DAY TWO: Fitzroy Island - Island Day Tour - Raging Thunder

Fitzroy Island is only 45 minutes from Cairns and is one of the most unspoilt islands on the Great Barrier Reef.

Being a continental island, it is covered with lush, pristine rainforest. Getting wet and exploring the coral reef surrounding the island, where tropical fish present a rainbow of colour, is as easy as stepping off the beach.

Bird life also abounds here, presenting a natural showcase not to be missed. If you want to explore an idyllic, unspoilt tropical paradise, your choices are plentiful with a day tour to Fitzroy Island.

Spend the day snorkelling the fringing coral reefs, strolling through the National Park rainforest walking tracks, or for the more adventurous hiker, discover breathtaking views of the island and surrounding reefs. There are hiking trails and guided walks as well as numerous water sports options available.


  • A high-speed catamaran from Cairns takes just 45 minutes
  • Departs Cairns at 9am. Check-in 8:15am inside the Reef Fleet Terminal at the Raging Thunder counter.

    Beautiful place

    The Pullman is a beautiful place. Our first night was in an older room on 16th floor. A great view over Cairns.
    When we returned we were on the 4th floor in a totally refurbished room. It is very luxurious.

    An amazing day on Reef Experience. Boat was so well organised and had every moment possible at the Reef. Saw amazing things even though it was very choppy seas. Well worth booking the all inclusive. Didn't have to worry about a thing or pay an extras.
