We enjoyed a day on Fitzroy island very much. The trip out on the boat Raging Thunder, was great. The cafe/bar on the island was good, the Island itself beautiful! It has places to snorkel, kayak, bushwalking - several levels depending on fitness. I live to snorkel so no prizes for guessing what I did. My husband doesn't snorkel so... More

Awesome! Do the activity pass one.. you get snorkelling, kayaking, ocean trampoline, lunch and ferry transfers for $105! This trip is my favourite for a cheap day trip from Cairns which has lots included. Fitzroy is an amazing island with plenty to do and is really beautiful island so don't forget your camera and some money for a beach front... More

you will get more than you expect with the kayak paddle on fitzroy. It turns in to an awsome snorkelling session around little fitzroy led by a local guide who dives the area himself. We got a simple but hearty feed. Worth the extra coin.

My best friend and I did the day trip out to Fitzroy Island last week. One word.. WOW. What a beautiful island - amazing turquoise waters - felt like we were in Thailand. Raging Thunder were great (they all had such beautiful eyes haha). Would recommend getting the packed picnic lunch and activity equipment when booking - we were able... More

Had a great day with Raging Thunder at Fitzroy. Beware that it can get a little choppy on your way there (I felt very sick!) lots to do and see. Beaches are nice but made up of coral not soft sand again just be aware. Great scenery and very informative glass bottom boat trip.

We had a great day on Fitzroy Island recently, despite the weather not being great! I can highly recommend the sea kayaking and snorkelling - a great experience.

Went to the Island with wife and 2 girls(12,10). Had a great day. Snorkel gear, SUP included + lunch. Snorkelling is not reef quality but stiff great fun ( plenty of sea turtles) as is stand up paddle boarding. Lunch was better than expected, roll, wrap, fruit, water + OJ. Thunder team were entertaining. Beach covered in coral so hard... More

To put this in perspective, we had taken a trip to Agincourt Reef earlier in the week that we were reasonably pleased with, but had been hampered by the weather slightly. This trip to Fitzroy Island was a last minute choice, and it was the best thing we did on our stay in Port Douglas. First of all, it's much... More
