We were so looking forward to our visit to he Great Barrier Reef, The crew on board were very nice but the air conditioned cabin was too small for the number of guests and we were forced to sit outside, this 45 minutes combined with the line-up pre boarding and 5 hours on the island in the heat was a...

Took this trip excited for our snorkelling. Staff on board were great and everything was organised well. However, most of the coral on the island is dead!! We did Fitzroy island 2 days later and saw so so much more and the difference in the coral was unbelievable. We looked back at our go pro videos from both to compare... More

So we took a cruise to Green Island for a full day, all was great, wonderful place to visit. On our return however it was impossible finding a seat because multiple rows of seats had been reserved, yet on the brochure, it clearly states seats cannot be reserved. Advised staff and pointed them to the brochure, yet they still kept... More

We visited Green Island back in 2008, and it didn't disappoint on our return today. We decided to do the half day tour with the semi-sub and glass bottom boat. We have hit the wet season and the humidity is intense for anyone not used to it and the sub even with its AC was hot, so I recommend you... More

WE bought the submarine and full day tour no buffet. It was a perfect day. the submarine allowed us to see sea life that was in other parts of the island unassailable, Then the full day allowed ample time to snorkel and have a great day! I rented the wet suit (I didn't get burned) I also rented a life... More

Took my grand daughter on the half day trip. Boat ride both ways was enjoyable in the air conditioning. On the Island we visited the Crocodile show,the highlight for my granddaughter was stroking a young croc, we were not carrying cash so she was unable to hold the young croc. Have to see Cassius who weighs 1300kg and is over... More

Check in at reef terminal pretty painless. Transported to green island on ferry not a big catamaran as told. Green island small island with tiny beaches lots of people porr facilities such as old sun beds etc. Very commercialised. Only spent two hours here which was enough. This included glass bottom boat tour which was too short and didn't take... More

We spent a day here as it is significantly cheaper than the tours that take you out on further reefs with smaller boats. You can do your own snorkeling but what you see if nothing special. In retrospect I would have spent more money for a real reef experience; you get what you paid for.
