One of the seven natural wonders of the world – the Great Barrier Reef definitely demands a deeper day-long immersion (or submersion). This tour comes equipped with a catamaran cruise to Green Island, snorkelling gear, serious snacks and a great introduction to all kinds of under-the-sea action.

Start your day by boarding a catamaran and curling up with a cup of hot tea or coffee. Speed off for the quick 45-minute cruise to the 6000 year-old coral cay of Green Island. The best of both worlds, this Marine National Park offers lush rainforest jungles above the water and vivid coral gardens below.

On the island, take advantage of world-class snorkelling, explore the surrounding flora and fauna, or simply laze on the pristine white-sand beaches. Next, cruise to an exclusive outer reef activity platform, a spacious, floating pontoon where a myriad of water adventures await. Head to the underwater observatory for an intimate look at the local marine inhabitants, or don your snorkel gear and dive in for a more personal introduction.

Savour a delicious buffet lunch, then hop into a semi-submersible vessel for another up-close view of the vast and varied species that call the area home, before finishing your day over cheese and biscuits while you sail back to Cairns.

Way too crowded. People were jumping in line, pushing & shoving. Green Island itself is a resort with cash grabs at every turn. Once on the pontoon, I loved snorkelling, but would never do this tour again. Given that many other guests do not speak English, I would recommend that the company hire staff who speak Chinese to help explain the process on before boarding the boat.
