My 9 year old and I had the day with the people from Raging Thunder at Fitzroy Island. It was a highlight of the holiday. The boat ride was great with the staff coming around to ensure everyone was confident and happy with the plans for the day. The island was lovely and my daughter enjoyed swimming out to the... More

The day was very windy and the water had decent chop. Our guide was professional and ensured that all kayakers had a great time. We did the sea kayak tour and took the early speedboat back. The trip out, food, kayaking and speedboat were awesome and highly recommend.

We rang the afternoon before to book our tickets and the lady we spoke to was very informative. Arrived at the Raging Thunder booking desk at 8.20am and got our tickets. The lady at the counter was welcoming and the crew were friendly and helpful. The boat left at 9am sharp. We sat on the open deck this beautiful morning.... More

The Pros: - Excellent (and witty) staff - Beautiful location - Excellent range of activities- paddle boarding, glass bottom boat tours, snorkling, kayaks -Nudey beach is a must The Cons: - Not the best snorkling Ive done here at the reef. There was significantly less coral and fish and when combined with poor visibility we didnt snorkel for very long... More

Absolutely loved the trip with Raging Thunder to Fitzroy Island! Went with my boyfriend as we were staying in Palm Cove. Picked up some leaflets as we wanted to go on a reef tour / island trip and decided on visiting an island as we had already both been on a reef tour where the boat stays out at the... More

My wife and I walked to the far side of the beach where there was loads of shelter and halfway up there was tables, chairs bbq area,... More

A good one day tour. However tour options are limited. Staff need to better coordinate with customers to ensure that there are no communication gaps. Would be great if there are more meal options.

We had taken a one day tour here. It was a great experience. The meal options available are a bit limited though. Also communication by staff can be improved. Owing to some miscommunication, we unfortunately missed the glass bottom boat ride.

I went on this tour with a fellow backpacker. The trip out takes in beautiful views of the rugged and tropical Cairns coastline. After an hour or so you arrive at the island. The walk to the summit the a great, there's an abundance of wildlife and the view from the top is amazing. The snorkelling was okay, unfortunately tides... More
