I'm really thankful I did this excursion. You're free to do whatever you want on the island whether that's snorkel, swim, or tan. They have a turtle sanctuary there but I did not... read more

We had the unfortunate luck to get a rainy day for our island adventure. We still visited the turtles, took the glass bottom boat, and paddle boarded. I was very sad that i couldn't see the coral reef - since that was the main draw - by snorkeling or with the glass bottom boat. It was definitely a let down... More

I'm really thankful I did this excursion. You're free to do whatever you want on the island whether that's snorkel, swim, or tan. They have a turtle sanctuary there but I did not go inside so can't comment on that. Saw lots of sea turtles while snorkeling here and the beach is beautiful. Highly recommend

This is a must see! Gorgeous beach (nudeys beach) good for snorkelling, photos or just relaxing! Off the island I swam with a green sea turtle in his natural habitat. Best day ever... the coral here is much more colourful and exciting then other places and the lunch provided is great. They cater for Gluten free at request and it's... More

Great value, great service, great crew. You have to do this tour. The island was not overbooked and there was lots to do. The service was relaxed, fun and welcoming. So much fun on the water with snorkelling, paddle boarding and the trampoline. Lunch was also well chilled and filling, yum. Very much value for money. Thanks guys

Loved the speed boat over the the island! Staff are friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the day spent sun baking on Nudey beach and doing stand up paddle boarding before enjoying a drink at the bar/restaurant. We had the cold lunch option included which was good value at $10pp but not amazing. Just a sandwich, apple, juice and water.

Had a wonderful day in Fitzroy island. Did the morning glass bottom boat tour with snorkelling. Staff were friendly, fun and helpful. Fish-life was fantastic, lots of colourful and exotic looking things, could have stayed in the water for hours!

Great day out with a brilliant crew but beware, you cannot use the resort for anything & the beach is not sandy, full of coral bits but the water is crystal clear. Foxy's bar is great and reasonably priced

To get to Fitzroy there is a ferry or a quicker transportation called the Thunderbolt (this has restrictions i.e age, weather etc) We included the activity pass with our transfers to the Island or you can pay when you arrive. This includes 1 hr on either the Paddle board or Kayaking or 1/2 hour on either one which adds up... More
