Beautiful, the coral is very close and there are a great diversity of marine life, I swam with a turtle! The beach and the island are very pretty. Is a pity that for those that are not hosted in the resort the snorkel equipment rent is only available from 1 PM.

Big three level catamaran quite big and stable. The young lady staff was very friendly and helpful when I started experience a bit of motion sickness at one stage.

Fitzroy Island Day Trip from Cairns
It was a good day for Fitzroy island. We bought the package including glass bottom ship and snorkelling equipment hiring. We also selected the guided snorkelling tour, which is highly recommended for those haven't snorkelled before. The walking trail to the peak roughly took 2.5 hours. The scenery at the top is stunning, but wouldn't recommend it if you are not physically fit.

Fitzroy Island Day Trip from Cairns
Our family added the guided afternoon snorkeling tour in Shark Fin Bay. This was our favorite activity of the day! Pro tip: definitely remember shoes or sandals as there is only a coral beach.

Snorkeling at white rock was amazing saw a sea turtle take an underwater camera it's worth it ♡ remember to wear sandals or swimming shoes for the coral on the beach is pointy and owie. Bradley on the boat made our (hubby n i) trip there and back delightfully epic with his funny tune and just being a bubbly person. this trip was worth every cent
