    Hats off to these guys and gals. They know their stuff. Fun flight to start the day off and a great way to see the reef. Absolutely beautiful! Its similar to flying to islands in the Philippines due to its low trajectory but obviously different scenery. I couldn't remember the

    The Fly and Raft Adventure package is the ultimate way to see the Whitsundays best from the air and the sea all in the one day!! Whitehaven Beach is truly spectacular isn’t it!! Having that direct access to Whitehaven Beach is the only way to experience with Ocean Rafting owning 5 out of the 6 permits to access this area. So glad you choose Ocean Rafting as your tour while in the Whitsundays. Be sure to tell all your family friends to come play with us when in the Whitsundays. Thanks Team Ocean Rafting :)

    Ocean Rafting was an excellent host for a day of adventure! We did the fly and raft in a single day, but you have the option to separate them, which may make for a more relaxed day. After an early morning pickup, we were taken straight to the airport for a dawn flight. The views

    Our family of 5 including 3 kids aged between 10 and 3 years all enjoyed an excellent flight and ocean raft trip with this outfit. We decided to split the flight and rafting on separate days, and I would recommend this as doing both on one day would be quite tiring particularly

    This day trip is nothing short of amazing. In fact, as a seasoned world traveller, it’s one of the best I’ve ever done. It was so well organised, with fantastic hosts Braden (our informative skipper) and Danni (a Marine Biologist) on the boat and Eloise our wonderful pilot.
