What To Expect
Once you step ashore, choose from a wide variety of activities to design your perfect day (additional expenses may apply). Snorkel straight from the beach to swim among tropical fish and coral gardens, embark on a scuba diving tour or try the unique Seawalking experience, where a helmet allows you to breathe underwater while surrounded by swimming marine life. If you prefer not to get wet, you can still get a great view of the giant clams, sea turtles, and tropical fish below the surface with a tour on a glass-bottom boat or upgrade to ride on a semi-submarine.
If you choose the lunch option at booking, enjoy a delicious buffet meal aboard the catamaran midday. (See Itinerary below for a sample lunch menu.) Grab a drink at any time from the fully licensed onboard bar (own expense).
At Green Island Resort, feel free to use the facilities including showers, restrooms and changing rooms to stay comfortable throughout the day. You can also hire beach chairs, umbrellas, canoes, sailboards and surf skis from the resort and take advantage of several walking tracks to explore the island’s tropical rain forest landscape.
After your time soaking up the island paradise, relax on the return catamaran cruise to Cairns.
