Amazing coral reef experience. Glass bottom boat ride was the best. Saw all sorts of coral and fish.

We went as a family of 6 and it was amazing. The kids loved the snorkeling and the glass-bottom boat ride. We saw so many colourful corals and fish. We even saw a 6-arm electric blue starfish. The Green Island tour was certainly the highlight of our Cairns trip.

Green Island Full Day Adventure & Discovery Full Dsy.

We purchased the Green Island Day Adventure tickets via Experience Oz, it was easy to purchase and at a great price. The experience was absolutely amazing, friendly staff on the boat to the island, and great staff at the island also. We went on the glass bottom boat which was spectacular. We also went snorkeling which was fantastic. Highly recommend this experience. We will be back again.

Family of 5, had the most amazing day, highly recommend it!

Highly recommend Experience Oz for a wonderful day spent on Green Island! Booking was incredibly easy, the whole process was well-communicated and our day was phenomenal! Our 2 daughters and I all got seasick and the staff were wonderful on the transfers over to the island. We toured Marineland Crocodile Park and were lucky enough to meet and speak with founder George Craig, a wonderful man who was keen to share his stories with our kids about his incredibly interesting life. Finishing out our day snorkelling, we had heard that the surrounding area would be disappointing and full of sea grass but just a couple of metres further was an abundance of beautiful corals and a stunning wild turtle! Definitely one of the best days of our holiday!
