Rafting Tour to Whitehaven Beach

Snorkel with turtles in the Whitsundays

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.

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!

The crew was very friendly and enthusiastic about the Whitsundays which rubbed off on the passengers. The spots visited were also fantastic. Amazing beach and snorkeling. Loved that the boat could quickly get around the islands.
