Your flight departs from Cairns Airport and gives you the kind of appreciation of the reef that you can only get from the air. Make sure your camera is fully charged as you soar over Green Island, Arlington, Oyster, Hastings and Michaelmas reefs – the views are amazing! Guaranteed you have the best possible photo opportunities as everyone will have a window seat.
Your friendly and experienced pilot will provide the in-flight commentary, letting you know which reefs are you currently passing and pointing out the marine life such as dolphins, sharks, rays, sea turtles and whales. Professional commentary and local knowledge is sure to make your scenic flight experience even more enjoyable.
After your flight and complimentary bus transfer you will find yourself at the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal, ready to depart on a full day adventure cruise for your Green Island tour. Your transfer vessel is a fast and modern “Reef Rocket” catamaran which takes you to Green Island within 45 minutes.
Once on the island you can choose between snorkelling and glass bottom boat tour or even add semi-submarine tour for a little extra.
Other optional activities available on the island are parasailing, helmet diving, introductory and certified diving, scenic helicopter flights, boat snorkel trips and Marineland Melanesia nautical museum with the biggest captive crocodile Cassius.
Although there are several cafés and restaurants on the island, buffet lunch is included on your comfortable and air-conditioned catamaran which can be used as your cool and comfortable “base” throughout your stay on the island.
After 4 exciting hours on Green Island it is time to head back to Cairns. It takes just 45 minutes to cruise back, catching the last rays of sun and warm breezes on the sundeck or sipping cold drinks in the air-conditioned cabin.
It is a great time to look through the photos of your day, purchase some souvenirs and perhaps ask some last questions about the island and marine life from the crew. Drop off to your accommodation is not included but is available at a small extra cost.
