Visit beautiful Green Island, just a 45 min ride by fast catamaran from Cairns. Green Island Cruises depart from The Reef Fleet Terminal at the end of Spence street daily.

The Island has many amenities to buy lunch, go for leisurely walks around the island and generally sit back and enjoy a beautiful tropical island on The Great Barrier Reef.

“Green Island is beautiful tropical Island perfect for relaxing the day away”

You have the choice of 3 different ferry times, to travel to and from Green Island. The great thing about visiting Green Island is its easy access with a short travel time to and from the Island. Green Island is a great place to visit if you just want to get a taster of the Great Barrier Reef but still enjoy being on hard ground and nice shallow water.

Green Island is located just 26 klm from Cairns, it takes about 45 minutes for the ferry transfer over to the island.

Spend a half or full day visiting this beautiful little island which is on The Great Barrier Reef. Snorkel from the beaches or just swim and relax on this beautiful sandy island. You can walk around Green Island in about 45min, a great way to see the untouched parts of the Island. You can even bring your own lunch if your prefer.

“I love visiting Green Island it is a nice easy day to visit the Island. You dont have to travel for to long to get there. Another little tip you can also change the ferry times of your ticket once you are on the Island. You must check with the ticket office on the Island and if they have space you can change your ferry time! great flexiability”

There is a cafe, restaurant, bar, swimming pool and a small nature park based on the island. So you can just book your ferry transfers and enjoy your day on the island.

Green Island is great for families and children, you can easily swim from all the beaches, and the further out you swim, the better the coral gets. Choose a blue sky sunny day to see the very best colors of the natural reef systems that surround Green Island.

I always enjoy going over to Green Island because it is a nice easy day to visit the Island. The travel time is short and you have long stretches of white sandy beaches to setup a little beach camp and relax for the day. Another thing to note there are always lots of turtles hanging around Green Island. Im not sure why that is but it has always been a hot spot for viewing wild hawksbill sea turtles both large and small.
