Your Great Barrier Reef shore excursion departs just a five-minute walk along the waterfront from the Cairns cruise liner terminal.

Board your air-conditioned catamaran at the reef fleet terminal, and set off over the crystal-blue water to Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef.

During your hour-long cruise to Green Island, watch a snorkeling demonstration and an informative presentation on how to get the most of your time on this beautiful coral cay, just 15 nautical miles (27 kilometers) from Cairns.

Landing at Green Island in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, see how the island is topped with emerald rainforest and surrounded by white sandy beaches and magnificent coral reefs. The marine life includes endless varieties of colorful fish, turtles, giant clams, shells, starfish and sea anemones.

Spend a relaxing four hours on Green Island, and view the sea creatures on a glass-bottom boat tour or grab some snorkeling gear and dive into the water and see the marine life up close.

A range of optional activities can also be organized on the day, including an introductory scuba diving, Seawalker Helmet Dive and semi-submersible coral viewing tours (additional cost, paid locally).
