We are Cairns locals who had a friend from overseas visiting. Trip out to Fitzroy was brilliant, quick and smooth ride. It was once we got to Fitzroy we decided we wanted to rent a Kayak. The lady behind the counter said ok, but you can't go any further round the island than just this front part of the beach... More

Fitzroy Island is big and there is lots to do (walks, water activities etc) so I recommend staying overnight if you want to do everything. We went for the day trip which cost $61 each (local rate) with the boat leaving at 9am and leaving at 4.30pm. Given this and the fact that it takes 45 minutes to get to... More

Fitzroy island was great to experience and the snorkeling, nudey beach was great. Raging Thunder is perfect, went over with a slow boat and back with the fast boat.

Wow what a beautiful island. Was advised by locals to go to this one instead of green island as they said it was the better island and less people and they were right. With all the boats that came we hardly saw many people. The island is truly beautiful with heaps of options. There are so many walking tracks but... More

I enjoyed the day out Kayaking and Snorkelling. The Guides were friendly and informative. Other people complained about the lunch but I found it fresh and after Kayaking very filling and yummy. So no complaints of the Lunch. The toilets are not great but I have been in worse in countryside and seaside towns. I however would recommend wearing your... More

I booked ferry, snorkelling equipment, sea kayaking equipments, lunch, and glassbottom boat. Staff messed up the date of my lunch. I ordered my lunch for second day, but they gave me on the first day. I wanted to have it on second day but staff had no idea what to do. So I had to have it on the first... More

We had a wonderful day sea kayaking at Fitzroy Island. Our guide, Dom, was interesting, experienced, kind, and friendly. While kayaking to Little Fitzroy Island from Fitzroy Island, we learned about the reef, the island, the flora and fauna and the weather cycles that affect the island and reef. We hiked up to the top of Little Fitzroy Island and... More

Amazing trip over and back from the island. Sat up front on top of boat! Incredible but don't forget the sunscreen! Commentary leaving Cairns had me laughing out loud! Australians can be funny who knew! Fitzroy Island is great, love it more than Green Island. Less obviously touristy and snorkelling incredible. Kids loved the ocean trampoline. The resturant on the... More

My hubby and I were surprised at the great coral gardens and fish to be seen when snorkelling. I do think more info needs to be supplied re: suitability for prams and older people...just not suitable - not even anywhere to sit and watch. Also not warned about just how difficult it is to walk on steep coral beaches and... More

Fitzroy Island was a lovely surprise; we had not known what to expect. The guides who took us out sea kayaking were very enjoyable. They provided plenty of information about the area as we kayaked and then took us on an interesting tour of Little Fitzroy Island. While snorkelling we got up close to numerous sea turtles and saw a... More
