The opportunity to work alongside some truly amazing locals has arisen. The guys at Cairns Dive Centre have been running diving and water sports at and around Fitzroy Island and the Great Barrier Reef for decades. As well as raising awareness of the Great Barrier Reef, and providing first class diving instruction and tours, these guys have implemented a number of activities at Fitzroy Island, We are honoured to be a part of the development on Fitzroy, providing stand up paddle board tours, lessons and services.
We will be offering day trips from Cairns, including transfers, a SUP lesson and tour. In addition we will be conducting lessons and tours for guests of the resort and day trippers, as well as implementing some exciting plans for the future.
This is truly one of the gems of Far North Queensland, if not the world!!
Fitzroy Island is located twenty-nine kilometres south-east of Cairns, with transfers taking only 45 minutes by high speed ferry. One of the most unspoiled islands on the Great Barrier Reef, the majority of Fitzroy Island is National Island Park - this includes mangroves, open woodland, tropical pristine rainforest and coral beaches best experienced by the walking trails around the island.
Our day trip from Cairns includes:
- Hotel pick up
- Return transfers to the island
- 2-3 hour paddle board tour with full instruction
You have a full day to spend on the island after your paddle board tour where you can relax, swim, check out the walking trails or enjoy a beverage at the bar.
