What you can expect

For the quickest and most effective way to get to the beautiful, unspoiled Fitzroy Island, this option includes ferry transfers from Cairns that is not only an efficient way to get "from A to B" but makes for a spectacular tour in itself! Heading out from the Cairns Marina, you'll board a comfortable vessel and cruise out across the pristine reef waters towards the wonderful shores of Fitzroy Island on a journey that takes roughly 45 minutes. Once on Fitzroy Island, you'll have up to 6 hours to explore its many stunning natural offerings, taking part in a range of optional activities on both land and water including snorkelling, glass bottom boat tours, self guided walks, guided snorkel tours and much more.

Departing at 8:30am and 10:45am, this Fitzroy Island tour offers a full day of enjoyment at one of Cairns' most popular and accessible Great Barrier Reef areas without breaking the budget. So if you're wanting to get an amazing reef experience without committing too much time or money, be sure to book online today.

Amazing day, I want to go back to Fitzroy Island. Such a great experience.

Great snorkelling spot right off the beach, great bar with drink and food options including cocktails. Snorkelling gear available on the island. Beautiful clear water on a coral beach. Stunning views. I will highlight recommended this day trip to Fitzroy Island.
