Our Fitzroy island Sea Kayaking was made memorable by the exceptional service and attention of our kayaking guide, Jordan. He is knowledgeable, authentic, engaging and knows just when to be unobtrusive, allowing for a natural and enjoyable experience. These fantastic people skills and a genuine interest in the natural environment and history will take him far! What a wonderful day out on the water - thank you!

We were looking forward to this part of our vacation ever since booking it. It was a dream come true to kayak in the Great Barrier Reef, and we were not disappointed because our guide was extremely competent and knowledgeable. He took us to Little Fitzroy Island, where he showed us amazing views, told us about the history, and pointed out the unique wild life. We also had time to snorkel in a setting that was our own. Throughout the day the staff was very personable, kind and courteous, and went out of their way to make sure that our experience was optimal.

The kayaking was great
A great day out at Fitzroy, except for the rain! The guys on the boat were really funny and cheeky. The kayaking was great, except we would have liked to spend a little longer out there because where we snorkelled we could have just walked to (due to the weather). The snorkelling was amazing and I swam with a Hawksbill Sea Turtle! The facilities were lacking a bit with the resort not open, so we had to bring our own food. The only toilets on the island had no toilet paper, were dirty and some had no seats. Overall, we really enjoyed our time relaxing, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and exploring the island!

kayaking was excellent and enjoyable
he actual kayaking was excellent and enjoyable. The Fitzroy Island facilities, despite the rebuilding, have a lot to be desired. Snorkelling was the only activity on offer.
