Cruise/Fly/Cruise | 10 Or 15 Minute Scenic Helicopter Flight On Green Island | GBR

Cruise by boat with Great Adventures to Cairns closest tropical island paradise Green Island. This comfortable catamaran will have you there in around 45 minutes to begin your day of underwater adventure. With your Green Island cruise you can add either a 10 or 15 minute scenic helicopter flight over the island and the amazing coral reef that surrounds it. See the Great Barrier Reef in all its magnificence from above the water as well as snorkelling and diving it below. This low level helicopter flying allows you to see all the coral formations that look like intricate lace patterns purposely placed under the water’s surface. If you fly between the months of July-September you may also see the frolicking giant Humpback Whales on their annual migration.

Make sure your camera is charged and you have a spare memory card! You will take hundreds of pictures from the Helicopter and at tropical Green Island. The most spectacular scenery! You can also combine your Green Island Helicopter package to include the outer reef, see GBR Helicopter’s Green Island/Norman Reef package for more information on the ultimate Great Barrier Reef experience. Should you wish to add in the optional extras like scuba diving, seawalker and more we suggest you call the Cairns Tour Specialists team so they may co-ordinate the day for you as each tour is provided by a different tour operator and it can be complicated to combine all tours.
