During our stay in Cairns I wanted to do a glassbottom boat tour with my wife and some snorkling myself. Given the fact that my wife uses a wheelchair, I was not able to find a feasible option myself. So I used the chat function on their website, first from home (Netherlands) as well as after our arrival in Cairns and chatted with Alicia.
She went well beyond the extra mile to find a suitable solution and proved to be extremely patient, helpful and friendly in answering all our questions. She even contacted the cruise operator and asked them for pictures of various situations on board of the ship, thus enabling us to assess these situations and make our decision.
Bottom line: the cruise was a tremendous success, we had a wonderful day and an unforgettable experience!
Many thanks again to Alicia and to all the friendly staff aboard the Big Cat for their support, you guys were awesome!!!

If it were only for the snorkling, I'd probably go for an operator who'd take me to the outer reef next time. I found Green Island a little disappointing as reef and fish were concerned.
However the friendly staff on the Big Cat went to great length to accommodate our special needs and wishes so that the overall experience for my wife and me was amazing!
Thank you guys for making this possible!!!

Thnx for your feedback on my feedback!
I'm afraid I have forgotten to mention one point in my review. And this remark is directly to be addressed to Mr. Callum Goodall:
My wife would like to advise you that in her opinion Ms Alicia Coyne has deserved an immediate pay raise!!!
And although I do not always agree with my wife, this time I fully support and second her recommendation!

Use of their email system during business hours was prompt and efficient. I booked late and our initial dates were fully booked. It was quick and easy to change days with their email.

The buffet lunch is excellent. The walk around the island is beautiful. The kids loved the zoo on the island and the crocodiles, however the entry fee is overpriced for the 10 minutes that the show is on for. A great day relaxing and swimming on the beach.

Thank you for providing your feedback. We are sorry you were unable to attend the Green Island cruise. Unfortunately when you booked two days prior to your chosen departure date the boat had in fact just filled up and your booking came before we were notified to block out availability on your date. As advised over email we refunded your payment back immediately as requested however given it was a weekend the banks don't process refunds immediately. Unfortunately we don't have any control over the bank processing time and it is for this reason we ask people to allow 3-5 working days for the funds to appear back in your account as standard procedure. You can be rest assured your refund was processed straight away and we have that record on file in our account. We are very sorry your funds took a couple of days to reach your account and that upset your plans for your partners birthday. We would like to offer you a $50 gift voucher as a measure of goodwill due to the inconvenience caused. Thanks again for getting in touch.

Did the glass bottom boat tour which was excellent and saw turtles. Didn't dosnorkelling but think we'd have been disappointed if we had as the snorkelling areas weren't great and couldn't go far enough out to seeanything good, glad we didthat on another tour to the outer reef.

Everything Travel Group Review

Green Island is the perfect location for those who prefer to be land based rather than doing an outer reef trip where you spend the entire day on a boat. After a quick 1 hour boat ride from Cairns you have 5 hours to spend on Green Island either relaxing on the beach, snorkelling or taking part in one of the many optional activities. You can also do a flight over to Green Island on board a Seaplane

Suggestions: If you dont have a full day then book either a morning or afternoon half day Cairns tour to Green Island.

Latest Questions about Green Island Reef Cruise Full Day - Big Cat

How far is your departure terminal from the Cairns Cruise Line Terminal? Is it possible to pre-book transfers directly between these two points?

Comments

Heya, So the reef fleet terminal (which is where you would meet for all of the boat trips out of Cairns) is a 8 min walk from the cruise line terminal in basically a straight line along the esplanade. If you want to have a quick check just google 'cairns cruise line terminal to cairns reef fleet terminal' it shows you how close it is. :)

the pick up options are beach or hotel, what does it mean when you are picked up at the beach? is there parking by the beach pick up areas?

Comments

Heya, I am not sure where it says you can get picked up at the beach? It may do somewhere... however you can either get picked up from your central accommodation and dropped at the marina or make your own way to the marina! It is part of the main city so only a short walk for people staying centrally. Hope this helps!

Hi, what is the difference between certified dive and introductory dive? Can I do both? Thanks.

Comments

Hi Meera, if you are certified diver it means you have your PADI dive certification ticket. If you haven't done a certified scuba dive course before then you will need to book the introductory dive which allows you to try out scuba diving under the watchful eye of a qualified guide when you are at Green Island.

BOAT SNORKEL TRIPS EXTRA $38, IS THIS INCLUDED IN GREEN ISLAND REEF CRUISE FULL DAY OR IS IT AN EXTRA ACTIVITY? HOW DO I BOOK IT?

Comments

Hi Callan,

The additonal boat snorkle trips are for people that want to be taken by boat from the island to the reef, this is an easier alternative to swiming out from the beach. It's simple an optional extra which you can choose.

Thanks,

Nigel

Hi, Would it be possible to try scuba diving on this tour with instructor and also snorkelling?

Comments

Hi Madeline. Yes you can certainly do the introductory diving on Green Island and there is plenty of time to give snorkelling a go as well. You spend about 5 hours on Green island so you wont be short of time. The diving can be booked once you get to the island so all you need to book before hand is the Cruise & Snorkel option via our website.

How long does it take to get to Green Island from Cairns?

Comments

Hi Shara. The trip to Green Island from Cairns on board Big Cat is around 1 hour (depending on weather and sea conditions). If you book the half day Green Island tour with Reef Rocket (operated by Big Cat Green Island) it only takes 45 minutes each way as its a smaller & faster boat.
