Had a great day with the family. I was very lucky on my second snorkel after lunch to see 2 turtles, and capture video of it on my cam mask. We did our own thing didn't do any of the attractions for tourists and had a good relaxing day. The sun loungers at the beach cost $30.00 for the day... More

Great staff, just the right amount of time to explore green island before snorkelling on the outer reef. Great semi sub tours, fantastic deck and plenty of assistance with answering lots of questions!

We travelled with Great Adventures on 2 occasions - once to Moore Reef and the second to Green Island. The boat was lovely and spacious, loads of room for everyone. The crew were friendly and helpful - offering advice and suggestions to ensure snorkelling safety. Moore Reef was absolutely amazing - great location, helpful instructors, and helpful staff. The meal... More

We swim with Wally the giant blue fish. Bit disappointed we didn't see Turtle or Nemo but we had wonderful time snorkeling in the beautiful... More

Went on full day tour of green island and great barrier reef. Its quite pricey. The boat was big, clean, and the crew was very helpful and friendly. We chose to have seawalker, the only interesting part of the journey. Everything was set up, all activities as an inclusion were available, but It depends on how would you make the... More

Who made me feel like I was unique as I suffer epilepsy and have to let people know just in case I go swimming etc. She... More

The GBR is a once in a lifetime for both my husband and I. We joined Great Adventures, because they had their own little atoll, and the scuba-doo underwater submarines. The ride out was very choppy, and we bounced around a lot. We stopped at Green Island quickly, and then continued to our destination. The entire trip was about 45... More

We took a cruise to Green Island through Great Adventures. The sea was quite rough that day and the boat bounced around, a LOT! Up and Down, Up and Down (repeat). As we set off I thought to myself "lucky I've never been sea sick in my life before". That was about to change. I cannot speak highly enough of... More

We went out on a huge catamaran that held approx 80 people. The weather wasn't cooperating and a little choppy on top of water. The ride out to The Great Barrier Reef was lovely! Once there we suited up. You have an option of snorkeling or dive with tanks. We stayed on top. It was rough water for snorkeling but... More
