      Very disappointing- Not a jet boat with High speed turns.
      VERY DISAPPOINTED The tour was advertised online as "Power across the crystal clear waters of Mooloolaba during this action - packed rafting adventure. in a 350 horse power boat, your experienced skipper will perform high speed turns and wave rides that will keep you on the edge of your seat" It was nothing like that it was not a 350 horse power engine boat, there was no "high speed turns" it was more like a gentle cruise down the river learning about the multi million dollar homes, the eco system and the wildlife? If you want a gentle cruise down the river with various wildlife and local points of interest being pointed out then this is for you. I have contacted the tour provider with our disappointment and to be honest they really seem like they don't care. Make sure you understand what you are paying for!

      Great whale watching trip.
      What a great fun afternoon! I loved the smaller boat. We only had 16 on board. Max 20. Brendan & Jake where excellent. Lots of informative info, laughs, tunes & we saw a turtle, dolphins & whales. I will definitely be back . Thanks guys. Shelley & Scotty

      Enjoyed our turtle tour
      We booked this tour last year but unfortunately the weather cancelled it for us. The company was very helpful rebooking our trip a couple of times, and eventually six of us made the tour, with one friend who couldn’t join us refunded without an issue. The tour itself was terrific, we all enjoyed the commentary learning about and getting up close to Mudjimba Island, and learning about local turtles. Highly recommend to others!

      Put this on your bucket list
      It is the best experience on the Sunshine Coast. Captain brendon is the best tour guide one could ever have. He is careful of the people on the ride, has the greatest sense of humour, and his commentaries are ten out of ten, best white knuckle fun and worth every cent

      Awesome experience with Adventure Rafting
      The boat trip was fantastic in itself and exhilarating. Our skipper was very informative and entertaining as we went in search of whales. We saw a pod of dolphins and it was only when we were about to head back that whales were sighted. Not only did we see a wonderful breach in the distance but were treated to an amazing show right next to the boat as they came to us! The whales were fascinating to watch and we were told our experience was rare and called a 'mugging'! They were obviously really curious to see us too. Was a once in a life time experience and so glad we chose to go. Highly recommend this company.

      Whale Watching Tour
      Unfortunately the seas were very rough and no whales to be found (not for the want of trying by the driver) we learnt plenty about the local area and the whales mid June is possibly a little early. We will try again later in the year. Looking forward to seeing to another trip with Adventure Rafting.

      Adventure whale watching
      We had a great trip in the raft/boat even though the sea was really quite rough. Unfortunately no whale could be found but we were educated about whales and their migration and looked after really well by the two crew members. A lovely day on the water!

      Unfortunately there was no wildlife to see! Not the company's fault though. Great team on the boat and dock.

      fantastic
      Brendon and the team were funny , fantastic and kept checking on us to make sure that we were ok .It was a fabulous experience. An absolute must if you are in Sunshine Coast and love a bit of adventure. Will certainly do it again and my only feedback would be that there should be an extra incentive for come back players like discounted tickets to encourage 2nd and 3rd trips back.

      Mudjimba Island Cruise
      Fantastic way to see one of the landmarks of the Sunshine Coast. After seeing Old Woman Island from the coast for so long it was great to see her from all sides. Very informative and friendly team on board. Spotted dolphins and turtles. Great for all ages. Very comfortable and safe.

      Whale of a time
      A well run, fun experience. Staff (skipper, deckie, and even the booking box people) were fun, courteous, and efficient. The boat ride itself was amazing. and it didn't take long to sight a whale. We tracked along next to it and her calf for what might have been an hour (too awed to check my watch) . We were 3 generations and we all had a ball. Other passengers also seemed exhilarated and delighted. Thanks. We highly recommend this operation. .

      Awesome boating adventure for families and whale-lovers!
      We had a brilliant Father's Day with Adventure Rafting. Lots of thrills on the safe, speedy boat and lots of whale sightings, including a gorgeous calf. Brendan our captain was respectful of the whales, full of interesting info, kind with every passenger and put the 'adventure' into our Sunday. Definitely recommend this operator, captain and tour, plus our 10-year-old loved it. She couldn't stop smiling for the whole 90 mins.

    Never miss to book this adventure!. The skipper shared a lot of history around the smaller island and bay where the homes were. Seeing so many dolphins around us was an added bonus.
    The adrenaline of the speed and movement of the raft was awesome 👏 😎

    The whole trip was a great experience, the crew was excellent humorous, and informative with regard to the Whales and other sea life we saw. The information regarding the houses in the Mooloolaba Harbour was great as well. Saw heaps of Whales and listening to them communicating with the Hydrophone was wonderful Highly recommend this activity

    Our Skipper was Brendan and he was awesome, he was friendly, funny and very knowledgeable! He always made sure everyone was comfortable and having fun. One of the biggest parts of any experience is the staff and Brendan sure made our experience unforgettable. Our trip was truely exhilarating, I can't recommend Brendan and Adventure Rafting high enough, if you only do one thing while in Mooloolaba make sure this is it. Thanks Brendan and Adventure Rafting.

    Our family of four adults, 1 teen joined this tour on a spectacular sunny September day. Brendan was our skipper, ably assisted by young Jake. Weather was brilliant, Brendan’s commentary knowledgeable and entertaining, the boat ride was great fun but the whales! So many whales! And they were in the mood to play - we saw so many incredible things, it was a fantastic experience. Highly recommended!

    This tour is great!! The raft went fast and was so much fun!! We went fast out to Mujimba Island, and then slowly around it while our knowledgeable guide told us it’s history. Then he did some figure 8 maneuvers on the way back and we had to hang on tight!! We loved it, and felt super safe the whole time, as we were given large life jackets to wear, and thorough safety instructions. Adventure is a great name for the company, it fits!!

    The guides were relentless in making sure we got to see whales! They scoped out all possible locations until we got to see a beautiful whale and their baby swimming. The boat driver was very skilled and this was my first experience where the water was so choppy but I didn’t get sea sick. Well done! Highly recommend them to others

    Another awesome day on the water watching these majestic gentle giants at play. This is a must do while on the Sunshine Coast!!! We are locals and are repeat customers of Adventure Rafting … they are a great crew and lots of fun! Kudos to Brendon … he is usually our Skipper and has a wicked sense of humour as well as great knowledge of the local area.

    The best whale watching experience we have been on!

    The adventure starts as soon as you leave the wharf with expert commentary of the Mooloola river mansions.
    Once into open water the high speed vessel takes you on a thrilling but safe trip out to the whales.
    The respect (by remaining at the appropriate distance) shown to these majestic creatures by our skipper, resulted in 30 minutes travelling alongside two massive relaxed wild whales, breaching in unison and staying on the surface as if they were looking at us as much as we were marvelling them.

    Thankyou Adventure rafting for creating lifelong memories.

    We will be back!

    Georgia was super friendly with booking and organisation and on the day went out of her way to assist my son with some extra warm protective clothing. Brendan was an awesome host and kept us entertained with humorous narrative. Not to mention his excellent boating skills. I was anxious in the beginning but felt extremely reassured by his professionalism and skill - sooo much fun - even in the super windy choppy weather! Would definitely recommend!!
