Great day out with a brilliant crew but beware, you cannot use the resort for anything & the beach is not sandy, full of coral bits but the water is crystal clear. Foxy's bar is great and reasonably priced

To get to Fitzroy there is a ferry or a quicker transportation called the Thunderbolt (this has restrictions i.e age, weather etc) We included the activity pass with our transfers to the Island or you can pay when you arrive. This includes 1 hr on either the Paddle board or Kayaking or 1/2 hour on either one which adds up... More

We had an awesome day out and what a great way to do this on the quick and easy Thunderbolt! Coral on Fitzroy Island was wonderful with great staff to help,us with all the equipment we needed. It was the first time my daughters had snorkelled (ages 8&12) and they loved it as well as the trampoline. Only disappointment was... More

I purchased the all-inclusive package (glass bottom boat, kayaks, paddleboard, snorkel equipment and lunch). I found myself spending almost the entire time snorkeling, and didn't kayak or paddleboard, so the extra cost wasn't really necessary for me and if I did it again I would just do the basic package. I was able to snorkel with a sea turtle and... More

A lovely day out at a great price. The crew where great and couldn't have been more helpful . We walked to the secret garden a short walk into the forest. An easy walk which felt very peaceful away from everyone. The trip included a packed lunch of two different sandwiches, water, juice , a cereal bar and an apple... More

We had a fantastic day out to Fitzroy Island. We enjoyed the trip out to the Island by boat. The whole day was totally relaxing. We did a walk around to Nudey Beach - a bit of hike (quite rough terrain) it was a lovely beach but unless you are going to snorkel I don't think its worth the walk.... More

Fitzroy Island was one of the highlights of our trip! Clear waters, fish within meters of the beach, ideal for snorkelling, and coral beaches with even a sea trampoline! Raging thunders do a deal where you can buy unlimited access to the trampoline. You can hire paddle boards and snorkels and stinger suits, relatively cheaply from the island. Nudie beach... More

We were staying on Fitzroy Island for 3 days and a friend organised the Sea Kayak Tour for us. Normally my wife would not go as she is not very good and it can be a frustrating experience for both of us. But she is glad she did! An American couple joined our group and after doing the paperwork Dom,... More

Took on the Raging Thunder Sunset cruise for a last afternoon adventure in Cairns and was completely impressed. The two guys taking us were down to earth, friendly and very knowledgeable about the reef, island and plenty of other stuff. Fitzroy Island is just super impressive itself on a sunny Sunday arvo, food platter that was supplied and plenty of... More
