Although a team of relatively small people, I think Tristan was proud of how well we worked those rapids! Great team work, great company, great fun. But the scenery stole the show. Forget about tours of this valley, there’s nothing like seeing the magic whilst meandering down these rapids. Fantastic experience on a honeymoon. Tristan our boat leader was awesome! Talked about some Old school movies on our smooth paddle down in the last stretch. The whole thing is great fun and if you have half a day in cairns to spare then I strongly recommend it (cairns activities are every diverse!). Big love from UK J & Mrs

We did the full day rapid boarding on the Tully River. This is a really great day out run by a lovely team. I would highly recommend doing this while in Cairns even if it means extending your stay by an extra day! Everything was explained fully, the team were very professional ensuring we were safe at all times The best part was that it was so much fun! Great to do something different, especially if you have tried rafting previously Lunch provided was good also.

Massive thanks to the team who really killed it with the tour of the river. The team was super friendly, and were making us laugh the whole time. Everything was super safe and felt like I was never in danger. Thank you.

If you've ever been white-water rafting, this is more fun and adrenaline pumping as you're the one in control - navigating the board and kicking your own fins. Thanks to Leigh, Rohan, and Jada-Lee!

5 star! Very friendly coaches with detailed explanation on all the stuff you need to know. Very well taken cared of throughout the whole journey. Had a wonderful afternoon. The river is just 30 mins away from town which is very convenient. Not too physically demanding, just that you have to be familiar and comfortable with water. My gf enjoyed it a lot too. Well protected with gears. Nice way to explore the river and the national park.
