Fitzroy Island party boat, and other questions

We are struggling with the Fitzroy or Green Island question. There was a previous topic which was closed in August. I see that Fitzroy resort now has a party boat that doesn’t leave until late PM. The advantage of Green seemed to be the day trippers were gone late afternoon. We aren’t night lifers- so wonder how this has changed the feel of the island and where to book a room to avoid the bar scene. Also- for those who know Fitzroy, do they have snorkel trips to the outer reef and provide stinger suits? Can’t seem to find that on their website. We are traveling in November- thanks in advance.

I don't think you can take a day trip out and then come home on the party boat - they are two seperate activities

Green Island would be a better bet having been and stayed on both. Green island has classier accommodation and better service if you were to stay the night. Fitzroy island has camping space and many rooms which ARE noisey whichever you choose. Fitroy is a lot larger so does not have the same feel. The only downside with Green is that do not have any self catering options. Green island resort also offer free equipment though Fitzroy will charge. Snorkling etc is about the same experience on both islands.The rooms are better at Green (no Self Catering) but if only staying a night or two would be worth the extra money.

Hope this helps

here's a page that lists OBR options from Fitzroy Island - I assume they stop there on the way.
