Reviews by our Cairns Tours customers

Kate Cohen, 05 Aug 22
I was originally just going to go to Green Island, and while I loved seeing Green Island and I'm very happy I got to see it ion this tour, the outer reef was so worth it! SO GOOD!!
Dixie, 31 Jul 22
My partner and I loved this trip! The day was broken up nicely by going to green island first, then Moore reef. It was my first time snorkelling too and the staff were so attentive and kind.
Andrea , 15 Jul 22
Such a fun day out with the family. The pontoon was great for the kiddies, everyone had something to do. Highly recommend!
Melanie Lee, 11 Jul 22
I really wanted to see the reef but wasn't too sure about Green Island since I hadn't heard the reef was the best there. This was the best way to see the reef out at Moore and get to spend time relaxing on the beach! Really fantastic!
