New 'Bubblemakers' scuba experience for children in Fitzroy Island Resort

Kids can learn to scuba dive in a safe and fun environment with the new Bubblemaker program at Fitzroy Island Resort in Queensland. Children aged eight to 12 get the chance to use scuba gear to breathe and explore underwater in the pool, blow bubbles and play games under the direct supervision of a PADI professional. All children take home a PADI activity pack, which includes a beach towel, logbook, toy, certificate and registration card, decals, a tattoo and emblem. And if they really love the experience, they can do it all again for a discounted fee with the resort’s ‘Bubblemaker Repeat’ offer.

The 1.5-hour Bubblemaker program is held every Tuesday and Saturday from 9.30am, with other days possible on request. It costs $125, and a medical declaration must be provided.

Just a 45-minute boat ride from Marlin Marina in Cairns, the affordable resort is also home to a Turtle Rehabilitation Centre that guests can visit during their stay. The resort’s main restaurant, Zephyr, is open for breakfast and dinner, while the beachfront Foxy’s Bar & Grill is a more casual option, ideal for families, with bingo nights, trivia and live music throughout the week. Other activities available at the resort include guided bushwalks, children’s arts and crafts, and educational talks about the Great Barrier Reef. Guests can also explore the beauty of Fitzroy Island and the Reef with glass bottom boat tours and snorkelling, hire kayaks and stand-up paddleboards from the Dive and Adventure Centre, and enjoy cruises to the Outer Great Barrier Reef.
