Sail with only a maximum of 25 guests to an exclusive Great Barrier Reef site, just 1km off the beautiful tropical Green Island. Departing from Cairns daily, this day tour offers the most personal reef and island experience in Cairns. Enjoy four and a half hours of reef and island time to snorkel or (dive if the option is chosen). Then, enjoy a large fresh smorgasbord lunch with seafood, watch a fish feed with the marine park approval and then take a quick tender trip across to the island where you can take a stroll on the white coral sands, relax, take a dip in the shallow waters, or visit Marineland Melanesia (entrance fee excluded) and see a crocodile feed in captivity. After enjoying the reef and island, you will sail home with the crew serving you wine and cheese platters on your journey home.
