What people are saying about Fitzroy Island
We recommend this day trip. We had a fabulous day snorkeling till the last minute before return. We were even late returning our snorkeling gear, but no worries, the staff was cool and friendly.
We had a good day by the beach snorkling the whole day.. the weather was amazing but the water wasnt really clear and we couldnt aee turtles which was a shame..
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!
Fitzroy Island is amazing. It's a great day trip. I'm not sure if they are more affordable ways to get there, but this was basically an expensive ferry ride to the Island with little value offered other than the ride to Fitzroy 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!
