Return to cairns on the helicopter
Mar 2021
What an amazing day! We cruised to Green island for a couple of hours before heading to the outer reef pontoon for lunch and snorkeling before a 25 minute helicopter ride over the reef and returning to Cairns.

The staff were very friendly and created a relaxed environment, they made sure we knew what the plan was for us and clearly explained what we could expect, first class!!

Don't catch the boat back to cairns, splurge and get the helicopter despite the fact that it is an amazing experience it takes 25 minutes instead of 1 hour and 45 minutes...
