Great day out

This was the second time we did this tour. It's a great day out from Cairns. We love the fact that the reef is so accessible and allows family members to either go snorkeling, sunbathe, or have a drink without all having to do the same thing at the time. Fitzroy Island is beautiful. It doesn't take long to get there which is a plus if you're prone to motion sickness. It's good value for money too. Highly recommended.

Fantastic island with lots to see and do

Loved Fitzroy Island. Was probably the highlight of our trip. Lots of great snorkelling locations. Water was crystal clear, the island also has heaps of amenities.

First time snorkeling

The boat ride was fast and the staff was friendly. It was my first time snorkeling and the experience was absolutely amazing. I saw so many fish and corals - even a stingray! I liked how this trip only included the boat shuffles and then you could explore the island independently. I started by hiking up to the lighthouse which took a couple of hours. After that, it was nice to jump into the clear waters. I snorkeled nearby to rental shop and even there you could see some fish. I then walked to Nudie Beach and was absolutely blown away by the underwater life! I recommend walking the extra 15 min to Nudie Beach as the sea life is more prominent and colourful there. Thank you for a great day!
