We booked onto the 'Tully River Rafting' experience and found it to be great fun. The rapids were many and wild, the food was delicious and the tour guides provided a lot of laughs! A great experience and a fun day out.

We paid the extra $30 to go on the full day extreme on the Tully. This was a great experience because it meant we could be in a smaller group. Because we were in the smaller group we got to do a lot more extra things like jumping off rocks, swimming through some of the slower pools and even one of the rapids. Lunch was a great hamburger with a great view of a small waterfall. If you don't go extreme you do exactly the same trip, it just takes longer and you dont get to leave the boat for the extra activities.

If you want a little excitement go for Raging Thunder. We went for the 1/2 day trip on Barron River, the ride lasted about an hour and there were numerous rapids we went through about 8 to 10 rapids. Our guide Atuchi kept us informed what we needed to do at each of the rapids, we had fun and steered us into the reverse, uhh shuhh I can't tell you about this, you have to go on the trip!

The rapids were thrilling, you WILL get wet and maybe even fall overboard. It's a short enough ride you can still lay in the sun for several hours, you are away 2p to 6p

If you want to try something different - DO IT!
