Things to do in Cairns

Fitzroy Island sea kayaking

  • 7 hours in total

  • Transport, lunch included

  • Pick up at a meet-up point

What To Expect

Sea Kayaks give us easy access to exclusive snorkeling spots on the Great Barrier Reef, which are not easily reachable by large commercial vessels.

These unspoiled locations such as Little Fitzroy Island and Shark Fin Bay (named after a naturally shaped rock), offer hidden wonders to those who visit them, and for many are the highlight of their Cairns holiday.

No prior paddling experience is necessary, and after your tour you have a half a day to explore Fitzroy Island. Swim, snorkel off the beaches or walk through the rainforest trails to Nudey Beach or the Secret Garden.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
