The Tour

This tour combines the beauty of a scenic flight from Cairns to Green Island, where you have a little more than an hour to explore. This 6000 year-old sand cay is home to a multitude of marine life and coral gardens as well as hosting the luxurious Green Island Resort. Swim from powder white sandy beaches in the turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef or take a stroll along the island's rainforest lined boardwalks. 

Your day continues with a fast catamaran transfer from Green Island onboard Great Adventure’s luxury vessel, Reef Prince. A 45 minute journey through the blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef to will see you arrive at Great Adventure’s luxury 3 level state of the art pontoon, located at Norman Reef. Once aboard the pontoon your Great Barrier Reef Adventure begins! All snorkelling equipment and instruction are provided, as are buoyancy vests to make snorkelling an easy experience if you are not a confident swimmer. For those wishing not to get wet, a semi-submersible submarine tour will show you the coral reef and its many brilliant coloured fishes along with a staggeringly diverse amount of marine life, all in absolute comfort. These tours come with full commentary and are available for snorkellers to enjoy as well!

The pontoon houses an underwater observatory, which provides large viewing windows overlooking the wondrous panorama of the Great Barrier Reef. The pontoon is spacious and comfortable with features including, showers, change-rooms, full sundeck with sun-lounge, children’s swimming enclosure, bar and buffet area with shaded canopy, tables and chairs for dining.

Lunch is a lavish affair, with a selection of hot and cold dishes from the buffet including prawns, fresh salads and tropical fruit platters with freshly baked bread rolls. Tea and coffee are also included at the end of the meal.

After 3 hours free time on the pontoon we cruise back into Cairns onboard Great Adventures luxury, high speed catamaran. The trip back takes approximately 90 minutes, so sit back, relax in air-conditioned comfort and enjoy reflecting on your magical day.
