Green Island Day Trip from Cairns

We upgraded to the sub and glass bottomed boat tour. Worth every penny.

This trip was exceptional. I recommend skipping the buffet lunch on the boat and saving money for renting beach chairs and umbrella. The island has a few eateries you can grab food from without having to battle long queues on the boat. And I know 30 AU seems steep for two deck chairs and a umbrella, but it's WELL worth it whilst out on the reef. We loved snorkeling here... we spotted three turtles, a sting ray, tons of fish and even saw a bit of a black-tipped coral reef shark from the glass bottom boat tour. Note - the boat tour is NOT in the same area as the swimmers. I felt perfectly safe snorkeling here. We enjoyed this tour so much, we wished we had more time here.

Great full day tour, loved it especially the snorkelling. It was good to have a choice of adding more options on the day like the helicopter or scuba diving. Very worth while and affordable with a great lunch included the only slow bit was the ride back.

Enjoyed this trip. Was amazing to see the difference of the water level from the time we arrived to the time we left with the tide going out. By end of trip, could get clear pics of reef from pier because of low tide. Took pics of sting ray, shark and the many fish, I totally recommend the lunch option and submersible sub. It was well worth it.

My husband and I had a lovely day but as we don't swim in hindsight it would have been better to only book the half day trip that goes in the faster boat as the big boat took over an hour to get there. We did the glass bottom boat to look at the reef and the feeding of the fish which was pretty amazing. Had a lovely lunch in the restaurant but there are a couple of other options.
We didn't have hotel pickup because we were very close to the Terminal, so one thing you need to know is you need to take your Viator print out to the Terminal to get the boat ticket, we did this the night before so we would not have to line up the next morning when it was busy.
