Seawalker - Green Island
Seawalker - Green Island
Only a 45 minute boat ride from Cairns is tropical Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef, home to the exciting Seawalker Experience. Get up close and personal with the colourful underwater residents of Green Island whilst taking a walk in the clear blue waters along the ocean floor.
Seawalker - Green Island
Seawalker is a fun and easy way to witness the huge variety of fish life and corals in their natural habitat without getting your hair wet or even removing your glasses. Taking no more than 60 minutes to complete your Seawalker experience you will have plenty of time to snorkel, join a glass bottom boat tour and explore this beautiful and unique island. Let your professional Seawalker guide lead you along the sandy seabed through massive schools of fish, have the moment captured by the on-site photographer and keep an eye out for Gavin the photobombing parrotfish he’s a bit of a celebrity in these parts.
Getting to Green Island for your Seawalker experience
To participate in Seawalker you need to prebook your return cruise to Green Island with Big Cat Cruises or Great Adventures to Green Island with a number of half and full day departure times to choose from. Check in at the Reef Fleet Terminal 30 – 45 minutes before departure on your fast catamaran transfer to the island. Your Seawalker crew members will meet you either aboard your transfer vessel or at the Seawalker counter located on the island to assist you with your underwater adventure.
After an informative guest briefing your Seawalker team will accompany you to the shallow clear waters of Green Island’s beach to take a small shuttle boat out to the anchored Seawalker Australian Support Diving Vessel located just 3 minutes offshore. Look out for Green Turtles surfacing for a breath or the fins of small reef sharks (they don’t like humans) and rays circling the bait balls during your ride out. On arrival your friendly crew will assist you with donning your helmet, weight belt and simply climbing down a ladder 4 – 5 metres to the sea floor. Once your feet are planted firmly on the soft sand stroll through the hundreds of bright coloured fish including the vibrant parrotfish, surgeon fish and fusiliers that swim so close you could touch them. Seawalker’s anchored vessel has been positioned right next to coral reef ensuring you enjoy all the Great Barrier Reef has to offer during your 15-20 minute underwater experience. A professional underwater photographer will be on hand to capture your memories and you can view them afterwards at the Seawalker office on the island.
You do not need any prior experience to join this fantastic activity under the sea. Non- swimmers and swimmers alike can enjoy the Seawalker adventure, a great way to gain confidence in the water with a highly trained guide by your side at all times. The helmet keeps your hair and face completely dry allowing guests to wear glasses or contacts during the underwater walk. A short medical questionnaire will need to be completed before your Seawalker experience as there are some conditions that may exclude you from the activity. Please contact a Tour Specialist for further information. Children over 12 years may participate in the Seawalker activity.
...And more excitment
If you thought doing Seawalker was exciting then we highly recommend you go to the Outer Barrier Reef with Great Adventures cruises and have a go on the under water scooters called Scuba Doo. Again this is a perfect activity if you are a non-swimmer or a non-scuba diver but wish to see the reef from under the water’s surface just like the fish do. Please note there are only 9 spaces available each day so you must pre-book your Scuba Doo when you book your Great Adventures reef tour.
If you’re going to the reef we highly recommend hiring an underwater camera so you can capture all the amazing things you see in high quality photos or videos. Show your friends and family back home the amazing and colourful underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef, keeping your precious memories safe for a lifetime. With lots of colourful fish, turtles, hard and soft corals, sharks and more on the reef, there is so much to take photos of! Get a selfie with friendly fish or maybe capture the next award winning National Geographic image! SUWC have a range of cameras to suit your budget and needs. Every camera rental comes with a FREE SD card for you to take home. Cameras can also be delivered direct to your accommodation to make things as easy as possible for you!
