Day Trips - Green Island Discovery

Full Day

Great Adventures Green Island Diving at Green Island Green Island Dive Tender

With Great Adventures Green Island Discovery, you can enjoy a whole day on Green Island and experience the fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef. 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.

This is the fastest trip to Green Island taking just 45 minutes aboard a fast catamaran so you have more time to enjoy this beautiful island - up to 7 hours! The Green Island Discovery includes both snorkelling equipment and an informative glass bottom boat tour to fully experience this beautiful Great Barrier Reef island.

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 to discover some of the island’s unique rainforest flora. The island’s well appointed day visitor facilities include a pool bar, plus food and refreshment outlets. After working up an appetite, enjoy a burger, cafe style lunch or Aussie Buffet, or just grab a snack and head back to the beach!
