per traveller Price is AU$59
Pricing based on group of 4 travellers

See the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef with a cruise to Green Island, a coral cay that hosts a lush rainforest. Spend a half-day exploring the undersea world around the island, teeming with technicolour coral and marine life.

Your journey begins aboard a high-speed catamaran that takes you to the soft, white beaches of Green Island. Along the way, listen to your guide explain the basics of snorkelling and the environment of the 6,000-year-old coral cay.

Upon arrival, step ashore to admire the turquoise waters, glittering sand and fringe of emerald palms ringing the island. You can climb into a glass-bottomed boat and lean over the railings to get an up-close look at a colourful underwater world with brilliant colonies of brain coral, orange sea stars and scores of blue damselfish flitting to and fro.

If you're craving a swim, strap on a snorkel and mask to see the sights up close. Mingle with black-and-white angelfish as they feed on sponges or look for striped clownfish nestled among anemones. Spend the rest of your time relaxing on the beach to soak up the sun before cruising back to Cairns.

Half-Day Green Island Reef Cruise ratings based on 22 Verified Reviews

4.3 out of 5

5/5 Aug 10, 2018

The ride over to the island was quite beautiful and the island itself was amazing. The glass bottom boat tour gave a great view of the reef and wildlife

5/5 May 22, 2018

We had a great time on the Green Island half day cruise, the boat ride over was great a bit rough for a few people but I loved it, the crew were good, and then on the island we went snorkeling saw fish and coral the day was a bit dull but still had a lovely time.
