    What a great trip. We had already been to Fitzroy in January so we decided to do Green island this trip. The staff were fantastic. The boat has a small bar with soft drinks $3 and packets of chips, ice cream etc. a marine biologist gave a great talk about the island and the reasons behind the bird life (yes there was bird poo around however it wasn’t too bad and I didn’t find any smell) and you really need to ignore it as it’s what keeps the island life alive. We opted for the glass bottom boat ride as the kids had there own snorkel equipment. Snorkel equipment on the boat was free, you just needed to leave a deposit ($20/room key/ drivers license) and you get it back when you take the gear back. The stinger suits were about $10 each to hire (no refund on those). The Big Cat staff also did a fish feed which was so cool (allowable by the national parks GBR conservation area - they are allowed to feed the fish a certain amount of pilchards a day). Once on the island we headed to the right hand side of the jetty (when walking towards the island) which was not patrolled by life guards. Kids wore stinger suits, hubby and I didn’t and we had no issues. The snorkelling was amazing. We saw loads of beautiful fish, sting rays, beautiful coral. We did parasailing ($145) per person (even our 9 year old which I thought was a bit rough) which I thought was a little expensive. A good experience though. Lunch on the island was ok but expensive. See attached menu. Small meals. There are showers and toilets to wash off the salt water and a chlorine/salt pool at the resort which you can use. There’s a crocodile zoo thing to have a look at on the island but be prepared for an extra $62.50 for a family of 2A 2C.

    Green Island is a good place to visit. The ferry trip is good. I have booked online with Viator which should be including glass bottom boat with a higher price. However when I check in, they say that my trip is only having ferry return. Not including any activity. Finally they allowed us to have the glass bottom boat trip. This shows that there is some tricks in between Viator and big cat.

    An amazing trip out to Green Island. We took the 11am ferry, which is the fast ferry (takes only 45mins), and beats the other ferry home too. We went for the snorkelling/lunch/semisub options, which were handled from the main cat based out at the island. The crew on the fast were great, and got us setup with snorkelling gear, lifejackets for the little ones so they could snorkel, stinger suits etc. This ferry goes back and forth, so once we arrived at Green Island, we setup on the bigger cat. The trip itself was great, and the Big Cat staff told us the best places to snorkel (basically - straight off the jetty). Lunch was a buffet, and lots of food to eat. The semi submersible tour was stunning, with plenty of fish and coral. We also saw a couple of turtles and reef sharks on the semi sub tour as well. During our snorkelling time we saw plenty of colourful reef fish, about 10 turtles, and coral. I would definitely come back out to Green Island, on the Big Cat day tours.

    We did half day trip in morning and added snorkelling! Was awesome! Staff very friendly the boat was clean and spacious. Comfortable ride to island in 45mins. The water was abit murky on beach side so did the area near jetty ad we saw turtles and lots of marine fish. Excellent for kids of all ages to get a feel fir snorkelling. Half day was enough but a full day would be better. A must to do if you dont want to travel far.

    Comfortable big boat (3 levels) for the day trip with helpful and personable staff. Excellent snorkel equipment for all ages (including our 3year old) that contributed to the success of this day. We also purchased the buffet lunch which was great for a meal out on the reef.

    Had an amazing time on this day trip. While there isn’t a whole lot to do on Green Island itself, Big Cat provides some great activities that can fill up the day trip and leave you with enough time to have a little swim on your own off the island. Our activities (Glass bottom boat and Snorkel Safari) we’re really well spaced out and left us enough time to relax and have lunch between. Staff on the boat were so nice and friendly. Highly recommend adding extras to the day trip.

    Best day trip on the reef. Make sure you snorkel out to the wharf. Fish life is amazing. If your lucky you might see turtles and black tip reef sharks.staff and food were great.

    Great day out, loved the Yellow Submarine had the best up close encounters with the coral and the fish. Such a shame the resort looks a bit run down. Overall would recommend the day trip
