Snuba was an experience of a lifetime! I am not a swimmer and our instructor made my experience a positive and fun time. I can’t imagine missing that experience.

Both myself and my wife had a fantastic experience Snuba and visiting Green Island. The Snuba instructor was great and very patient as my wife was unsure about going under the water, however with his guidance she did. Green Island is beautiful. We also had a glass bottom boat

Sorry to read of your personal disappointment Nadia, Big Cat has a great name for itself in the Cairns market and offers economic fares to Green Island and the Great Barrier Reef, we do appreciate there are some other great experiences that travel further to the outer reef at a larger expense. Thanks for your feedback, Regards, Chris
