Green Island with Big Cat Green Island Reef Cruises

July 13, 2017

My photographer and I were invited to snorkel, swim, dive and relax on the beach on a Great Barrier Reef tour to Green Island with Big Cat Green Island Reef Cruises. It was a day in tropical paradise. Snorkelling in The Great Barrier Reef was the most incredible experience. I dove in The Great Barrier Reef in 2012 when I was on exchange in Brisbane, but I could visit the reef a million times and still be amazed!

 

Visiting the Green Island wit Big Cat Green Island Reed Cruises was an incredible and new experience because I got to visit the beautiful remote Green Island in addition to snorkelling around the island. On the boat trip out to the Island we spotted some dolphins and two whales. The island was a tropical paradise, and so remote. We swam with turtles, yellow, stripy, blue, and large colourful green fish as well as tiny colourful fish playing peek-a-boo in and out of their reef home. We got lost in the ocean for several hours. After we walked around the beautiful Green Island with some ice cream and cold soft drinks, and swam in the sea. At this time of year there are no dangerous stingers in the water, but you will be given snorkelling equipment and stinger suits (
should it be necessary) onboard. The water was turquoise and warm. We went on a submarine tour under the ocean and spotted even more fish and four turtles - this is a good substitute to diving if you have young children or diving is not your cup of tea. However, I do recommend trying snorkelling for everyone, it is magical and easy once you get the hang of the mask.

 

We both absolutely loved the trip, and would do it again many times! To ensure a great experience, make sure you book your tour on a sunny day. Thank you for having us! Wishing you all the best on your visit to Cairns:)
