What they’ve said about us

Liza Robbins

We regularly visit Fitzroy Island as it is one of our favourite places for a family day out! The boat, food and staff are also fantastic and I can highly recommend a hike to the summit to take in the incredible views with a snorkel afterwards to cool off!

Wendy Woo

Stunning island, lots of activities, the crew from Fitzroy Island Adventures were fantastic. Lunch was more than ample and delicious. Highly recommend for a fun filled day out. We will be back.

Pierre Lagadec

Highly recommended! We did the Fitzroy Island full day tour including glass bottom boat. It was great, we had plenty of time to hike around all the walking trails, have a swim at the beach, have some lunch and enjoy the glass bottom boat tour. We didn't take the picnic option offered with the tour but found a nice pub/restaurant with reasonable prices and nice food options. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful too.

Andrea Bradley

We had a wonderful day. Lots of good snorkeling - nice reefs toward the rocks, a lot of fish at Nudey beach. We enjoyed the turtle rehabilitation center. A little hike to Nudey beach - wish we made more time to spend there. What I liked about Raging Thunder are their times of departure and arrival. Very convenient for us. Also, their staff was extremely friendly with great service.

Liraz

Beautiful place, the staff was very kind, excellent snorkeling gear and beach gear (kayaks and sups), good lunch, had a great time.

Deirdre Shiels

Brilliant day spent on the island. My trip included snorkelling gear. You can hire kayaks and paddle boards on the island.
Staff were friendly and helpful throughout the day. The map given on check-in was helpful to show you where everything was.
The island itself is absolutely stunning the day trip definitely worth it. Would definitely book again with Fitzroy Island Adventures.
