I spent my last day in cairns doing the kayaking and snorkelling trip. It was fantastic and well organised. The kayak was relaxing and just enjoyed the sunshine as I paddled. Great place for families!!!

Raging Thunder were amazing, staff knowledgeable and organised. Boat's battery died at the end of the day and they were amazing at getting us back to Cairns.

Good value trip. The ferry takes 50 minutes each way . It gets younger at 9.50am and leaves at 16.15. There's plenty of time to do snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding and sea kayaks. Nudy beach is the better beach on Fitzroy by far. It...More

Had a great kayak trip, starting from Fitzroy Island Resort. Raging Thunder (out of Cairns) has their own 'shack' on the island. As we were staying on the island, they had us meet the boat as it arrived from Cairns. We were quickly fitted with...More
