What you can expect

Departing Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal, enjoy a magical day on Fitzroy Island with return ferry transfers whisking you away to a tropical island paradise. After a short 55 minute ride in a comfortable air-conditioned catamaran, anchor at Fitzroy Island to spend up to 6 hours as you please.

Boasting a dynamic landscape of lush rainforest, granite outcrops, open woodlands, coral beaches and shallow coral reefs to snorkel – you can choose your own Fitzroy Island adventure. Head to the beach activity centre to hire snorkelling gear, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and more to discover the aquatic paradise and abundant marine life found nestled amongst the coral.

On land, you’ll have plenty of time to embark on a self-guided rainforest walk, soak up the sunrays on peaceful, uncrowded coral beaches or head to the restaurant and bar for a delightful meal and cocktail overlooking the glistening, crystal clear waters. Regardless of how you choose to spend the day, you’ll be pleased that you visited one of Queensland’s best islands within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Rainy day at Fitzroy Island. Depends on weather …

Too bad during day with heavy rain. Nothing to do but stuck at the beach. The food is quite good. Especially the salad. But unfortunately we are not booking directly such that we can’t change to an early off. So suggest to book direct from the tour instead of agency.

Great day out on Fitzroy island. The ferry trip there was a little choppy but much better on the way back.

Fitzroy Island was amazing! though we expected to see more whilst snorkelling. Have to now choose another tour that will take us to the outer reef to see more marine life. Honestly, as a tour to visit a beautiful island with nice views and lovely walking trails it was worth it, but to say to someone I have explored the Great Barrier Reef whilst on the island would not be true. Overall a great day out.

Started on a windy and cloudy day and finished on a beautiful sunny day.

The boat was clean, the team was great and friendly. The sea was a bit rough due to the wind. Fitzroy Island was beautiful, my only sadness was the wind on that day. Otherwise was a perfect day. Foxy's food was amazing, as well as the cocktails. You will love it.
