WHAT TO EXPECT

Green Island is a beautiful 6000-year-old coral cay located in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park – a premier world heritage site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The island is approximately 12 hectares in size and is unique in that it has a reef and rainforest environment. Of the 300 coral cays in the Great Barrier Reef, Green Island is the only one with a rainforest. It's also home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including 55 species of birds, nearly 300 kinds of corals, plus sea turtles, fish, and dugongs. 

 

Aboard the fast catamaran from Cairns, your journey to the Great Barrier Reef takes only 45 minutes! Surrounded by a reef filled with diverse marine life, and home to a unique rainforest environment, Green Island awaits to provide you with a memorable holiday experience. Take part in some of the activities that the island has to offer or relax on the beach and let your day unfold in this tropical paradise. Stroll through magical rainforest, laze on white coral sand beaches, or swim in the refreshing waters.

 

This tour includes a choice of snorkel equipment hire, so you can discover the fringing reef from below the water's surface, or a glass-bottom boat tour if you prefer to stay dry and see the coral from above. 

 

You can also make use of the island facilities, and enjoy a self-guided eco walk around the island. With a circumference of just 1.6km, Green Island is home to over 120 species of plants, including a unique mixture of coastal and rainforest plants. 

 

Once you've strolled dry land, it's time to take a walk on the ocean floor! The Seawalker helmet is a unique and fun experience where the expert guides show you wonders of the reef as you stroll along the lagoon’s seafloor. It's easy, with no special skills required; safe and great for non-swimmers or anyone who isn't confident in the water; and low stress, with no complex equipment.

 

When you book, you can choose from various departure times from Cairns, and Green Island, meaning you can spend up to 7 hrs on the island, depending on what suits your itinerary. The Seawalker activity is scheduled for 12:00 pm, 2:30 pm, or 4:30 pm.

Yes, Green Island is situated in the Inner part of the Great Barrier Reef.

Hopefully not. Our large, stable fast catamarans provide very good sea keeping even in rougher ocean conditions. Where there is motion, whether a car, bus, plane or boat, some people will suffer from motion sickness. Motion sickness tablets are available onboard for purchase. We offer ginger tablets as a natural alternative motion sickness medication on a complimentary basis. To be effective, motion sickness medications should be taken immediately upon boarding. If you are concerned about potential motion sickness, being closer to the coast, Green Island is a shorter 45-minute journey and is more protected than a cruise to the Outer Reef.

We recommend you bring your own towel. We do have limited towels available for hire however we cannot guarantee availability. These can be collected from the Pool Bar on Green Island.

Standard masks magnify objects underwater by about 25%. We do have prescription masks up to -8.0 available. If you need a prescription mask, please advise us so we can make sure one is available for you as we have a limited supply, especially in the higher prescription strengths. These are hired from the Dive Shop on the Green Island.

At certain times of the year (generally November – April), jellyfish, commonly called marine stinger’s, can affect the seas of Northern Australia. Most jellyfish are harmless to man, however certain varieties may cause a serious reaction. Incidents involving serious marine stings in this area are extremely rare. Our crew are conscious of the danger of marine stingers and will take appropriate steps to ensure your protection if they believe conditions are such that there is a possibility of encountering these creatures. Lycra suits are available for hire onboard to reduce the possibility of stings and irritations while also offering protection from the sun.
