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.

Photographs don't do Whitsunday Beach justice, amazing sea colors, the whitest of sand. But prior to visiting the Whitsunday Beach, snorkling was offered at two locations. The visibility was poor, we expected 10m viz and probably had 4m. Given that it is the world renowned Great Barrier Reef what is happening around the Whitsunday islands? The staff of Ocean Rafting (Sarah and Dylan) do a splendid job and should be congratulated by the Whitsunday Tourist Board.

As a family outing with small children this was a fantastic day, not too early not too late plenty of adventure in between times, and a lovely lunch. The crew were super friendly and really knew their facts. Brilliant!
