Beautiful nature, magical place but shame about the customer service and awful food
Honor_R

Stunning natural majestic Green Island and GB Reef - but the food was awful and very limited. The ‘lack of staff due to covid’ is getting a bit stale, what happened to preparation and planning? No accurate info given on the island, I felt like a nuisance to the snorkeling equipment staff because I asked how to use (I was travelling with a 7 yr old who was so keen and excited). We made the most of the amazingly beautiful natural environment- the island customer service let down the ‘people’ side of things. Not enough indigenous people as well.

Very well organized, very friendly crew. We've seen many highlights on the great barrier reef and the the way back to Cairns the captain slowed down because there was a whale nearby so we had the opportunity to take photo's.

Whales on the way there where great, mum with bub the boat stopped for photos. Glass bottom boat well worth the money, lots of fish and coral. The crocodile show was a highlight especially Cassius such a large crock 110 years old wow. We ent for a walk around the island, tide was on the way out such a relaxing walk, important you wear shoes not the best on your feet in places.

Green Island is delightful. The trip on the boat was a bit rough due to strong winds but great when we arrived. The island was quiet and clean and the waters crystal clear. Very pretty. The glass bottom boat was a highlight.

GreAt option w a toddler

Very lucky that the weather was perfect for us. We went with a toddler so didn’t expect too much but managed ti have a great time and explore the reef on our own terms. I would have liked the glass bottom boat tour to have been longer. We were able to come home on the 2.30 boat when I accidentally booked for 4.30. 6 hours is plenty unless you’re gung go snorkelling the whole time. Couple of things to note- the tide was extremely low at 1.30 so it was a long wade out over sea grass but we could see the coral outcrops to walk to and those spots were magical. The pool was FREEZING!!! We hired a beach chair on the beach section which was pricey but worth it especially if spending a long time there

A disappointing day at Green Island
David_C
, Jul 2022
We were told that the ride would be moderate to rough. We should have been given the option to cancel at that point. The ride was rough. Got soaked and frozen walking from the jetty to the island. The glass bottom boat ride was very choppy and visibility was limited due to rough conditions. To rough and cold to snorkel. Short boardwalk was OK but wet and cold. Spent most of the time in the shelter. For a fairly expensive excursion it was extremely disappointing.

We loved the green island day trip! The island was beautiful and relaxing and the glass bottom boat was awesome. We were lucky enough to go to a sunny day, and would not have enjoyed it if it was raining.

Disappointing
Lynnette_D
, Jul 2022
Failed safety instructions on way over. All life preservers apparently inside cabin, but many more seats outside and upstairs. Food ran out before lunch at one kiosk so long wait (and over price) at other. Glass bottom boat should have been 30 minutes but arrive late and finished early it was only almost 20 minutes. Skipper let young children drive boat, so going over sand not reef and when he controlled not hovering over reef to look properly. Not good enough.
