Great tour to a beautiful island with amazing beaches and lots of sea life - perfect for snorkelling.

We had only booked a half-day tour, because the full-day tour was fully booked. Nevertheless, it was a great tour. We have snorkelled at the beautiful beaches and have even seen ray fishes and a turtle beside colourful fish! This island trip is also perfect for families with kids!

Great half-day tour on Fitzroy Island with my family.

Great half-day tour. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We chose this half-day to suit our toddler and it worked out very well. Water was picture-perfect. Easy walk to Nudey Beach and great food and drink in between. Will book again. Thank you!!!!

Fun day and a beautiful island. Enjoyable day. Picturesque scenery.

Delayed 'technical issue' departure, but once on our way, the trip was great. The boat ride to/from was easy - thank you Lochie. Overall the staff & the island were really nice and helpful. Enjoyed the 30-minute Glass Bottom boat trip with Keegan. Enjoyed a delicious fish and chips lunch at Roxys Bar overlooking the water. Had a nice swim (no stinger suit as it was the end of stinger season) at the beach near the jetty. I would advise wearing aqua beach shoes as the beach is mostly coral (tough on the feet) and not sandy.
