Excellent trip and great value for a FULL day of entertainment. Boat and crew were very helpful, and gear supplied worked very well. Not a good swimmer no prob as they offer for very small fee an excellent intro to snorkeling course. Fitzroy Island such a beautiful place with plenty to do and explore. You will not regret this trip, I will be back.

My wife and I loved Fitzroy Island, we spent a day trip there. Swimming at nudey was beautiful, also there was corals and fish south behind the rocks. We went on the glass bottom boat, I think the area was shark fin bay and we saw a turtle munching on coral or algae. Also Foxy’s cafe was great, the food, music and the view of the ocean.

Nice place for hike, snorkeling and other water activities. The glass bottom boat tour is really good, get to see a lot of corals and we were lucky enough to see a sea turtle also!

It was amazing!! Had the best time and staff were very helpful and friendly.

Lovely trip, well organised, it all felt very professional
