Spend a half day morning or spend a half day afternoon snorkelling, shopping, beachcombing, scuba diving, or watching pre-historic crocodiles being fed on Green Island. This is the closest island to Cairns and with our Great Adventures Cruises you and your family could be there in only 45 minutes on our comfortable high speed catamarans. For your convenience we have 3 different ferry departure times to choose from during the day heading out to the reef. Green Island is as it states a lush green atoll that has been built up over the years with birds dropping seeds and the oceans currents sending in coconuts and other native trees for the island to become lush and inviting with its white beaches and blue azure waters that surround. This is Cairns most popular island and most popular half day reef trip.
