Excellent place to spend a day a the beach and do some snorkeling. The helicopter tour is something not to miss, you will see the Reefs and they are amazing.

My husband and I came on a day trip and the island is very beautiful but everything is so expensive and a restaurant service and food was very poor, there is a lot of things that you can do here

You can rent all the snorkeling and scuba gear you could need right in the first plaza on the island, and the best place to snorkel is right by the pier. At literally any time of day, you'll find green turtles and black tip reef sharks and colorful little triggerfish. As soon as you put your mask down in the... More

The trip from cairns on a big cat is fun and probably the highlight of our day. There are plenty of activities you can book once there such as parra sailing but snorkel or glass bottom boat cruise are generally included. Beach is good for a swim. We chose to eat in the restaurant and we were very disappointed. Service... More

We enjoyed a relaxing day on Green Island. We tried the Glass Bottom Boat, Snorkeling and Sun baking. You could spend a fortune here as there are so many optional extras available. Watch out for the birds - look away for a split second and they will have your food.

Great boat ride and can be quite bumpy! Don't eat on this boat ride lol! It takes about an hour and half or so to get there. You arrive on the dock and can eat on a larger boat that is docked there when you arrive and then walk or snorkel hire etc.
