What To Expect

Only have a few hours to explore the Great Barrier Reef? Achieve this mission on a 4-hour tour to the tropical island of Green Island.

Green Island of the Great Barrier Reef is a 6000-year-old coral cay, located just 45 minutes by catamaran from Cairns. A trip to this pretty island will give you a chance to experience the world's largest coral reef just a few meters offshore. It is a great place for families and kids to snorkel.

For non-swimmers, staying off the water still brings you a lot of fun. Green Island has a unique rainforest within itself, which is home to more than 120 native plant species and colorful birdlife. Surrounded by white sandy beaches, even lazing around and soaking up the sun is satisfying.

This half-day tour will help you make the most out of your time on this beautiful island through various activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, and glass bottom boat tour while gaining in-depth knowledge with marine biologists

Really good experience. The snorkeling was suitable for all...
Really good experience. The snorkeling was suitable for all swimmers of all levels. Even my children were so into it. We got to see and learned lots of things about the marine world from the informative and helpful instructors. Definitely recommend this tour for anyone traveling to the Queensland.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
