Once on Fitzroy Island, you'll have five hours to explore its many stunning natural offerings, taking part in a range of activities on both land and water including snorkelling, glass bottom boat tours, kayaking, island adventures and much more. Departing at 8:30am and 10:45am, this Fitzroy Island ferry tour offers a full day of enjoyment at one of Cairns' most popular and accessible Great Barrier Reef areas without breaking the budget.

Awesome! Had a great time. My friend and I would definitely use this service again.

Lovely boat ride over! Friendly staff, super relaxed. Bathroom on board. Fitzroy was awesome we could’ve spent so much longer there, heaps more to do. If you need you can hire wet suits and snorkelling gear to optimise your experience! But we brought our own and had a wonderful time!

I give it 4.5 stars - great experience, would recommend it!

Fitzroy Island was beautiful despite the rain! We joined the 50-minute snorkelling safari. Would recommend the safari over the snorkelling experience as you get to see amazing corals! The crew from Fitzroy Island Adventures and Experience Oz were also friendly, experienced and helpful.
