Overall good, but two event spaced so closely together, thus rushed through.

The trip to Green Island was absolutely beautiful. The company (Big Cat) was friendly and provided great service. The island itself was just incredible - such beautiful views and great snorkeling. I highly recommend.



Response from The Tour Specialists
Dear Thomas,
It is great to hear that you loved the trip to Green Island! It is only a short ferry ride away and very accessible. Maybe next time you will choose to discover Fitzroy, Frankland or Low Isles!

I thoroughly enjoyed my half day trip and would enjoy visiting the island again, should I ever return to Cairns.



Response from The Tour Specialists
Thank you Sharon, we look forward to have you back snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef soon!

Enjoyed the tour, but not able to see much of the reef because of the weather conditions (windy and reef covered with sand in places) Half a day is enough time on Green Island if you're not interested in sitting on the beach/snorkelling



Response from The Tour Specialists
Hi Andrew, thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately if there is one thing we cannot control it is the weather. We are pleased you enjoyed your tour regardless and hopefully we can see you again in Cairns and on the Great Barrier Reef with the perfect conditions we are used to.
