    Definitely worth taking the Fitzroy flyer for a day trip at Fitzroy island. Takes about 45 minutes to travel out there. If you want to you can stay in the Fitzroy island resort which was amazing to relax after exploring the island during the day. The coral reef here is so convenient and close to shore that you can just swim straight out from the beach. About 10 metres out and the reef can be accessed. If you're lucky you can swim with a turtle or two. If you cannot find one then the turtle rehab centre have tours available. Definitely worth visiting.

    It was a pretty nice first experience to travel to an island with a reef. The staff on our boat were very friendly and helpful, and were very clear and concise when it came to delivering instructions and information about our day on the island. We had also booked the beginner’s tour for snorkelling as it was our first time. Although we weren’t very accustomed to snorkelling yet, our guide was very informative and supportive of us, and had helped us stay afloat whilst giving us a very detailed tour off the coast above the coral reef. We had plenty of time to explore the island and relax, and although the reef we had explored weren’t very clear or colourful we still enjoyed the experience.

    You took us across today and what superb weather it was. A bit choppy however on the way back, your captain is clearly very experienced as he seemed to ride the waves rather than smash through like some operators do. The crew were all really friendly. A local guy on the boat, I think called Tim was really interesting and knowledgeable on our trip back and answered all our questions about the local area. What a great team. A suggestion if the crew were up for it was the Aboriginal stories of their ancestors and local communities really make this area of the world unique and to integrate that into the journey is something I think a lot of tourists would appreciate as it's really interesting. For people who were complaining about the lunch, I eat a lot and it did the job (meat pasta). Even with us hiking up to the lighthouse and then swimming for over an hour in the sea. Thanks again Matt

    The stand out for this island was Nudey Beach which had amazing clear water, coral and plenty of marine life compared to the beach opposite the turtle aquarium. The team on board were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. It would have been easier to listen if the speaker above us was working. The boat itself was on the older end compared to others and weathered. Overall recommend this tour for a day out to explore the huge island with various hikes, secret garden and beaches. Thank you !
