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.

I booked this tour through an agency and was pleasantly surprised with how great it was. Sam and Tim were great and the atmosphere was on point. Unlike the other boat tours I had done that week, Ocean Rafting filled the missing gap of thrill and a mini adrenaline rush.

Ocean Rafting was amazing! Quick check in, good safety briefings and equipment, really funny staff who made the day so much fun. The snorkelling spot was beautiful, as was the hill walk. The bbq and beachtime was really chilled. The best part was the raft home that was really choppy. Sit on the edge of the boat if you want... More

My family and I had an absolute blast on the Southern Lights tour. We ranged in ages 24-55 and all had a wonderful time.
