Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Tully River Full-Day White Water Rafting from Cairns including BBQ Lunch. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Had a great day on the Tully, excellent guide in Al, knowledgable and skilful with the raft. Shame the river was a tad lower than normal, still got the thrill and excitement of rafting for the day. The March flies were a pain, but the scenery made up for this. Great day.
If you have never done white water rafting before and are not very confident about trying it, this is for you. If you are an adrenalin seeker but have never done it before I would recommend that you try the 'xtreme' version with the same company. Staff were very friendly however parts of the day seemed to drag as the thrills of the actual water rafting were few and far between.
Picked up right at the hotel and brought to the main office. From there you are given the option to hire a shirt and shoes if you need to.
A safety video is played on the way to there and a short stop is made for breakfast.
This was my first time rafting and I felt very safe with the team work the guides have as the group makes it down the river.
The BBQ has good food seems thrown together but looking at where they are cooking and being next to the river makes it a more enjoyable experience. Your so hungry by that point it doesn't matter at all.
The photos they provide are worth the cost. Check with everyone in the boat before you leave if they are interested in buying photos because then it will be cheaper.
Last thing bring a change of clothes in a bag with you so that you have something to put on after.
The trip was nice! Plus, I had booked a trip for two persons, but my girlfriend got ill. We organized a document from the dock and we got the money back. Thanks, that was really nice!
it was frustrating that the meeting point to meet the tour if a "self drive" participant was incorrect.
the tour operators informed us that this meeting point was changed over 6 months ago.
we were fortunate not to have missed the tour.
Guides suck but they are funny. Shoddy rafts that taco. Not the safest. Food is horrific. They have a monopoly on rafting and they send down way too mnay rafts. You sit around a lot not moving.
Fun tour for first-time rafters. However, Barron River is not very rapid or intense for those who want more excitement. There are long stretches of calm water with short rapids.
We rafted on the Barron River which was we were told at a perfect level. I thought it would be more exciting than it was but it was a good experience.
it was terrible. .. bbq it wasn't a bbq. .. no drinks.. it wasn't a good condition for eating. .. and the ride. .. to many stops.. it was like a Venice ride. ... boring. ..
