My husband and I had never been to Fitzroy Island before but had been to Lowe Isle twice and thought the general area is beautiful. Each of these Island trips are similar but the beauty of Fitzroy Island is you arrive around 10.15am and the return leg doesn't leave until 4.30pm. It gives you so much time to explore, swim,...

In the morning the Ferry left right on time for Fitzroy Island. The staff were incredibly kind and very helpful. Once on the Island you get plenty of things do to. The water is clear blue and perfect for snorkeling. Also, there are quite a few hikes to the secret garden, the lighthouse and the summit. You do need a... More

As medium experienced kayakers we've now learnt that we need to be careful booking tours or go expecting a toddle.  Unfortunately the rest of the tour group were beginners, never kayaked before and sea conditions were not ideal. There was no chance of getting around the island at all. According to my gps we did about 7km over 3 hours... More

Raging Thunder were a wonderful company to go to Fitzroy Island with. The staff were all lovely and very helpful. The price was very reasonable, and the picnic lunch that we got in our package was great; very filling and tasty. The island was beautiful, plus we saw a whale just before we reached the island. Thank you Raging Thunder... More

The island is stunning. There are walks to the summit that arn't for the faint hearted but they are well worth the struggle. Raging thunder provides a fantastic packed lunch which is healthy and fulfilling. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

I visited Fitzroy Island in early June with Raging Thunder. Firstly, let me say that I signed up for the sea kayaking tour. Unfortunately, on the day itself, the tides were too strong for us to be able to kayak safely so we all ended up snorkelling instead. To the company's credit, we did get a partial refund. And the...

I went out in rough seas, 15-20 knot wins. Many people succumbed to sea sickness. Good hicking trails. Disappointment was the coral beach ... Very uncomfortable and less than satisfactory snorkeling. Glass bottom boat was not operating due to the wind and rough seas.
