We did the day long glass bottom boat and snorkel tour. Left the pier after 9am and got to island around 10am. Saw dolphins and a whale on the way. Comfy ride in the sun. Once landed, we booked the glass bottom boat ride. Until the glass bottom ride, we got to use the included smaller kayaks, standup paddle boards... More

The boat ride is minutes from Cairns so you can be swimming off the coral beach soon. The pristine reef, a short swim off the beach, has some really lovely hard and soft corals and a huge variety of coloured fish. We saw a man call "turtle" but never managed to see one ourselves but others told us they saw... More

So many options for our first trip to the Great Barrier Reef- went with Raging Thunder's trip to Fitzroy and decided on the sea kayaking and snorkeling option. So glad we did! Definitely one of the highlights of our trip! The guided kayak tour was perfect for our family of four (including non-swimmers). Drew and Albert were really awesome- they... More

We went with a 12 yr old and a 9 yr old. It's a long day......mind you it was raining for the last two hours..... The booking process was great and very responsive so I had high hopes. But the crew on the day were youngish and could use a few more manners.....I think they must aim for the younger... More

Me and my boyfriend wanna do kayaking and only Ranging thunder offer this, so we book with them. All staffs were nice and friendly. Unfortunately, in the morning the weather was really bad, big wave and windy, so they decided to go back to Cairns due to safety first. They refund total fee for us. Good company! Recommend!

We booked the Activity Pass 1 last Tuesday and had the most amazing day of snorkelling, swimming, kayaking and relaxing on a tropical island. Fitzroy Island is beautiful with shady beaches and clear blue waters. Turn left off the jetty and you even find a level sandy beach to enjoy. The lunch was fresh, delicious and nutritious- perfect for a... More

We bought the Activity Pass 1, without lunch. This included the Catarman transfer, kayak for an hour, standup paddle boards, snorkel gear. Activity pass 2 has glass bottom boat and snorkel gear etc included. On the day take your booking number to the reef terminal to get your boarding passes, before you go onto the boat. The service was friendly... More

We booked the activity pass which included the use of snorkel equipment and the non motorised water things including the paddle boards, this included a glass bottom boat tour, which got a bit of a...

What a great day we had at Fitzroy Island! The island is absolutely beautiful with lots to do - snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, glass bottom boat, kayaking, water trampoline and nice walks. We took a packed lunch and just bought ice creams from the general store and a drink later from the bar. The Raging Thunder staff on board... More
