Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Great experience, we had an awesome day. Snorkling was great and views way better than we had just couple day previous near Cairns. Visit to Hill Inlet and following lunch break made the day perfect.
The crew was great, organisation of the trip perfect and riding a 700hp boat in not totally calm conditions actually added to the fun a lot. A definite recommendation...

“Ocean Rafting, Airlie Beach”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

An excellent day overall with a helpful, friendly boat crew. Hill inlet and Whitehaven beach are simply stunning and more than enough lunch provided.
Just make sure you hang on tight though for the occasional 'thrills' of the ride!! But I'm sure you'll have a big smile on your face during the day.
