The quickest way to get to Fitzroy Island is by ferry from Cairns.
A spectacular tour that starts from Marlin Wharf. When you book through one of our partners your tickets are scanned at the ticket counter and you are free to go. It's as easy as that. Especially the views on this ferry are amazing.
Don't forget to travel to Nudey beach when you arrive at the island, what we also really liked was the glass-bottom boat.
A very important tip on this transfer: When you go to Fitzroy Island, book a full day, on a half-day trip you can only do one activity. Which you will regret when you are traveling back. A full day gives you a much better experience.
