  • Choose two options from four included activities :- glass bottom boat ride, snorkelling equipment hire, one-hour sea kayak hire or one-hour paddle board hire.
  • Seven blissful hours in paradise!

With a 8:00 am, departure time, you'll meet at E Finger on the Marlin Marina, Cairns, at 7:30 am and board the fast day boat, for your 45-minute journey to Fitzroy Island. Relax on board and take in the stunning ocean views along the way.

The 339 hectare Fitzroy Island is an idyllic tropical island whose reef forms part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Lush tropical rainforests cover most of the island and these are threaded through with delightful walking tracks that lead all over the island. The sweeping white sanded beaches are the ideal place to while away the hours with a good book, or jump in for a refreshing swim in cobalt blue waters. If you're feeling peckish, why not visit the cafe or bar for a bite to eat and a cold drink to wash it all down with? Meanwhile, the equipment hire shop has everything you need to make your visit a truly exciting, fun adventure, including underwater cameras so you can take your memories home with you.

Included in your price are two activities. You can choose either a glass bottomed boat ride to see the coral reef and all its sea life residents, or a one-hour sea kayak adventure, one hour of paddle boarding, or snorkelling with free equipment hire. Whichever activity you choose, you'll be able to seek assistance in your decision from the excellent staff, who are always on hand to help out or offer advice.

At the end of an activity filled day, you'll re-board and head back to Cairns, arriving back on the mainland at around 5:00 pm.
