    What to Expect
    Make your own way to check-in at the Reef Fleet Terminal for the morning departure of the Fitzroy Island high-speed ferry crossing, which generally takes around 45 minutes.

    Located only 18.5 miles (30 km) from Cairns, Fitzroy Island lies within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Its protected coral reef offers excellent snorkeling from the beach and is home to colorful hard and soft corals, tropical fish, sea turtles and other marine life.

    Spend the day as you wish, with options that include snorkeling, swimming and kicking back on the beach. The underwater world offers the rainbow colors of the parrotfish, clown fish darting in and out of anemones, and many other marine critters. On land, you can follow hiking trails through the rainforest and along the coast.

    Upgrade to the Activity Pass, a cost-effective option that includes the use of snorkel gear, stand-up paddle boards, paddle skis and a floating ocean trampoline, plus a glass-bottom boat tour and a delicious picnic lunch. Depending on availability, you can use water floats and other gear for children, making this a family-friendly way option on the island.

    At the end of the day, return on the ferry to Cairns where your tour ends.
