Fitzroy Island Sea Kayak and Snorkel Day Trip
With its white beaches, tropical rain forest, and colorful coral reefs, Fitzroy Island is THE best place to enjoy the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. This full-day tour from Cairns includes a guided sea kayak and snorkel tour, viewing turtles, rays, fish and stunning coral reef. The afternoon is free to explore the island, hike to the summit, visit the turtle rehabilitation centre, or simply relax on the beach.
Your day begins with a pick-up from your Cairns hotel and a short transfer to Cairns Marina to board your boat. Set sail along the coast and soak up the stunning scenery on the 45-minute cruise to Fitzroy Island
On arrival, get set up straight away with equipment for the tour. After learning how to manoeuvre your tandem sea kayak, set out on a thrilling 3-hour adventure cruising the fringing island reef. Depending on the weather, the tour can take us to Little Fitzroy Island, or even round to hidden beach where we have the opportunity to snorkel. Marvel at the ocean views and colorful corals below as you paddle around the island, and swim and snorkel amid schools of exotic fish and other marine life.
Back on shore, re-fuel with snacks and refreshments before setting out to explore the island on your own. Perhaps take a hike through the rainforest, join a glass-bottom boat tour or introductory SCUBA Dive (own expense, can be arranged for customers), enjoy lunch (own expense) at one of the island’s restaurants, or simply relax by the beachside.
At 3.00pm, meet back up with your guide for the return transfer to Cairns, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
