Green Island Full Day Tour
This world famous coral island is formed over millions of years and is home to some immaculate reefs so expect insane snorkeling, crystal clear water, and regular appearances from the local turtles.
This day trip boasts 5 hours of island time, so it’s perfect to find a spot in the shade, throw out the towel and relax. Alternatively the whole island is easily accessible on foot, so why not fill up your water bottle and take a walk on the quiet side. If you’re feeling adventurous, but don’t fancy wading in the water, then we’d highly recommend adding on a semi-submersible experience. This way you’ll get to come face to face with the marine life down below, all without getting wet!
Lunch is not included in this Green Island day tour however you can add a delicious buffet lunch for $30AUD per person at the island (or alternatively, you may want to prepare a packed lunch). It’s safe to say that by the end of the day, you’ll be hoping the ferry doesn’t come back to get you, just so you get to spend more time on this incredible island.
