Ocean Rafting

If you are after a great day out on the beautiful ocean while visiting the beautiful Whitsundays then Ocean Rafting is the way to go. On this Whitsundays day tour you will spend time on the famous Whitehaven Beach, enjoy snorkelling and view a number of amazing islands.

The startling colour scheme conjures up an air of youthful exuberance, appealing to the adventurous and the young at heart. Ocean Rafting has two distinct marine safari tours, the Southern Lights and the Northern Exposure.

With a cruising speed of over 30 knots the vessels can explore vast areas of the Whitsundays in one day - but the design of the vessel reduces fuel usage and impact and therefore is more environmentally friendly and 70% of the boats are under shade providing comfort from the tropical sun.


Northern Exposure: The Northern Exposure adventure is a favourite amongst avid snorkellers because it is the only Whitsunday adventure which includes two different snorkelling destinations. Not only that, but it includes a visit to the stunning beach at Hill Inlet, north end of Whitehaven Beach, and a guided National Park walk to the lookout above the silica sand of Whitehaven. Explore the restricted area of beautiful Hill Inlet at Whitehaven Beach. The Northern Exposure offers more snorkelling time than the Southern Lights tour.

Southern Lights: The Southern Lights tours visits both the northern and southern ends of Whitehaven Beach. Enjoy at least two hours relaxing on the world famous white silica sand and join our guided walk to Hill Inlet Lookout, enjoying breathtaking views of Pentecost Island and the tropical waters of the Whitsundays. Snorkel for over an hour at Border Island, Dumbell Island or one of our "secret" snorkel spots, enjoying the amazing hard and soft corals of the fringing reefs. The Southern Lights offers more beach time than the Northern Exposure tour.
