We had a great day trip to Green Island yesterday on the Big Cat. The staff were attentive and approachable at all times. We are locals and went to the island for a specific reason. Jen and Caitlin, two of the marine biologists, went out of their way to help us achieve our aim and without them we'd have gone home disappointed. They are lovely young women and real assets to the company. The return voyage was quite rough and any passenger who felt sick was tended to quickly with care.

A fantastic day at Green Island. Beautiful environment and so relaxing. Thank you for the hospitality and commentary, very educational.

The boat trip was great, the semi-submersible & glass bottom boat trips are well worth doing. If you’re already familiar with snorkeling it’s very easy to hire some equipment on the island and spend a couple of hours snorkeling just off the beach or jetty. The highlight was the absolute gorgeous snorkeling location. The marine life was incredibly abundant. The only thing letting this trip down is the island is a little dated. The shops need some TLC and there are very few food options.
