciting cruise! A fast 45-minute catamaran ride across the Coral Sea from Cairns will take you to beautiful Green Island to enjoy two hours on this unique reef and rainforest coral cay. A day of adventure and discovery continues onto Great Adventures’ spacious activity platform moored on the majestic Outer Great Barrier Reef. From the activity platform, guests of all ages, swimmers and non-swimmers can enjoy a magical day on one of nature’s wonders. With the air-conditioned semi-submersible and underwater observatory, you don’t even have to get wet to discover the reef. Snorkel directly off the platform amongst beautiful coral gardens and colourful marine life, or just relax on the sundeck with a delicious buffet lunch and enjoy the amazing marine-scape! Exciting optional activities include scuba diving, guided snorkel tours, the exclusive Scuba-Doo underwater scooter and scenic helicopter flights to see the reef from a different perspective.
Fantastic day! I would highly recommend this to any traveller.
Fantastic day! The food was great, and the staff were attentive. Stopped in at Green Island for 2 hours. Time went super fast, so it's probably best to have a plan on what you would like to do before you get off. Would recommend once you reach to pontoon grab a table first. Highly recommend.
Worth the trip, lots to see and do. Semi-submersible was my highlight.
We really enjoyed Green Island and the Greater Barrier Reef. The pontoon was simple but had the semi-submersible, underwater viewing, snorkelling and even scuba diving. The sub was amazing and let you view everything and stay dry. Snorkelling was perfect with lots of fish to see. The only bad bit was we had a really windy day so rough seas, still worth the trip.
The snorkelling was fantastic and the crew were awesome
The reef itself was fantastic and the crew getting us there was awesome, but the journey itself was insanely rough with bad weather conditions, to no fault of the crews. It would have been nice to have some ambient music playing in the background to mask the sound of people vomiting all around us! As for the food options, it's disappointing that an ecotourism company with great conservationist values had barely any food without animal products. More eco-friendly food options would have been great. Aside from this, I would definitely recommend this to a friend, but would tell them to bring some headphones (and a sandwich) for the journey!
