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.

Fantastic day. Scenery was awesome. Snorkelling coral wasn't very colourful but still enjoyed it and the boat was the smoothest ride we had ever been on. Staff were extremely nice and fun. Would definitely do it again. Thanks Scott and rosemary

You may expect a great tour with a super nice crew, fantastic beaches as well as snorkeling, and finally a wonderful meal (you won't starve!) The rip boat is awesome and the captain entertains you with some 'curvy' onboard action, which made everyone including the...More

Tom and Claudia were awesome hosts! They created a fun day for all and went above and beyond to accomodate everyone. Visiting Whitehaven is a must and I can't rave more above the views we saw on the day!
