Attraction details
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.

“Simply the best day ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Without the best fun I had while in Oz. Such a great day, really fun & enjoyable & spending time on the best beach I've ever been to. Without doubt a trip not to be missed. They do a great package for photos/videos to, so got lots of great memories to look at to of the day. Next time I'm in Oz, I'm coming back to do it all over again. Amazing.

“Ocean Rafting Airlie Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

could'nt have been better - well organised - well looked after - well informed about our impact on the reef and the environment - Will and Sarah were great - full of interesting things about the area and stories of the ancient people too. Felt safe in Sarah's hands! and Will was a blast - whole day was fabulous - can't wait to go again.
