I had high hopes for Green Island but it turned out to be very touristic and overall a bit disappointing. Snorkeling around the island is pretty good at some spots, but they're not always easy to find. Sea grass seems more common than coral. Prices...More

This was a great start to our GBR trip practicing snorkeling from the beach was a good intro before we got to the main reef.

Great experience, though the choice of food available is not great if you are on a budget. Glass bottom boat is worth the time and snorkelling is good as well. Weather is good, not too hot. Very windy when time to leave tho

The staff was friendly and helpful and the island is set up to meet everyone's needs - beautiful beach and snorkeling, rides, a pool andshopping. Only regret is that we did half day instead of full day tour

First off, the weather had been bad for a couple of days before we arrived so the water was in no way clear or beautiful. Several of the swimming and snorkeling spots were closed because of the weather. That is no fault of the island...More
