    fitzroy thunderbolt is just that

    Very good set up and well worth it. Just a trip on the thunderbolt in slightly choppy seas is worth it. But the surrounding facilities and reasonable prices are all excellent.

    Amazing Creatures of the Deep

    Fitzroy Island is a magical wonderland, I was amazed to see so many amazing sea creatures, but the highlight of the day was definitly seeing one of the origional cast of Cat's dancing on the beach in a full black lycra suit.. Truly Breath Taking!
