Get up-close to the Great Barrier Reef’s vibrant, biodiverse undersea universe during this excursion to idyllic Green Island. Sail aboard a classic schooner and bask in the unspoiled beauty of the Coral Sea before arriving at an exclusive mooring to snorkel the day away.

After arriving at the Reef Fleet Terminal, climb aboard the 54-foot (16.5-m) Ocean Free—a true stunner. With only 35 guests sharing her decks, you’re ensured maximum comfort and personalized attention. Sit back and enjoy a steaming cup of coffee as you set sail for the open seas.

Drop anchor at Pinnacle Reef and prepare to greet tropical fish, sea turtles, and starfish alike. Admire the palm-strewn beaches of Green Island—a mere 765 yards (700 m) away—as they beckon to your ship, then strap on your snorkeling mask and fins.

Take the plunge—feet first—and open your eyes to a variety of vivid sea life. From yellow-tailed fusiliers, to schools of spangled emperors, there’s plenty of underwater action to spy on. If you feel a bit more adventurous, sign up for a scuba diving session (surcharge applies), and—with a guided expert—descend to even greater depths.

Following a tropical smorgasbord lunch on deck you’re allotted leisure time to truly take in Green Island. Stroll the long white beaches or explore the island's native flora and fauna, with abundant bird species overhead. When it’s time to embark for a return cruise to Cairns, sip on a glass of wine and toast to an incredible day at the Reef.
