Tour Info

The ULTIMATE day tour of the Whitsundays, these legends from Ocean Rafting are at the top of the Whitsundays game and produce awesome memorable trips day in day out. Without a doubt one of our faves as they have created the perfect mix of adrenaline, fun & beautiful locations! They are award winning and we love them for their banter and love for the Whitsundays.

 

These guys will take you for a super fast, fun ride on the inflatable raft with up to 32 others to experience the wild side of the Whitsunday islands. You’ll experience 3 adventures in one day, an exhilarating ride to the famous Whitehaven Beach & Hill Inlet, amazing snorkel spots on the reef and guided Whitsunday Island National Parks walks to the Hill Inlet lookout point to see the iconic Whitsundays aqua swirls! Whilst cruising to the Whitsundays you’ll see the uninhabited islands with unreal scenery with marine, bird and animal life, your onboard Skipper and Eco Host will ensure you have a fun filled adventure as well as letting you in on you awesome facts about the area and the wildlife that lives there. {maybe you’ll even visit a place where a certain pirate film was filmed….}

You’ll be taken to the most instagrammable beach in the world - Whitehaven Beach, this place is the definition of INCREDIBLE and you’ll be wowed at how stunning it is in real life. You’ll be able to take in the beauty of 100% silica sand and crystal clear water, look out for the manta rays and your crew will take you on a guided bush walk up to hill inlet lookout where you will see ‘THE’ view << trust us this ones a beautyyyyyyy, cameras at the ready!

Ocean Rafting have special permits allowing its vessels to visit protected areas in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, which means you’ll get to snorkel at incredible secret spots that other tours don’t! All your snorkel gear is included and the crew will

 


 

 give you a snorkelling demo of how to use the equipment, expect to see turtles, rays, beautiful coral and so many tropical fish.

One of the things we always hear is ‘How good is the ocean rafting lunch?!’ A buffet style lunch is served at the north end of Whitehaven beach and includes an incredible selection! You’ll have plenty of time to swim in the turquoise ocean or just relax on the silica white sand with a beer as the crew have ice cold bevvys on board that can be purchased throughout the day. The Southern Lights tour visits both the northern and southern ends of Whitehaven Beach. Enjoyapproximately two hours relaxing on the world famous white silica sand and enjoy a guidedbushwalk to spectacular Hill Inlet Lookout to view and capture photographs of the stunning swirling silica sands and aqua water. Snorkel for over an hour at Border Island, Dumbell Island or one of the “secret” snorkel spots, enjoying the amazing corals of the reef.

The main difference between Ocean Rafting’s two tours is that the Southern Lights has more beach time and the Northern Exposure offers more snorkelling time.

Sam is literally the most helpful genuine person I've ever met. He actually cares about you having a good time rather then just taking your money. If you want someone to help you with your experience who will give you the right and honest information use these guys.

So glad that we had Sam plan our trip for us. He gave us a rough unitary of our East Coast trip, whilst also sorting out our campervan, Fraser Island trip, Whitsunday and also Sky Dive. Made our travels really easy and enjoyable. Would highly recommend!
