Hi Susan, We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your day out on Fitzroy Island. It truly is a treasure of Far North Queensland, nothing quite like relaxing on the golden sand of Nudey Beach surrounded by reef and rainforest!. Safe travels and best wishes, Matt

Worst boat trip of my life

I am a local and have been to Fitzroy Island many times. This was the worst trip I have ever had. The boat was barely sea worthy and was filthy. Water dripped onto the table from above and crew were forced to place old towels there so passengers could sit there. When a wale was spotted on the way back the captan did not investigate and just continued. I would not recommend this trip.
