My family of five spent a beautiful day at Green Island yesterday. The Great Adventures catamaran was very comfortable and provided coffee, tea and biscuits before departure. The staff were lovely and very informative. Green Island itself was great with a few shops, toilets and a large resort pool. We all absolutely loved snorkelling off the beach. We saw lots of coral, stingrays, reef sharks, giant clams and hundreds of different types of fish. We chose to do the glass bottom boat tour which we all loved as well. The kids were so excited to see sea turtles and and an olive sea snake plus more coral and fish. We would have loved to go see Cassius the crocodile but we felt it was too expensive for what it was and the amount of time we had left. We finished off our day by a jump in the pool and an ice-cream. Overall we had an amazing time and we would definitely recommend to others!

Absolutely amazing!!! Me and my partner did snorkelling at Green island and we have had an awesome experience. We have seen so many colourful fish, 3 tortoises, 1 reef shark and 1 big sting ray. We would love to do it again. Green Island is a wonderful piece of heaven for overseas visitors.

We had an easy time booking, lots of people. The glass bottom boat ride should have been OK except the old driver was very rude, especially to the kids, not acknowledging or even answering questions nor answering when he was thanked for the ride.

We had an amazing day at green island, starting from the amazing ferry ride to the island and then the glass bottom boat to view the corals. Did snorkling but the best would be if you go to the outer reef for the same. Not many varities here. Could not find Nemo. Then the star attraction was crocodille feeding. OMG. Just amazing. Feeding the lazy cassisus (can't complain for a 110 year old) or holding the baby croc cuddle. That was amazing. Thx again for the wonderful trip. Cheers

We had a good trip to Green Island from Cairns. The crew members were friendly. Would have preferred if the wait was not too long to get into the cruise.
