What people are saying about Cairns

This is an excellent tour, including service, activities and lunch.

Upon arrival at Green Island you have several optional activities available -- swimming, snorkelling, shopping, submarine, etc. It's up to you. The tour includes about one hour in a glass bottom boat -- excellent. Also, you can have lunch for AUD$20. A great experience!

Green Island Reef Full-Day Catamaran Cruise Reviewed by Allan, 03/14/2018

This was an excellent 2-day activity - well organised and well run.

We were taken 50k out to the Outer Barrier Reef for good snorkeling. The catamaran was well equipped with everything required and there were plenty of staff to provide support and guidance for snorkeling. I hadn't thought about a waterproof casing for my phone to take pictures while snorkeling but I was able to buy it on the boat - I recommend you go prepared as you will want to record the beautiful fish and coral that you swim around. When it came to the rain-forest trip the next day, we were surprised not to have a tour-guide accompany us on the train to get to Kuranda Village, they left us at the station and told us what to do. But we were fine without a guide. We were dropped at the station 1.5 hrs before time for the train, this seemed rather early. At the half-way station on the way down by SkyRail the whole system had to stop (for safety) due to a thunder storm with lightening. No-one was left dangling and we were kept informed and given bottles of water, it was well managed.

I would recommend it to my friends, without hesitation

Friendly and helping crew, an option for scuba experience for unexperienced (fantastic, thanks), expert knowledge what to look at on the Reef and plentiful food.

Such a great experience! Nice Crew! Nice food! Nice locations!

I dived adittionally at the first location. It was a very nice experience, because i did it for the first time. I felt always safe because the Crew introduced us nicely what we had to be careful about during diving. I did some great pictures, so I recommend you to bring your own underwater cam or just rent one for the day. At the second location i was just snorkeling and honestly this is sufficient, because you can see everything you need to see. All in all a great trip and I can strongly recommended when you stay in Cairns!

An AWESOME intro snorkeling tour with AMAZING guides

This was an awesome introduction to the reef for my family and I. The crew that we had (Lukas, Lou, Kat, and Rodrigo) were the BEST people to have around; full of energy, life, and smiles. They do their very best in trying to make sure you're having fun and and really try to get to know you, AND remembering your name. So much that my daughter left her camera on the boat and they knew exactly who it needed to be returned to. Again, thanks again for the amazing tour. Because of you guys, we left a big part of our hearts there with you.
