Full description
Fitzroy Island was once part of mainland Australia, before being separated by rising waters. Over time a fringing coral reef surrounded the island, providing a sheltered home to a variety of fish and coral species. Explore this marine wonderland on a full-day tour from Cairns, crossing by ferry to enjoy the wilderness hiking trails, snorkeling adventures, and more. The tour is available in a range of packages to suit the entire family, including transfers only for you to explore on your own, or a package tour that includes snorkel or glass-bottom boat activities. Explore the Island's 339 hectares of lush rainforest that covers 94 percent of the island and is protected and managed as a National Park. Walking trails are suitable for all levels of fitness, allowing you to explore areas of the island at your leisure. The fast catamaran departs from the Marlin Marina, with check-in at the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal. Cruise south along the calm waters of the coastline to reach Fitzroy Island in just 45 minutes, giving you up to 7 hours to explore the tropical island.

Due to rain &winds prior to out tour the water wasn’t very clear. However this trip and the island were still well worth it. The island is stunning with multiple beaches to explore and good quality paths. So many photo opportunities so make sure ur phone is fully charged. You can snorkel to see the coral n fish, take a walk around the island or just relax on one of the beaches.

Great day out, really enjoyed the snorkelling looking at the Beautiful coral and the colourful fish so close to the shore Only thing was there were no fresh showers for the guests on the boat,due to water restrictions, There needs to be some kind of agreement with the hotel accommodation on Fitzroy Island and the casual visitors where they can have a shower even if they have to pay a fee

Easy booking and transfer to Fitzroy Island! The snorkeling in Welcome bay was better than Nuedie Beach! The proper coral snorkeling is well round the point from Nuedie beach. The water was warm although stinger suits were advisable! Nice cold beer if foxy’s bar before returning to Cairns! Good day outing!
