About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Decent place to sample what the Great Barrier Reef has to offer. But mind you, the reef around the island is pretty much dead, and the visibility in the water is not that good, considering the fact that you are snorkeling close to the beach wth lots of snorkelers muddying the waters. The cafe needs to be upgraded to provide better choices to day visitors.

Review:   The staff here are phenomenal, great customer service with lots of nice touches to make your stay special. Breakfast is excellent. Would be nice to have more variety on dinner menus but the food was very good all the same. Lots of wild life to be seen all over the island - turtles and fish and even a few small sharks. Very cool to see. Be prepared: island is flooded with day-trippers from 9:00 - 4:00 daily, though there are many places to get away to.

Review:   Very picturesque island. Sadly for us it was slightly less special due to the staggering amount of tourists. I appreciate that we ourselves are tourists but it was unreal. Our boat trip was frustrating as we managed to get a seat, I stood up to take a picture of my partner and some random person jumped into my seat and sat there for the rest of journey... Maybe it's because I'm British but I'm used to lining up with order, not jumping into somebody's grave and actually being pleasant to people. Other than that, nice trip!

Review:   If you're in Cairns and have a day to kill on a limited budget, definitely go and check out Green Island - it only cost me $99 for the return boat fair that is only about 40 minutes each way. Ferry ticket included the choice of free snorkeling gear once you arrive OR a free ride on a glass bottom boat - I chose to go for the snorkeling gear, had a swim around and saw heaps of fish and other sea life amongst the coral, relaxed on the white sand beach afterwards on a deck chair with a cold beer, walked around most of the island in less than an hour, watched the crocodile show located on the island, and then caught the ferry back to Cairns - perfect day out for less than $200
