Very friendly helpful staff on the boat and snorkelling was amazing. Speaker system upstairs needs to be updated. Couldn't understand a word but our demonstrator was pretty awesome 👍

Had an awesome day. The boat trip was beautiful the weather perfect and Fitzroy Island was fantastic. We snorkeled and relaxed under a shady tree looking and the beautiful water. The hot pasta and meatball lunch was ok although a little dry needed more sauce. It came with an apple and a nut and chocolate bar and water in a cute souvenir bottle. It was fun, I had an excellent day

Overall it was ok, unfortunately the weather was a let down, not really your fault. Many people sick travelling out to the island. Crew did a great job. Water was rough there, not till late afternoon was it comfortable. Food was ok sandwich bread was soggy. Loved walking around though, enjoyed the walk to Nudey beach. Because of the day intakes the experience down. Perhaps sound have chosen glass bottom boat, heard good reports.

Our day had it all! We swam with a turtle at the island and took a guided tour of the reef with a marine biologist. The picnic lunch was fresh and tasty and the crew friendly and helpful. On the way back to Cairns the captain slowed down for us to see dolphins and whales! We couldn't ask for more.

Enjoy a full-day tour to the glorious marine wonderlands of Fitzroy Island from Cairns, with an ever-adventurous itinerary: hike through the wilderness and snorkel through the crystal-clear waters of this island. The lush 339 hectares of rainforest cover about 94% of the island and is protected as a National Park. The walking trails are suitable for all levels of fitness, so all you have to do is make sure to wear your trekking shoes. Explore areas of the island at your leisure and bask in the natural beauty of your surroundings. The beach hire hut gives you a range of snorkeling gear!

You have the choice to upgrade your ticket and add a scrumptious lunch, a Glass Boat tour, snorkeling equipment or a Snorkel Safari tour to your cruise! The Glass Boat tour will allow you to see the spectacular marine creatures of Cairns without having to dip into its waters. Its transparent bottom will let you glimpse at the aquatic world underground as you sail on the water. You can also upgrade to add snorkeling equipment to your cruise ticket. Please note that the snorkeling gear hire will not include a safari.

During the Snorkel Safari tour, a boat will drop you off at one of the abundant coral reefs Fitzroy Island has to offer. The Safari will give you exclusive access to areas not accessible to other guests. With marine biologists keeping you company during this snorkeling adventure, you'll learn about the exotic marine life up close.
