Details

Cruise the Great Barrier Reef aboard the Big Cat and spend time exploring Green Island—a coral cay located just off the shore of Cairns. Once on the island, participate in a number of activities including a semi-submarine and glass-bottom boat ride, snorkeling, swimming, and feasting on a tasty Australian buffet lunch. Just before departing the island, the crew will toss fish food overboard and you'll see hungry giant trevally, rainbow-colored parrot fish, bat fish, and yellow-tailed fusilier gather below. Lather on that sunscreen—you're in for a full day in the sun!
