The boat staff were really nice, especially JEFF! Definitely book this tour with them!! And Fitzroy Island was so so good! I highly recommend the glass bottom boat tour with snorkeling -- I saw amazing marine life and even a shark! Then have lunch at Foxys' Cafe (the calamari was sooo good and big portion too). Then do stand-up paddle boarding in the afternoon and just chill out till the boat comes.

could be better

only interesting if you want to spend extra money to swim, if you just want to see the great barreer rif, that it's a lot of money for what you get.
