Awesome day on a tropical island! This was an amazing trip - all the staff were very nice and helpful :) The water was crystal clear and we saw sooo many turtles! Just paradise! Lunch was excellent - be sure to pre-pay it - it's cheaper Done certified diving as well - was one of my favourites at the Great Barrier Reef :) We were very sad to leave! If you love islands, warm & clear waters and TURTLES - then definitely do it !

My family went on the Big Cat yesterday to Green Island. We can not speak highly enough of the crew! My children loved it, the highlight for my daughter was being able to throw the food over to feed the fish. Our youngest is 2 and the staff - especially Angela - went out of their way to ensure he was comfortable- especially when he was asleep. We will be recommending them to our friends. Thanks for a great day.
