(2,566 reviews)

We had a spectacular time at Green Island, I would definitely recommend it! The snorkelling is absolutely gorgeous. The guides on the boat were really informative and gave us great advice about what to do on the island, and we ended up getting the boat snorkelling add-on which I would definitely recommend (it just means they take you out on a boat a bit further out than what you can access for snorkelling from the shoreline). It was spectacular, we saw such beautiful coral and marine life, the highlight being a gorgeous green turtle! What a great way to spend a day on the reef!

Excellent day! The crew was friendly and efficient. They worked synchronized to make sure everything was ready for the passengers. I’m not a great swimmer and have never snorkeled before. One crew member accompanied me on the water the whole time in both places. The great barrier is gorgeous. It’s worth the price to see. Great experience.

Amazing day out! Something to do for everyone. We had German Mark for our Army duck tour and he was excellent, very funny and knowledgeable.

Steve was a great guide. Overall a very nice tour, well organised and ticked off all the highlights

From the boat, to the crew to the reef and activities it was absolutely amazing all around!
