It was everything I hoped. Beautiful weather for snorkeling. Turtles, fish, string ray and sharks and amazing barrier reef all in one spot. Excellent experience.

The ferry company were excellent. Green Island is disappointing in many ways. It has been spoilt by commercialisation and the facilities are average. There are a couple of nice beach areas. Glass bottom boat ride was good. The fish follow the boat as they feed them so you get to see a lot. Most of the coral viewed was dead. It was ok but I would not go back.

Choppy water and still had an amazing time. What an awesome tour, staff were friendly and great. FYI food on this island is very pricey (expected on a remote island) so worth bringing some snacks. Amazing reef to view!
