Everyone loves a day trip to Green Island; it’s just perfect for all age groups from babies to grandmas and grandpas. Lots to do and see, plenty of shade, swimming pool, shops and restaurants. We highly recommend you spend a lazy day on this gorgeous little island. We love it as locals and love to spend the whole weekend over here as a little getaway. Best value reef trip in Cairns! Make sure you go and see the huge crocodile and turtles at Marineland Melanesia you will love it.

What an amazing day! Absolutely loved the big cat ride out to/coming back from Green Island. The island is quite special. Highlight for me is swimming in the waters... so clear, fresh and a gorgeous turquoise 'paradise' colour. A place I will never forget and will definately return to.

To sit above deck and feel the reef breeze riding along the Coral Sea, was the best feeling. Snorkelling is something I will try next time. Marineland Melanesia was nice to look through, the croc show was the highlight there! Lovely to see crocs looking relaxed!




Response from The Tour Specialists

Had a great day here. Green Island is lovely and Melanesian Marineland was terrific as well. Would highly recommend a visit. Trip across on the Big Cat was very quick and most enjoyable.



Response from The Tour Specialists
Hi Kerrie, Big Cat Cruises- Green Island is a great way to experience not only great snorkelling but also the largest crocodile in captivity- Cassius as the star of the show at Marineland Melanesia

The trip was great. The ride over was very comfortable and there were drinks for sale on the boat. The island itself was beatiful and we chose to go snorkeling. The equipment was conveniently provided and we saw some beautiful fish. Would definitely recommend this trip for the price.



Response from The Tour Specialists
We are delighted you enjoyed your day on Green Island. Being a short 45 minute ferry ride from Cairns city, make it ideal for a half or full day snorkelling tour or just to relax on the beach. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Great Barrier reef again soon

We did enjoy the semi submarine and walk track around the island. But we have no luck with snorkeling as it was low tide.
