Half day with snorkelling fun in the sun and beach

Great friendly team. We thoroughly enjoyed the snorkelling and beach. Didn’t find nemo but there was plenty of beautiful coral and other fish just swimming around us. Overall nice and relaxing morning. Happy with the half day and it suited our needs

An amazing experience for the pre-teen/teen and myself. We had never done anything like this before. Had so much fun just snorkeling between the flags with lifeguards on patrol.

Was so much fun!! The kids and I will always remember our adventure on Green Island. Honestly, nothing to fault. Staff were friendly and explained everything well on the boat. I got my times mixed up and so was running late. They called me to see where I was which was very much appreciated. The only thing that went wrong was because we were having so much fun just snorkelling, the time went incredibly fast and we ran out of time to check out the rest of the island and the big crocodile 😭 I should have booked a full day. Oh well, I'll do that next time. I highly recommend this activity and I would do it again in a heartbeat. 5 stars!!

Lovely day out to Green Island the boat transfer was fun. Went snorkelling then went to the croc farm. The glass boat was amazing with an amazing tour guide.It ends with another boat transfer home.

The half day Cruise to Green Island was amazing. If you are bringing little ones please note that the boat is smaller and the water can get rough. They have an amazing croc farm tour on the island very entertaining tour guide. The snorkelling is amazing if you don't want to snorkel the glass boat is an amazing option as we got to see so many different size fish and even turtles. Overall half day Green Island was enough for a good day out.
