Great value day trip

The boat over to Fitzroy Island was quick and smooth. The Island itself was a great surprise. It is beautiful. Snorkelling on both sides of the Island is great but you must push boundaries. The further to the east you swim on Nudies Beach the better the reef gets . Go right around past both beaches. On the main beach the snorkelling is great on the northern end but you must go deep! The coral isn't as good here but the fish are huge! We also had the furtune of having a huge turtle swim with us! A great day!

Great day at Fitzroy

it was a quick ride over to Fitzroy island and we were instantly amazed by the beauty of the island. Everything is so lush and green and the water is so blue. We went snorkeling around nudey beach and there was a ton of colorful coral and fish. Besides snorkeling we had drinks and lunch at foxys, did SUP, and did the tour of the turtle rescue. All were great.

Amazing

We did a day trip to Fitzroy Island and couldn't be happier. The ferry ride there was lovely and smooth. Fitzroy island is paradise- the clear water, the view from the (hike to) the summit, the snorkelling, and of course all of those mangos! Prices for snorkel gear and stinger suits were reasonable, and totally worth it. Pack a lunch, bring proper footwear for a challenging hike to the top, and drink plenty of water! You'll surely love it!
