What people are saying about Fitzroy Island
Fun ferry trip with entertaining crew and good views. Approaching Fitzroy Island you see sandy beaches with blue turquoise waters and moored yachts. The walk to the lookout is well worth the effort with spectacular views of distant headlands, white sandy beaches and the jetty where you disembark. I would suggest either doing the circuit via the lighthouse to the summit as you get to appreciate the view back into the bay form numerous points on the decent. Relax with a meal or a couple of drinks at Foxy's which has a large sheltered outdoor area overlooking the bay and jetty. Great day!
I had the best day - the island is wonderful. Nudey beach is a must see and one of the most relaxing places to chill and read a book. Personally, I’d just opt for the snorkelling rather than the glass bottom boat as you can see more. I was lucky enough to swim with a turtle and some of the corals are incredible. I’d bring my trainers next time too so I could hike more of the island. Staff were super friendly and helpful and the journey over was good. I definitely recommend visiting Fitzroy Island!
From start to finish the crew on the Raging Thunder were outrageously funny but super educational. There was plenty to do on the island and all of them were always up for a general chat and lots of questions. Even the rainy weather didnt dampen my day as one of the crew members encouraged me to complete the lighthouse and summit hike saying the sky's will open when you get up there and yup they did just that. Cheers for an awesome day, I was absolutely exhausted but satisfied by the end. :-)
Booking and boarding were great, except for the fact that you can't get seating for a family of 5 because people put their bags on seats or sleep across 4 seats!!! Don't sit on bottom level, everyone gets sick. Fitzroy Island was great for swimming and snorkelling. Saw beautiful coral, fish and swam with turtles. Food is really expensive on island and not that great. Overall an excellent adventure, 3 kids aged 15, 13, 11 and mum and dad loved it. Heaps better snorkelling than Green Island.
The weather was hot, and the water was refreshing! The visibility wasn't perfect for snorkelling off the beach, but I'd imagine the tour boat that leaves the beach could have gotten us to better places. We did manage to find a sea turtle so that was exciting! The summit provides an excellent view, but be prepared for a very steep laborious hike!
