Experience a sail , Green Island and the Great Barrier Reef all in the one day . “Ocean Free” is the only personal Green Island + GBR tour with a maximum of 25 guests . This 16M sailing schooner moors on a private reef just 1 Km off Green Island so guests can snorkel just off the boat onto “Pinnacle Reef” where the “bommies” (coral outcrops ) come to just 1M under the surface for great viewing of this stunning coral garden.

The helpful crew will also teach you how to snorkel and even take you in the water on a personal snorkel tour if extra in-water assistance is needed. Snorkel and dive (optional extra) at any time during the day just off the boat . Only our guests snorkel and dive this site for extra privacy !
