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.

We did the Southern Lights tour (actually we did the package with the scenic flight with GSL which I would recommend) and it was a great day. Riding on the boat was a lot of fun and we started the day with our bush walk to see the famous Hill Inlet. Then we stopped at a nice snorkel spot before... More

Amazing day , no surprise this company brings home tourism awards! From check in to days end, the whole show is seamless - it is professional and loaded with fast and furious fun! My six year old did not want the day to end, and honestly nor did I! A must do, you will not be sorry!

Brodie and Tom took us out today on our trip. It was the single most amazing trip of Airlie Beach. I highly recommend doing ocean rafting as the crew are very knowledgeable about the islands and where the most private spots are. Great food and even better views!!

At Peter Pan's at Airlie Beach we had booked a day tour at Ocen Rafting. We picked the Northern Exposure for $164. This included a visit to the beautiful Whitehaven Beach on a fast boat and snorkeling twice. Due to the super moon there were a lot of waves and rough water.

From start till end, this trip was amazing. We were on the red boat, "thunderstruck". Both the hosts made the day. They were funny, knowledgeable and really created a good mood on the boat. We stopped at 2 beautiful snorkeling spots, however the highlight was definitely Whitehaven beach. The boat was nice and fast and the crew made it so... More

I went on this with my adult daughter and we had a blast. Crew was energetic and fun. Stops were great and we saw lots of fishes, coral, and even a few sea turtles and small, harmless lemon sharks. Lunch was tasty and the whole thing was well-organized. Highle recommend.
