I chose to do the 3 hr Kayaking tour with raging thunder. It was 3 hrs including the instruction and prep, however, we didn't get to swim/snorkel at our destination as the winds had picked up and tides too high to moor kayaks. We did see a few turtles whilst kayaking. There are many levels of experience on this tour.... More

These guys are great,they even helped Wm get on the next boat (only 2 boat trips per day.) as I missed the first one due to mistake of my own. The ride across and the employees are great, friendly, informative and fun. The island it's self has a lot to do... I just wouldn't recommend going there solo, take some... More

My friends and I went to Fitzroy Island after hearing Green Island was booked out the day we were interested in going. I will tell you we were not disappointed! First off, every local we talked to said they go to the island on their days off which is telling. Second, Raging Thunder is the easiest and most fun way... More

We went to Fitzroy Is with Raging Thunder. The staff were friendly and professional. It takes about 45 min to get there from Cairns. We brought our own snorkeling, but you can hire it when you arrive. The water was clear and we had a great time spotting the fish near the rocks. The beach is made of dead coral... More

I took my wife and two boys one is 9 the other 13. The trip out and back was quick and a small thrill. The boys enjoyed it because it was quick. The idea for the visit was to see if the boys were comfortable snorkelling. The snorkelling off the beach is good to ok and very safe Great for... More

Worked as a tour guide for a school group and was booked on Raging Thunder to transfer to Fitzroy Island. First off, the crew is very professional, and the transfer is fast. The crew are also on the island for the day doing glass bottom boat and handing out snorkelling equipment; I am terrible with names but all the crew... More

My husband and I went to Fitzroy island with raging thunder ferries. We had a fantastic day! Staff were, fun, friendly and informative. Once we got on the island we decided we wanted to go sea kayaking, so we headed straight over to the beach hire hut, but we were told it was to be pre booked, which we were... More

Raging thunder were really nice and made the day run very smoothly. Fitzroy island was beautiful even though it was raining. I would not recommend the island if you have trouble walking as the sand is covered in coral.

Would highly recommend this for an excellent day out which is good value. We booked for the activity pass 2 which gives you lunch, endless use of equipment and a glass bottom boat tour. We took our snorkelling equipment to Nuddy beach which is about 20 minutes walk from the ferry pier; this gives you amazing views of the coral... More
