Overview
More
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.

Can't speak highly enough if how great this experience was. We booked the northern exposure tour and were taken to some great snorkelling spots along with the beautiful Whitehaven beach. However, the best part of this tour was the friendly and enthusiastic staff. In particular...More

Definitely a must do activity. The crew were amazing. The food was great. We saw about a dozen whales, dolphins and mantarays. So much more exciting than a cruise. Highly recommend this adventure.

I took the southern Ocean Refting tour. Because the southern tour spends more time at Withehaven beach than the other tour. It is so nice I have never had this kind of experience. It is so me!

Yes not a problem at all....we have storage for bags under the seats and it is a great idea to bring your phone in a water resistant bag! We look forward to hopefully seeing you soon!
