This was the highlight of my stay in the far north. I highly recommend the Great Adventures reef and green island. You take the reef king to green island and you have the time scheduled for the glass bottom boat the rest of the time you are free to explore the island. You can

Response from QSGA, Guest Relations Manager at Green Island Discovery Including Glass Bottom Boat Tour Departing Cairns
Responded 18 Feb 2020
Hi msdal, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your time with us. We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your time and experience on Green Island. Green Island is a fantastic destination for families and non-swimmers, due to the additional, dry activities available, such as glass-bottom boats and the crocodile park. There are some excellent swimming spots off the Island, but you need to get past the seagrass (a primary food source for the Green Sea Turtles who inhabit the Island). We are sorry again that you didn't enjoy your time with us. Kind regards, Team QSG
