Ocean Rafting visits the “Wild Side” of the Whitsunday Islands, the uninhabited islands with beautiful natural scenery brimming with marine, bird and animal life. 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.

Even tho it rained it didn't matter because it's so beautiful here!! Coming from someone who has been on the anaconda three (which goes out to the outer reef) this tour offers far more quality for your money! Including the food! Go for gold and go on this tour! Turtles, whales, stingrays and tropical coral reefs!! ☀️☔️⭐️

You won't believe what you are looking at!! The photos do not do the trip justice. Our tour guide went above and beyond (especially Will..you are my favourite) and if you don't do this tour you are CRAZY. I will be talking about it for many years to come

Ocean rafting experience is one of the best one day trip we made. It was well organized and well staffed. The guides were very knowledgeable and took care of us very well.

We decided on this particular company as they offer a package with GSL Aviation and we were pretty keen to see the islands from air and sea. It was a great choice to make, the team who took us on the tour were great and informative and the trip was fun!!! We've been on plenty of boat tours before and... More

What a great day out. We took the northern exposure option and it was perfect. Great snorkeling lunch on the most perfect setting. You cannot imagine a beach more perfect the term paradise definitely warranted here. Some great driving from keith and thanks to ross. Great crew great job
