Our trip to Fitzroy Island with Raging Thunder was awesome. The staff were friendly and welcoming always ready for a joke and really looked after the customers on the boat over as there were a few who got seasick as it was quite rotten weather. The boat trip was fast, the explanation of the island was fast and the gear... More

I would recommend this to anyone. Dom was hilarious and the guys on the Raging Thunder boat. We had a great day and were able to Kayak around the little Fitzroy Island. The snorkeling around the Island was grand and then when we got back we hiked up to the top of the Island and to the light house. Was... More

Myself and some friend's caught the ferry over to Fitzroy for their last day in cairns. Unfortunately I slipped on some rocks and slit the bottom of my foot open on some oysters. The guys from Raging Thunder did an absolutely amazing job of looking after me I can't thank them enough. Went massively out of their way to help... More

Took the boat out to Fitzroy , enjoyable trip with pleasant staff, unfortunately not many seats when u get to island for elderly people to sit on, cannot use hotel facilities, public toilets very smelly... Restaurant food ok, somewhere to sit while eating. Glass bottom boat entertaining, driver great,

The crew were fantastic, humerus and pleasant, made us feel at home. Extremely well priced tour and highly recommend the activity package, no extra cost for equipment hire once on the island, use all day (low numbers on the island). Easy ride over, hiking, good snorkelling and stand up paddle boarding. Just a friendly fun day.

Overcast and a bit too windly to paddle all the way around the island, so we padfled as far as Little Fitzroy where we stopped off for a hike over the top and brief snorkel. Scrambled up the rocks and down through secret... More

What an amazing day spent on Fitzroy Island! The crew first off are so funny, relaxed and really love what they do. I did the sea kayaking with Dom and it was amazing fun. He is a blast to chat with, really knows his stuff about the island and kayaking and has some great stories to tell. When you do... More
