This Island trip through Raging Thunder is a MUST for anyone wanting to visit The Coral Reef in a relaxed, paradise-like setting, with amenities to suit every need. Unlike other Islands, that my family and I also visited, Fitzroy Island felt completely untouched, un-commercialised. It gad a natural feel to it, like we were the first to inhabit the island....

We had a fantastic time snorkeling with Dom and Sam, and exploring Fitzroy Island. Fitzroy Island was one of the most beautiful places we have visited. Pristine, and beautiful colors.

good value for money especially after getting the trip for half price on bookme. Only got the basic package, basically the ride to and from the island. There is always the option to purchase other items from the beach hut. We did the walks in the national park and swam at the beach. The booking process and check in was... More

I booked the all-day boat ride to and from Fitzroy Island theough viator.com. Check-in was easy and straight forward. It was an approximate hour boat ride to the Island, which was a beautiful, calm ride but otherwise uneventful. The boat has the option of sitting on the upper, open-aired level, or the bottom which is mostly enclosed and probably a... More

Highlight of trip to Cairns Here was a brisk north wind so we paddled around the point to calm seas. Loved riding the swells! We snorkeled at Hidden Beach with lots of different coral and plenty of fish! Going back around the point of got rough so we put in at the beach at the point and had a short... More

I booked this trip through an agency and went there today. In general the trip is great, nice place, decent snorkel spot, most staff are very friendly, but there is one japanese staff that has been quite rude to us. Usually i dont care people being rude because some people are not educated to have a good manner, but this... More

We booked the tour which included the glass bottom boat, use of sea equipment and lunch. The guys and girls gave us a great day. They were very entertaining on and off the boat. Very helpful crew. Lunch was delicious and great value for the price. The island has everything you need but I would remember to take my beach... More

I have to say that this is absolutely one of the best experiences we had here in Australia. If you love nature and the calmness of kayaking this is your kind of trip. We were lucky that the group only consisted of us plus 1 more and that made the trip even better. Beautiful nature with wonderful animal life. We... More

We went for the all inclusive day trip which was only around $200 for the two of us. Nice boat ride there and back. Went for the walk to the secret garden which was nice, glass bottom boat tour was good and our guide was great and entertaing while providing some great information. Lunch at the bar was nice -...
