Did not disappoint. Plenty of information of where you're able to snorkel.

We signed up last minute to do the snorkel tour as we wanted to guarantee we saw the most we could. This was not disappointing. We were taken out to the far reefs and given an hour to snorkel around at our own pace. Plenty of staff around, should you need help. The transfer from Cairns to Green Island and back was comfortable, onboard snacks and bar and overall a great experience.

Perfect runaway island to escape to, professional & friendly staff. Not much variety of food though.

It was such a great island to runaway to! Love how secluded and peaceful it was. The current of the waters were strong when we were there but the staff still made sure it was still worth a trip to snorkel as she pointed out where there were. In the whole trip, we saw a decent number of all range of sea creatures up close! - sharks, turtles and clownfishes!

Great day trip from Cairns with easy access to amenities, pool, reefs and further trips.

Great day trip from Cairns. Friendly staff and easy to access beaches, reefs, amenities and shops. We went on the boat reef tour as an extra and got to see a great reef and some turtles from the boat. Recommend if you are looking to see reefs and lots of water life.
