This half day 'introduction' to WWRafting is good and long enough for most people. There is a day-long tour offered by Viator and I think this would be the next logical step if you enjoyed the half day.
The Raft holds six people and a skipper who works very hard to get the best thrills. We sometimes got stuck on the rocks - it happens.
We start with donning life jackets and I strongly recommend you hire their raft shoes. The raft fills with water to above your ankles so your own trainers get soaked, as does the whole of you. Flip-flops and slip-ons are not good as they are dangerous. Rafts automatically drain themselves so they never sink, in case you were wondering
I wore swimmers and t-shirt some people also put on swiming goggles to avoid water in their eyes.
The eventure starts with a safety briefing and trying out the various instructions: these are important as WWR can be dangerous. I felt safe with our guide who certainly steered clear of problems.
There are some big-ish rapids which throw you about some smaller ones and at one stage we get to go for a swim and flaot down minor rapids - like Baloo the bear in The Jungle Book.
Be prepared to get soaked and to fall in although this is not recommended, it happened to me.
You do need to be flexible and this is not good for people with bad backs or necks. You also need to think 'safety' all the time and be agile enough to move quickly within the Raft.
Professional photographs are worth it the helmets have GoPro attahcments too if you want your own.
Overall a good half-day professional team easy pick-up. There were gaps between the thrills of the rapids so perhaps a half day is indeed ideal.

A great, safe and exciting experience. Our guide Mez did a great job. We were ready for more rapids, but the trip was a great intro for new rafters and an excellent afternoon trip.

My family has just come back from Cairns last weekend. It's a fantastic adventure. Our leader Jesse explains carefully how we cope with the rapids. My family had a very enjoyable and safe journey and will definitely go to the Tully River next time.

Probably one of the best things I did in Australia, ideal if you're a beginner.

It was a really wonderful experience. The price worked out cheaper with Viator.com. We were actually bumped to another provider when we called the actual provider. But, it was no hassles. I will look in Viator for future trips.

This was lots of fun, and the guides were really funny. I really enjoyed the experience, and the Barron River has some good rapids on it. Perfect for beginners.

1st time I river rafted and it was fun. The river was low so the rapids were slow and we got stuck on the rocks alot. I'll try the bigger ones next time for more adventure.

Although it is a short trip, it is full of fun and rapids. I had been on a 8 hours wwr trip in the states before that had the same amount of rapids as this trip did in the 1.5 hours. Guides are all fun and do their best to give you a good trip

Friendly staff, beautiful location in rainforest and not too far a drive from town. I would have liked a bit more rafting and less waiting around for other boats to pass.
