The sea was a bit rough when we went to Green Island, and unfortunately when we arrived there, so much sand was billowing up from the bottom of the sea that we couldn't see anything at all when snorkeling. Even the glass-bottomed boat didn't allow us to see very much although the boat driver was excellent and tried his very best. We were short of time with only 30 minutes to eat something when we returned to shore before the bus took us to the skyrail terminal. The skyrail trip was great, but beware that the most of the shops etc in Kuranda close about 3.30 pm so there isn't a lot to see or do by the time you get there on this trip. If you have more time it would probably be better to take a whole day for Kuranda. Because of so much rain the week before we were there, the return trip from Kuranda by train was cancelled, so we returned by skyrail. The tour company informed us of this problem a few days before we went and offered us the choice of cancelling the tour, rescheduling or returning by skyrail. The pick up and drop off were fine.

Response From Barrier Reef Australia

Thanks for your feedback Zvi. Unfortunately for numerous visitors to the Far North, the weather this April was not so kind. We are pleased to hear the glass bottom boat skipper did their best to help you view the reef. We hope to see you back again to see our beautiful Cairns region when it is blessed with better weather.
