This was a fantastic day out and a must do. Hire snorkelling gear and enjoy the island. I would do the lighthouse and summit walk first and finish off with snorkelling. You'll need it to cool down. There is alot of equipment to carry i advise finiding a nice spot to snorkel and park there for the day. Foxys bar was great for a feed. There are lockers to hire.

Beautiful Island. Very friendly staff, great steak sandwich. Make sure you take reef shoes with you as the beach is white coral. Very enjoyable day.

A beautiful island with crystal clear water. Snorkeling with turtles is an incredible experience.

Booked a Fitzroy Island trip & can highly recommend! Nice friendly staff & high level of safety.

Get a locker on the island and do the safari snorkelling tour
