Popular Great Barrier Reef attraction Seawalker Green Island has welcomed its 150,000th guest.

29sw03_0124 webHome of Gavin the photo-bombing Parrotfish, Seawalker Green Island celebrated this milestone over the weekend just days before celebrating 10 years of operation with a party aboard its refurbished vessel at the Marlin Marina in Cairns.  

Seawalker Green Island offers the chance to see the reef up close and personal, and guests don’t even need to be able to swim. This makes the Seawalker Green Island adventure prefect for non-swimmers and those who might not be completely confident in the water.

Unlike other similar activities where guests walk on an artificial platform suspended above the reef, downloadat Seawalker Green Island guests walk on the sea floor right amongst the fish and reef.

Seawalker Green Island General Manager, Karl Kuhle said, “To celebrate such a milestone in our 10th year of operation is fantastic. Giving people an up close and personal experience with the reef and its amazing creatures is the driving force to keep improving this award winning adventure.”

Over recent months Seawalker Green Island has also become known for the antics of one Blue-barred parrotfish, Gavin. Gavin has become famous all over the world for photo-bombing nearly every souvenir photo taken over the last 18 months.

Travellers are now visiting Green Island for the day or on a stop-over on the way to the outer Great Barrier Reef for a chance to walk on the seafloor and have their photo taken with the famous Gavin.
