Hello, family of 4 - children ages 10 and 7 going to GBR for first time. We are splitting our stay between Cairns and Port Douglas. I had been planning on doing the outer reef from Port on Quicksilver and it looked like a great, well-run day with plenty of activities for our family.
However, now I've found that we could go with Great Adventures out of Cairns instead and include a stop on Green Island. While I know Green Island isn't as good as the outer reef, I figure it would be a bonus to see someplace extra.
My question is: Is Great Adventures as good, well-run, modern, as full of activities as Quicksilver? We just don't want to be disappointed. Is Quicksilver's snorkelling site better than Great Adventures?
One other question: We are also considering going with Quicksilver to Low Isles as a second day trip. Any opinions from anyone who has done this?
Thank you so much for your advice.
