Wonderful crew with fantastic sense of humour, the fast cat was amazing, and the $5 lunch well wow my husband and I couldn't finish it( HUGE) and also very healthy yummo. The snorkelling was great probably a little better than green island not as many people or boats around. And a bar to boot that we put in use. WINNING... More

Ok it's basically one of loads of reef trips! What makes this one five stars?..... The crew! It's a fast cat ride (50mins) to Fritzroy Island, unload onto the beach via a jetty. It's a very small resort, narrow sloping beach, small Island etc so you need to able bodied, but it's special. The crew can supply canoes, snorkels, and... More

I'm hesitant to rate this day trip so highly in the fear it will become to popular and become overrun with too many tourists. Glad to take a relatively smaller boat with a few hundred people for the day to the magnificent island then get on one of the livestock carrier sized boats going to green island. Anywho, I digress.... More

Really nice and chilled crew on the boat with cool music choices. Fitzroy is an excellent place to spend the day, beautiful beach, fun trampoline, good snorkeling and almost guaranteed turtles.

Our family with a three year old as part of the group recently went to Fitzroy Island for a day trip on the Raging Thunder ferry. Whilst the trip was O K when we got to the island it was a big disappointment . Nothing like the brochure. The front main beach is all dead coral which is very hard... More

We did the day long glass bottom boat and snorkel tour. Left the pier after 9am and got to island around 10am. Saw dolphins and a whale on the way. Comfy ride in the sun. Once landed, we booked the glass bottom boat ride. Until the glass bottom ride, we got to use the included smaller kayaks, standup paddle boards... More

The boat ride is minutes from Cairns so you can be swimming off the coral beach soon. The pristine reef, a short swim off the beach, has some really lovely hard and soft corals and a huge variety of coloured fish. We saw a man call "turtle" but never managed to see one ourselves but others told us they saw... More
