We had an awesome time on Fitzroy Island. We just rode the ferry over for the day and that was more than enough time for us to explore and enjoy the island. We started with the hike to the Summit, which took us just under 2 hours to complete roundtrip with several stops to catch our breath and take in the views. The 90 degree weather and insane humidity definitely tested us but the hike was worth it for the vistas that you were rewarded with at the top. We spent the rest of our day enjoying the extras that were included with our passes -- glass-bottom boat tour, paddle boards, and snorkel gear -- and just relaxing on the beach. Great little day trip and the ferry crossing is beautiful!
Beautiful island, lots of things to do, equipment in good shape, helpful staff, good lunch snacks
My partner and I had a great day on Fitzroy ! It is a nice little island with one resort, crystal clear water and reef beaches. Ferry trip is not too long and very nice when sunny, we have been lucky enough to see a whale ! I strongly recommend booking the activity pass as we noticed that people who paid for the ferry trip only ended up hiring equipment on the island where it seems more expensive. We have been able to use all the snorkeling equipment we needed and took the paddleboards out to go around the island you can use kayaks if preferred. We had a glass bottom boat tour which enabled us to see a turtle, the reef and a lot of fishes. A lunch box was included in the pass, it was really good and fresh! Anyways if you don't want to pay for the pass I am 100 sure you can have a lovely day and you can still relax, do the lighthouse walk or go to different beaches, walks are from 45 minutes to 3 hours return. We also thought the team on the boat was really nice and fun so thanks guys for a good day !
This was a very nice tour! The glass-bottom boat was wonderful! The island is beautiful! The staff members were friendly. I recommend this tour!
Fantastic glass bottom boat tour - we saw tortoises. A wrap, foccacia sandwich, apple, snack bar, water and juice for lunch. Great rainforest walks and several beaches available. Knowledgeable, friendly staff who love their jobs. 200 people on board but spread out over the island, so you were not over crowded. Skip Green Island Fitzroy is better.
Fitzroy Island is amazing! It was really nice to spend a day walking around, enjoying the water, enjoying the beautiful scenery and taking a glass bottom boat tour so I could take some pictures of the reef, too.
Nudy beach is beautiful, but difficult to walk on if you have no shoes, because of the coral. The secret garden hike is nice and quiet, and gets you away from the crowd so you can relax at the end point with just the sound of the birds, the waterfall and the wind through the trees.
Near the beach though, you can relax with a cocktail or go for a swim.
Wonderful!!! Great staff on the boat, wonderful island and great snorkelling!
Beautiful little island with some good patches for snorkeling. Make sure to bring water shoes, coral beaches only. Great for hiking. Not crowded, you can find plenty quiet spots to relax. Wish I stayed overnight.
Was great! Really need to spend more then a day there if want to do everything available, walks, snorkeling, paddle board, kayaking. Crew was nice a friendly. Still a good day even in the rain.
Raging Thunder provided a fantastic day for us! The crew was fantastic super energetic and down-to-earth guys that were very friendly. The boat itself was roomy and comfortable for the trip to/from the island. On the island, I'd recommend wearing water shoes as the beach is all old coral and isn't comfortable to walk on. It was a nice relaxing island that wasn't busy at all, which was great! Underwater coral wasn't as bright and colorful as expected but we saw a good variety of fish, starfish, squid, rays, etc. while snorkeling and got views of brighter coral and turtles on the glass-bottom boat tour. The picnic lunch was more than expected but is just a couple of sandwiches, apple, and a granola bar so bring your own food if you aren't interested in that. The bar on the island has delicious drinks and mocktails, however, to suit your fancy when you need a break from the sun! Great value trip and we had a wonderful day with this tour!
Whilst the trip is a bit slow to get started we had to sit in the sun for a while before the boat got going and had once you got to the island you had to wait again for equipment to be all set out, patience is a virtue. Fitzroy Island was absolutely stunning. The water was clear, the reef was great for beginner snorkelling and we saw many varieties of fish and turtles! We chose the upgraded tour which provided us with all gear which was lots of fun and lunch which was yummy and healthy! We also got the glass bottom boat tour which is educational, you get to have a quick little tour around one side of the island and you get to feed fish! Definitely worth the money we paid for this tour! Staff are fun and easy going, very professional!
very cool tour the guys are just amazing,helpful friendly just great the complete trip
Beautiful Island! Do the upgrade with lunch and activities...well worth it!
Beautiful boat tour, loved the glass bottom boat, and enjoyed the snorkeling and beach time.
This was a great excursion. Staff was very nice and we had a great day snorkeling!
Wonderful day!! Paid a bit extra to do the glass bottom boat ride and to have the paddling equipment etc all provided. I would do this again! Excellent guides/staff, really well organised but still very flexible to let us enjoy the island at our own pace. Had an awesome time, definitely recommend.
