Day Trips - Green Island Eco Adventure

Full or Half Day

Great Adventures Green Island Green Island Green Island Dive Tender

You can enjoy a full or half day on Green Island and experience the fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef with Great Adventures Green Island Eco Adventure. Located just 15 nautical miles (27kilometres) offshore from Cairns in Australia's World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, Green Island is a beautiful coral cay which enjoys world acclaim as a tropical paradise. Discover the fascinating underwater world among coral reefs surrounding beautiful Green Island. Part of a protected Marine Park, these waters are home to an abundance of tropical sea life where you will see endless varieties of colourful fish, turtles, giant clams, starfish, shells, anemones, eels, sponges and many more incredible marine creatures.

Tropical and enchanting Green Island is an ancient coral cay where you can relax on the beautiful white sandy beach or explore the walking tracks that lead you through the emerald island rainforest of the National Park. A coral cay is a build up of rubble and sediments from thousands of years of wave actions surrounding the reefs. Seeds and spores carried by the wind and birds has fertilized the island and enabled the growth of plant life.

Great Adventures will take you to beautiful Green Island in just 45 minutes from Cairns aboard a fast catamaran. With the choice of three daily departures, the Green Island Eco Adventure is perfect for a full day or half day trip to suit your schedule. If you are short of time and keen to visit the Great Barrier Reef during your visit to Cairns, the half day option is the trip for you!

As a Great Adventures guest, you'll also be able to enjoy many exclusive inclusions such as the use of the island swimming pool and a self guided eco island walk. The island's well-appointed day visitor facilities include a pool bar, restaurant and refreshment outlets where you can purchase lunch or enjoy a poolside drink.
