Two Hours On Green Island, Great Barrier Reef

Pre-book a morning transfer from your accommodation for a small extra fee. You'll depart at 9.00am from Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal for a leisurely 45-minute cruise to Green Island, where you'll have two hours to unwind, relax and explore. 

Choose from a range of activities including snorkelling the fringing reef and glass bottom boat tours – a great way to view the reef's stunning coral and marine life whilst staying dry. Or sunbathe on the white sandy beaches and take an eco-walk around the island. There are various cafés and restaurants on the island should you need a tropical cocktail, cold beer, snacks or just a water.

Afternoon Rafting Adventure

After a glorious morning on Green Island, you will be picked up from the Cairns Marlin Marina and taken on a short 20-minute drive to Barron Gorge where your two-hour rafting adventure begins. Just bring your swimmers, sunscreen, dry clothes, secure footwear (that can get wet), cash or credit card for the photo purchases and insurance levies ($25pp). Leave all your valuables such as jewellery and watches securely on the bus.

Enjoy the exciting paddle downstream, negotiating rocks and logs on the way. Mostly grade 2-3 rapids are sure to keep you entertained but are not too extreme for the first-timers. Don’t worry, there will be a couple of quieter sections which will give you time to absorb the beautiful rainforest setting.

There are two things that are sure about your rafting adventure – you will get wet and you will have fun!

Your Adventurous Day Concludes

Your action-packed day will finish by 6.00pm. There are changing facilities near the river and once you have put on some dry clothes, had a warm cup of tea and purchased all the best shots of you and your mates on the river, it's time to jump in the bus and enjoy the drive back to your accommodation. You will remember this thrilling day for years to come!
