Great day! Kind staff. Small issue with booking. Super price!

Issues putting infant in the deal. Was told the cruise company would have no problem adding her. Staff at the counter said we were lucky to add her. Contact the company directly to confirm. Snorkel equipment worked well. Unfortunately, we missed the glass bottom boat. Saw a turtle and shark off jetty upon leaving.

Day trip to Green Island with glass bottom boat; overall great experience, relaxing, staff great.

My day trip to Green Island with the glass bottom boat was truly memorable. The experience was incredibly relaxing, with stunning views of the vibrant marine life beneath us. The staff were exceptional, providing informative commentary and ensuring everyone's safety and comfort throughout the journey. I highly recommend this excursion for anyone looking to unwind and explore the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef.

Green Island, glass bottom boat and snorkelling trip

It was nothing like the photos online. I was expecting something magical and was very let down. The place is dirty and stinks, we see some fish while snorkelling. The food on the island was so overpriced. The fish wasn’t even fresh, the cocktails for $20 and gross! My kids loved it so that’s a bonus but when you're spending so much money and you can’t even get a beach recliner in that, it’s a joke.
