Organisation was good and the ferry ride comfortable. We did the trip that included ferry, lunch, snorkel gear (and stinger suit) and glass bottom boat. Lunch was a packed lunch in a box, ham salad sandwich, chicken wrap, Apple and cereal bar. With a bottle water and orange juice. We enjoyed it. Snorkelling was easy on the beach next to... More

We had a lot of great tours and fabulous guides on our east coast trip, but I have to say that the Fitzroy kayaking tour with our guide Rob was my favorite tour of the whole trip! Rob was knowledgable about the reef as we were snorkeling and was super fun during the entire kayak trip (even when we managed... More

The island have beautiful white sandbeaches. You can enter the water and snokel around. If you are lucky you will meet a few turtles. You can have a walk around the island in about half an hour. In a restaurant and a small burger bar you can satify our hunger. Futhermore there are gift shops and a shop for snorkle... More

I thought with the weather being heavy rain all day my trip had been ruined an hour and a half into being on the island...but after chatting with the crew they were so kind and kept me under shelter, kept me entertained, convinced me to go paddle boarding (which I wanted to do but the weather was so terrible I...

This island is simply paradise!! This is the lesser popular island (Green Island being the more popular) which makes it better in my books as there's less people on the island with you. Book your trip through Raging Thunder, we had the activity pass 2 which basically included everything you could want to do at a very reasonable price. Snorkel... More

I went on this tour with my partner and my sister about a month ago. It was fantastically organised, the equipment was almost brand new and we saw so many turtles! Fitzroy Island is amazing and Raging Thunder are the best way to see it! Thanks guys!

We visited Fitzroy Island through Raging Thunder Tours. The boat trip over and back was fantastic, completely smooth, boat was well maintained and clean, the staff were helpful and entertaining. We purchased activity pass 1 ($103) which included lunch, either snorkel hire or glass bottom boat, two of us (out of 3) chose the glass bottom boat tour which was... More

We visited Fitzroy Island with raging thunder tours. The boat was really packed, full to the max, but we had a great day. The island is spectacular, and it's a coral beach, so I recommend taking some coral beach shoes. You arrive at the island and check in for your trips, we went for the full package with lunch, hire...

Fitzroy island was an unexpected surprise - my bf and I went to a one night liveaboard trip to the outer reef, whilst fitzroy was one of our last stops in cairns. Absolutely amazing! Did not really expect to see much there, but we pretty much saw all the fish out in the outer reef, if not more. If you're... More

White coral beaches and a few great walking areas. Make sure you take a walk up to the old lighthouse as the views are excellent. Quick 45 minute journey from Cairns, the ferry is large enough to not have to worry about getting sea sick. Overall a good experience!
