The Green Island Eco Tour By Catamaran From Cairns tour offers the three daily departures, which gives you the choice of a full day or a half-day adventure. Whichever option you select, you will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the Reef Fleet Terminal, at Spence Street in Cairns. Here you will board an air-conditioned fast catamaran for a cruise to the Green Island. This takes approximately 45 minutes (depending on the weather conditions.)
Morning tea and coffee will be served on board the vessel before departure from Cairns.
Green Island is a 12-hectare coral cay set in a 710-hectare reef bed just about 30 kilometers from Cairns. For its beauty and rich wildlife it was declared a national park as long ago as 1937. It is an idyllic spot for diving and snorkeling, exploring the rainforest, or simply lazing away the day on glorious white-sand beaches.
When you arrive at Green Island a range of fun activities await you. You could stroll through the rich rainforest on a self-guided Eco Island Walk, laze on the coral sands, or splash in the clear blue waters. The Island’s swimming pool is also available to guests who book on this tour.
Plus this tour gives you the option of snorkeling among an amazing assortment of tropical fish and coral gardens (fins, mask and snorkel provided), or taking a trip in a glass-bottomed boat to view the multi-hued life of the Great Barrier Reef.
At the end of the tour, you will sail back to Reef Fleet Terminal and will then be dropped back at your hotel.
