Owner description: 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.

“Awesome Plus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Fantastic day out on the Great Barrier Reef. Awesome crew, delicious lunch, great locations. Of all the tours available at Airlie Beach - this one shone out the most to me, especially value for money compared to some of the other tours.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

Loved every second of it. Great snorkelling spot with plenty of colour and a wide variety of sea creatures. Whitehaven beach is incredibly beautiful, the best beach I have seen in Australia. The boats are a LOT of fun and very fast. Great your guides. Fun for the whole family. A must do activity when at the Whitsundays.

“Good fun, great company, fantastic ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

My partner and I went on the ocean rafting trip on Saturday. The crew members were heaps of fun yet still instilled safety procedures and looked after all the guests. The lunch was great with plenty of choice and nice and healthy. We went on the trip that offered more snorkeling and we lucky enough to see a lot of marine life including sea turtles and manta rays. I thought the trip was great value for money. You are out there all day. I would have been happy just with the boat trip. Would recommend and definitely do it again. Thanks to rolly and branden. Great trip.
