Great day out
Did a full day at Fitzroy
snorkelling was excellent with plenty of coral variety and good visibility. Lots of colourful fish and a few turtles.
Did the walk to Nudie Beach. A lot of steps and ups and downs but well worth it.
Had lunch at the bar. Can recommend the seafood platter.
Having been to both islands on day trips, I would rank Fitzroy Island ahead of Green island as it was much bigger, had more facilities and the coral had more variety.
We snorkelled around the reef of Fitzroy Island and saw turtles and vibrant coloured fish. A family favourite.
Staff were great. We loved the island, the glass boat was fantastic. Will definitely do this trip again, and again. Highly recommend!
It was a great trip. Snorkeling from the beach was perfect, lot to see.
Nice Glass-Bottom-Boat Tour.
Not my favorite place. Not interested. Won’t come . That is my commons. I don’t want to say any more
