What you can expect

Spend half the day exploring the beautiful Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef with a half day tour departing Cairns at 9am. Aboard the 'Reef Rocket', you'll make your way over to Green Island, a coral cay on the reef which is just a short 45 minute journey from the mainland.

Once you've reached the island you'll be able to enjoy a total of 2hrs 15mins exploring the tropical rainforest on the island and the reef surrounding. Guests will also be given the choice of snorkelling equipment to use during your stay on the island or a ride on the glass bottom boat (excludes Transfer Only option) to see the reef from a dry, comfortable position.

Tours will return to Cairns by 12:45pm, giving you more than enough time to explore more of the region's popular attractions. Book your half day tour to Green Island departing at 9am online today to avoid missing out.

45 min trip across leaving plenty of time to walk around the island, go for a swim, and go on the glass bottom boat.

The trip was a bit rough across and the staff were excellent in taking care of a number of sick passengers. The hosts were very friendly and spent time with the passengers. The half-day trip was enough to walk around the island, go for a swim and go on the glass bottom boat. Overall a good trip and recommend it to anyone contemplating going over.
