your experience

Once a part of mainland Australia, Fitzroy Island is now surrounded by fringing coral reefs that provide a sheltered home for fish and corals. This half-day tour to this gleaming island from Cairns is well planned out for your benefit. Start off with a ferry ride to the island, with an expert tour guide keeping you company. Learn about the 339 hectares of lush rainforest that cover about 94% of the island and other intriguing facts. With a plethora of interesting activities to partake in, you're all set! Whether you want to trek through the wilderness, snorkel through the shimmering waters, or work your tan on the sandy shores of the beach, you're good to go!

You can upgrade your ticket and choose to add a scrumptious lunch, a Glass Boat tour or a Snorkel Safari tour to your cruise! The Glass Boat tour will allow you to see the stunning marine creatures of Cairns without dipping into its waters. A transparent bottom will let you take a close look at everything in the aquatic world underground as you sail on the water. During the Snorkel Safari, a boat will drop you off at one of the abundant coral reefs Fitzroy Island has to offer. The Safari gives exclusive access to areas not accessible to other guests. With marine biologists keeping you company during this snorkeling adventure, you'll learn about the exotic marine life up close.
