There are two exciting tour options, the Northern Exposure and Southern Lights, and each Ocean Rafting day includes an exhilarating ride to Whitehaven Beach, pristine snorkelling reefs and guided Whitsunday Island National Parks walks. Ocean Rafting is the only tour to have direct access to the stunning and iconic Hill Inlet beach, and special snorkel sites at Hook Island and Border Island ensure a memorable underwater experience.The semi rigid inflatable vessels are super fast allowing guests to experience a fun ride, adventure and education amongst the natural beauty of the Whitsundays. The vessels were originally designed and built as rescue crafts and are driven by 450hp engines. 70% of the vessel is shaded, providing comfort from the tropical sun. Small groups allow guests to experience tropical paradise away from the crowds.Ocean Rafting has been operating since 1997 and is proud to have special permits allowing its vessels to visit protected areas in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The Skipper and Eco Host will ensure guests have a fun filled adventure and personalised service, from the courtesy bus pick up in the morning to snorkel lessons and a guided National Park walk in the Whitsunday Islands. « less

Forget about even looking at any other tour. Book with ocean rafting, end of. We booked a double tour, went out on a Friday for the northern tour and Sunday for the southern tour. The skippers made the day. Dylan and Roley.. Legends.

If you go to Airlie Beach, this is an absolute must-do!! We decided to go on the Northern Tour. You can also opt for the Southern Tour. A shuttle arrived to pick us up from our accommodation to take us to the Coral Sea (?) resort for check in. You go through reception and out the back to the dock.... More

WOW very exciting very well organised and we felt from the moment we sat on the raft that these guys knew what they were doing. Our tour guides need a big heads up so Dylan and Angus made the day fun but kept everything safe and effortless . It's a must do . Thank you from Joe and Ann .... More

We had a fantastic time, this is one very well organised tour company. The guides were great, the boat ride awesome as was the snorkelling, swimming and the views. I would definitely recommend this tour as good value for money and even with my arthritic knees it was reasonably easy to participate in everything, just the right length of time.... More

I had the best day yesterday on this tour, doing the Northern route of the tour; opting for 2 snorkeling spots, the best part for me was the first snorkeling place, the coral was beautiful and there was heaps of different types of fish to see. I just wish we could have had a little longer here. The second spot... More
