Thursday the 22nd of August.
I stood on the beach with about 15 other people and watched in awe as we could see at least 2 whales blowing their blow holes about 1km off shore, so we grabbed some sea kayaks and paddled out from the beach of Fitzroy Island, with only one direction to go... "toward the whales!"
As we paddled we could see there were more than just 2, there were 4 all up and one was a calf. They frollicked around a yacht out in the distance for a while before heading off.
On the ferry home, we were lucky enough to spot the same 4 beautiful creatures, they seemed to just be playing with one another although the skipper informed us we were in about 5m of water so we would not be witnessing any breaches. We watched the majestic animals from around 50m away, for about 20 mintues. To say it was amazing, would the be the understatement of the year!

Fitzroy Sea Kayaking Reviews

Always an amazing day on the island. A special mention goes to the staff, they were so helpful and gave great advice as to the best snorkelling locations and coral viewing while on the kayaks. Perfect way to end a long week. Highly recommend using Raging Thunder when going to Fitzroy Island.

We signed up for the kayaking online which was very easy. Easy to find the check in area at the terminal. We parked in public parking which was easy too. Ferry ride was smooth and easy. Upon arriving we were able to walk around a bit while the kayaks were readied and then we kayaked for about an hour (2 per kayak). We took a break on a small beach and were able to snorkel on our own for a while - a snack, water and all the gear were provided. Pretty impressive snorkeling!. Then we kayaked back. We had half the day to ourselves to walk to a secluded beach - Nudey Beach which was very nice. All in all a great day on a pretty quiet island. There is also a hotel on the island where we used the bathrooms and changed our clothes. We would definitely recommend.
