Overview

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.

We do aim to showcase as much of the "must see" Whitsundays in one day and so pleased to hear you enjoyed "the ride"! A big thanks from Danni and Sam and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in the Whitsundays! :-)

One of the best ways and most fun to experience the Whitsundays. From the moment you're on the the boat until you're back in dock you're having fun! Lunch and guides were great

Great fun made better with great hosts! Northern trip was great for the snorkel fans and private access to part of whitehaven beach away from hundreds of others was awesome.

A day on the water is only as good as your hosts...and Sam and Krystal were exceptional. Friendly, funny, knowledgeable - and they laughed at my Dad jokes! It was a good adrenalin fix while feeling SAFE at all times.
