Ocean Rafting, the fastest, wildest day trip in the Whitsundays is hugely popular and offers a choice of two amazing itineraries.

Northern Exposure

Ocean Rafting is the only tour to have direct access to Hill Inlet Beach at Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island, where you can observe the rare estuarine stingrays and ghost crabs in their natural habitat.  Join the guided walk to the stunning views at Hill Inlet Lookout, overlooking the silica sand of Whitehaven Beach, followed by a buffet style lunch at the beach. Enjoy two different Whitsundays snorkelling destinations around Hook Island including Mantaray Bay, Maureen’s Cove and other specially selected Whitsundays snorkelling spots.

Southern Lights

Visit both ends of Whitehaven Beach, enjoying approximately two hours relaxing at the southern end of the 7km stretch of Whitehaven Beach and a guided bushwalk to spectacular Hill Inlet Lookout to view and capture photographs of the stunning swirling silica sands. Snorkel for over an hour at Border Island, Dumbell Island, or one of our “secret” snorkel spots and enjoy the amazing hard and soft corals of the fringing reefs. You can see why we call it 3 days in one!

What’s the difference? 

The main difference between the two tours is that the Northern Exposure has more snorkelling time and the Southern Lights offers more beach time.
