Nice Boat ride and glass bottom coral spotting. Green island was green and nice walk.

The booking was seamless, the arrival experience, service at the catamaran was good. The tea & coffee mugs were already filled in and kept to add milk so it wasn't too hot but it was manageable. The service overall was good. Tip: sit in the middle of the boat to reduce the bumpy ride which may cause sea sickness. We sat in front and most of us were seasick and feeling uneasy. The glass bottom boat was nice and I wish it was more than 30 mins. 30 mins was too little, I guess since the coral is so beautiful. Guide was good and staff were good too. Highly recommend this. Green Island too is nice. It's a good walk inside the island.

Fantastic trip to Green Island with glass bottom boat

Booking with Experience Oz was very easy. Friendly staff and everything was well organized. We had a great day out on Green Island. The only downside was the weather was not so great on the day we went. Highly recommend this green island day trip by Great Adventures.
