Fitzroy Island lets you experience the rainforest, the reef and a tropical island all in the one day from Cairns. Fitzroy Island is only a 45 minute boat ride from Cairns and getting there is quite spectacular in itself as you skirt alongside the truly beautiful coastline. Fitzroy Island is quite mountainous and provides multiple walking tracks for the keen hiker, and is also home to the famous Nudey Beach (not a nudist beach). You can also enjoy snorkelling in a variety of locations off the Island or even join a glass bottom coral viewing boat tour.
Book just a ferry ticket only or choose to include a packed picnic lunch, snorkelling equipment and/or glass bottom boat tour to your day!
Snorkel and explore the fringing coral reefs in both Welcome Bay and Nudey Beach at your leisure, with hard and soft corals only meters from the shore. Flotation vests & lycra suits are included.
Glass Bottom Boat Tour
