Why Travellers Choose This Tour

The deluxe raft travels faster than the larger boats, meaning you get to your destination quicker.
Choose from two tour options that both include an informative guide who shares commentary about the ecology and wildlife of the reef and islands. Both tours start with pickup from your Airlie Beach hotel and transfer to the marina for check-in. Your guide welcomes you aboard the boat and provides a full safety briefing before departing for Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsunday Islands.

Visit stunning Whitehaven Beach and great snorkeling spots at nearby islands. Beginning and expert snorkelers alike can observe colorful marine life along coral reefs, with provided equipment and personal instruction from your guide.

Indulge in a tasty buffet lunch on the beach (own expense), plus afternoon tea with cake. Ride in a sturdy raft equipped with a sunshade that covers much of the vessel, protecting you from the tropical sun. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.


Northern Exposure
A favorite among avid snorkelers, this tour takes you to two different destinations in the Whitsundays to swim around magnificent coral reefs. You may snorkel at Border Island, Dumbell Island, or another snorkel spot known only by local insiders. Your visit includes ample time on a stunning part of Whitehaven Beach called Hill Inlet, plus a guided walk in the national park to a lookout point.

Southern Lights
Beach lovers should opt for this tour to spend more time on both the northern and southern ends of Whitehaven Beach. Dig your toes into Whitehaven Beach’s famous white sand, and stroll to the Hill Inlet lookout with your guide for breathtaking views of Pentecost Island. For more scenery, visit the Southern Whitehaven lookout. You'll also have more than an hour to watch the colorful fish and coral reefs as you kick around secluded snorkel spots in your provided gear.

We went out ocean rafting after a lot of rain, high tides and wind so we were warned it would be rough. It was but such great fun. Whitehaven Beach and the guided walks lovely too. Unfortunately not clear enough to snorkel but still a fab tour

Awesome day!

The tour was perfectly organised, good time keeping, the captain Josh and the other crew member nice British girl whose name I didn't catch were knowledgeable, attentive to everyone and fun people who apparently love their job. I went on the Southern tour, just one snorkelling spot, snorkelling was not impressive - due to the recent rain the water was not really transparent but nothing could be done about it The rest was great - the walk to the lookout, Whitehaven beach we spent around an hour and a half which for me was not enough but still gives you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting, the ride! The sea was rough, the raft was jumping up and down, lots of screaming and laughing maybe not good for people who are afraid or get sick in the sea but though I am not the bravest, I really enjoyed it. Overall, great fun and many new experiences, great way to see Whitehaven beach. Recommended!

The ride in the raft is just exciting! Then discovering Whitehaven Beach is amazing! The Beach by itself is really great, white powder sand and turquoise waters!

Amazing day! Our tour guides Rossco and Danni were great fun and extremely knowledgeable. We had a fab time snorkelling and even got to see some turtles! We were also lucky enough to have whales and dolphins come up to the boat! Whitehaven beach was incredible and we had plenty time to enjoy.

A great day tour to see the Whitsunday Islands and Whitehaven beach! The raft was great fun but goes pretty fast and can get bumpy so it's not really for the faint hearted. Tim and Sarah were our tour guides and made sure everyone had a good time. I went on the Southern tour so did a bit of snorkeling and spent more time on the beach. Neither is to be missed! The beach is stunning and you will see some great views! The lunch is optional but I do recommend it as there was quite a good selection of tasty dishes.

We booked the northern exposure tour. The snorkeling at two sites was really great. Beautiful color for fish and coral, even saw a small shark harmless and a sea turtle. Whitehaven beach is spectacular! This tour allowed plenty of time at the beach. Once you get to whitsunday island, there is a public toilet along the bush walk trail. There is also a toilet on the raft. The staff were great. We enjoyed this snorkeling trip more that Reefworld. I would highly recommend this tour for better snorkeling. Lunch is not included, and can be purchased for reasonable price. I would suggest bringing water and some snacks. I would do this trip again!
