We visited Cairns over a weekend where it was raining a fair bit but were lucky enough to get a gorgeous, sunny day. We were recommended by people to book in advance however I booked one day before and was able to secure 2 spots in November 2013. We went with Big Cat Green Island Reef Tours and chose the standard package including snorkel gear and the return boat transfer. The Island is small and has a walking trail which you can get done in 20 minutes. A few over priced eateries around. We stopped at a small crocodile park which we thought was a bit pricey however it turned out to be really cool inside and the guy taking care of the crocs is extremely passionate and really knows his stuff. The snorkelling was amazing! Lots of colourful fish to see and I was even lucky enough to see a turtle which I followed around for ages. Hot tip= wear sun screen if your snorkelling. That harsh Australian sun will leave a nice raw mark on your entire back!
