Crew were incredibly friendly, helpful and looked like they were enjoying their jobs. They also did little extras like pointing out fish we could see alongside the ferry on boarding and asking how our day was. The picnic lunch was enough and was well balanced....More

We loved our day on Fitzroy Island. Great activities to do. Snorkelling was easy off the beach, we saw lots of turtles, range of fish and coral. Picnic lunch was yummy and definitely enough to fill everyone up. Great day out
