  • Description
    • Get out on the water for a return cruise from Cairns to Fitzroy Island
    • Enjoy over six hours of free time on the lush tropical island
    • Swim, relax on the beach and take self-guided rainforest walks

    Less than an hour off the shore of Cairns, Fitzroy Island is a little slice of absolute tropical paradise. Set sail for the island and spend over six hours in beach and rainforest heaven with this return cruise transfer from Cairns. This is a must-do for Cairns locals and visitors alike. 

    You’ll be heading out in the morning from Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal on a comfortable, air-conditioned catamaran that will take you over crystal blue water to Fitzroy Island. Then the day is yours to enjoy as you please. 

    With 99% of the island landscape covered in lush tropical rainforest, you might want to explore some of the self-guided rainforest walks. There are also granite outcrops, open woodlands, mangroves, and of course, the pristine coral beaches are a huge draw card. Lounge on the golden sandy shores, go for a swim in the azure water, hire snorkels, and enjoy your time however you like while in tropical paradise. 

    In the late afternoon you’ll be taken back to Cairns on board the catamaran after an unforgettable day on Fitzroy Island.
