Fitzroy Island boat transfers with Raging Thunder Cruises is a fantastic way to spend the day at beautiful Fitzroy Island. Combining transfers to and from Cairns, the Fitzroy Island boat transfers with Raging Thunder Cruises offers a fast efficient way to get to this inner reef Island.

Fitzroy Island is a continental island which is located about 30km offshore from Cairns. Continental means that it once used to be connected to the mainland, but was separated hundreds of thousands of years ago by rising water levels. The 339-hectare island is a mostly protected national park with a wide variety of terrain and vegetation including fringing tropical reefs, coral beaches, mangroves, open woodland and rainforest. It also features a resort with restaurant and bar facilities.

Spend your day exploring this tropical island with inner reef coral and white sandy beaches and for the more strenuous, a lighthouse walk or summit walk to the very top of Fitzroy Island (Elevation 269 meters). Or, you can just choose to chill out at the island bar, have a few drinks, and buy lunch.

Please note you cannot bring your own alcohol onto the island as it is a National Park and resort is a licensed premise.

Itinerary:

This day tour is run by Raging Thunder Cruises and commences with check-in at the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal from 8 am. Your transfer vessel is called the Fitzroy Flyer, which is moored a short walk away, at the nearby Marlin Marina. Boarding is from 8.15 am onwards: the boat departs as soon as all guests are on board.

The Fitzroy Flyer catamaran has indoor and outdoor seating and provides a fast, smooth ride to nearby Fitzroy Island, which takes around 45-minutes (pending weather). On arrival at the island, you follow the signs to the beach activity hire hut, right next to the jetty, which is where you can set up on the beach and prepare to spend your day.

There’s plenty to do at Fitzroy Island. You can snorkel from the beach or explore the island’s many self-guided walking trails. We suggest taking bottled water with you on the walks, as most of them are quite strenuous, especially the lighthouse trail and summit walking track (which takes you 269m up the mountain). You must be back on the boat no later than 3.30 pm for the return journey, which will see you arrive in Cairns around 4:45 pm.

Lunch is not provided as this is a Ferry Transfer Service only. But you can purchase meals and drinks from the Island Resort Bar. You are also welcome to bring your own lunch but please note: You are not allowed to bring your own Alcohol as the Island is a National Park and the Resort is a Licensed Premises.
