A national park with plenty of activities like nature walks, snorkelling, kayaking in addition to you spending one night on the island in a quad share cabin.

This is a fantastic option for you for you to learn to dive and experience the wonders of Fitzroy Island and the Great Barrier Reef. This course includes two days of pool and theory work, with the four training dives completed from both the beautiful Fitzroy Island and the Great Barrier Reef.

The beauty of diving from Fitzroy Island is that you can simply walk off the beach and into the dive. With an exclusive Dive Shop and an array of equipment and experienced Dive Instructors taking you around the sites.
