The complete reef and island experience in one day awaits with this exciting cruise! A fast 45 minute catamaran ride across the Coral Sea from Cairns will take you to beautiful Green Island to enjoy two hours on this unique reef and rainforest coral cay. A day of adventure and discovery continues onto Great Adventures’ spacious activity platform moored on the majestic Outer Great Barrier Reef.

From the activity platform, guests of all ages, swimmers and non-swimmers can enjoy a magical day on one of nature’s wonders. With the air-conditioned semi-submersible and underwater observatory, you don’t even have to get wet to discover the reef. Snorkel directly off the platform amongst beautiful coral gardens and colourful marine life, or just relax on the sundeck with a delicious buffet lunch and enjoy the amazing marine-scape!

Exciting optional activities include scuba diving, guided snorkel tours, the exclusive Scuba-Doo underwater scooter and scenic helicopter flights to see the reef from a different perspective.

Wonderful experience, beautiful coral and fishies. Enjoyed the trip to Green Island. The crocodile park and show was interesting and gave us an insight to the majestic creatures lurking in the deep creeks, rivers and oceans. Scary! Able to get up close and personal with the crocs. The food was incredible and so tasty. Our snorkelling experience was fantastic and the staff were so helping and friendly. Overall we had a fantastic family experience that we will cherish and treasure in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

Fantastic day out, great weather and wonderful staff!

Very well organised trip, staff were helpful, friendly and professional. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea were included with informative presentation. Beautiful reef and stunning weather. Thank you for a wonderful day and we all had a wonderful time.

I had the BEST day and swam with a turtle! Absolutely incredible!

Green Island was beautiful and broke up the trip for our one-year-old and three-year-old, but the outer reef was easily one of the greatest experiences of my life (and I have lightly traveled the world) I highly recommend this trip and this group they are so lovely.

Best tour ever, worth every cent, would do it again in a heartbeat.
Vanessa Capone 5 months ago

Staff were helpful, knowledgeable, and super friendly. Facilities and equipment were clean, fresh, and aplenty. The snorkeling experience was amazing, so many beautiful, colorful fish and coral. We were lucky enough to also see a turtle and reef shark, thankfully this was from the safety of the semisubmersible sub. Once in a lifetime experience, but will definitely snorkel the GBR again if the opportunity arises.

Amazing, loved it, would recommend to anyone visiting Cairns.

Amazing day despite the weather the staff are amazingly helpful and attentive first time I’ve snorkelled and seen the Great Barrier Reef and really enjoyed every moment. I would recommend this experience to everyone with family's with children and all ages accessibility!

Great day out snorkelling around the reef, ideal day to experience the reef.
Blake Wilson 5 months ago

The day out was ideal. The time spent at both Green Island and the outer reef was about right, and the staff went out of their way to be of assistance. The boat was modern and fast. We had young children with us, and they could join in. The semi-submersible at the outer reef was great. Top rated.

Must visit place in Cairns! Green Island and reef tour at once made everything perfect.

Absolutely wonderful experience with these guys. The crew were amazing and very helpful. Food was amazing, staff were very informative and helpful with whatever people need. The fast cat to Green Island was very smooth. Green Island was beautiful and relaxing. Thanks for a wonderful day guys.

Take advantage of all the INCLUDED activities once out at the reef platform to take in the reef from all angles. These activities included the semi-submersible, underwater observatory, reef education presentations and more.
