On March 13, our cruise ship leaves at noon. We would like to know what tour we can go on between 8 am and 11 that would give us a chance to see some of the rainforest.

I would suggest you check for tours to the Daintree Rainforest. It isn't far from Cairns, so you should be able to find one that suits the limited time you will have in the area.

Definitely! Maybe bring a fan and some water if you get hot easily. Otherwise this is super easy!
