the boys were awesome on the day, felt really comfortable the whole time and made the day super fun. The snorkeling spots were beautiful and lunch was perfect! would definitely do it again.
Great trip - fun guides, good music, amazing scenery and experiences.
Wow. We absolutely enjoyed our rafting tour. The guides were fantastic friendly people. The information about everything was great. The food was absolutely fantastic. Was very well equipped with safety regulations. We had a great day.
A fun full day. Great hosts who looked after you well and served a plentiful lunch both hot and cold.
A well timed day from hotel pick up a fantastic boat ride , snorkel and mind blowing view from the lookout and then returned
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.
Despite the weather being less than ideal, the team was great and very accomodating. They warned everyone before the tour that the waves would be rough, so you had the choice to go on another day. The guides were very knowledgeable and we spotted many whales on our trip. Highly recommend this tour. We did the Northern Exposure.
An outstanding day which had everything - Whitehaven Beach and the hill lookout which was spectacular, snorkelling, whale watching, and some thrills on the ride back to Airlie Beach. The best way to travel to Whitehaven Beach with great crew - a most enjoyable day. No need for shoes for the hill lookout walk, thongs are fine and take a windcheater or jacket as it can get cool while on the water. There are waterproof tubs on the 'raft' to keep clothes and belongings dry.
Great trip to fantastic snorkeling spots and breathtaking Whitehaven Beach views. Only tour that takes you onto the beach with its unique white sands.
It was a fantastic trip and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Absolutely fantastic tour and amazing team at ocean rafting. Emma was very bubbly and was very knowledgeable about the Whitsunday islands and seemed interested in talking with you. The tour had a very personal feel to it as it was not over crowded and everyone was looked after well. The snorkling experiences were amazing - 45 minutes each. The first session we saw coral reef and even lucky enough to see turtles and on the second snorkling spot we saw some large amazing fish. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Airlie beach.
I loved the whole day and I would definitely do the same tour again.
This was a great tour and enjoyed the day. The boat was a little crowded, but to be expected as it was peak season. There are no issues if you sit on the side of the raft during the ride out and back. Whitehaven Beach is a must see!!
Fantastic. We had such fun. Bit worried we might have been too old for the crowd but it was fine. We were well looked after by Michael and Carl. The boat ride was awesome. Lovely walk, amazing views and Whitehaven took our breath away. Good lunch too. One of the best experiences we have had.
This tour uses the phrase 'The ride of your life'....and they aren't wrong. It was a terrific trip and our hosts, Ross and Timmy were just brilliant. They are friendly, informative and engaging. The snorkeling around the Whitsunday Island was amazing. The walk around Whitehaven Beach was brilliant and the walk up to the lookout is well worth it. The buffet lunch was terrific and bonus is they don't even make you do the dishes!! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!!
utstanding trip to Whitehaven Beach! Thrill seeking raft ride, snorkelling with turtles, swimming with stingrays and the spectacular Whitehaven Beach! I chose the Southern tour which had more beach time, but we still got an hour snorkelling at a great spot with beautiful coral and fish. We then headed to Whitehaven Beach and a bush walk to the Hill Inlet lookout to see the incredible swirling tide patterns which is just breathtaking. Lunch on the beach and then an hour of free time to spend swimming in the crystal blue sea and walking on the pure white sands. There was a northerly wind on the day of our trip which meant we couldn't go to the southern side of the beach, which is the most popular part for tourists, but the north side is so much better and I'm glad we got to stay there. Also, Ocean Rafting is the only tour company with permit rights to stay on the beach at Hill Inlet, so on the way home we saw all the other day trips moored at a different island because they were unable to stop at Whitehaven Beach, so I was very glad I chose my tour with Ocean Rafting otherwise I would have missed out completely - just one of the reasons they are the number one tour operator in the Whitsundays! Others include well organised trips, great tour guides, we had Jason and Ross, who were very knowledgeable and informative, friendly and helpful and very funny, making jokes on the trip to keep us entertained and make the day enjoyable for everyone. An awesome day and would definitely recommend this tour over other sailing tours which take twice as long to get to the island and so reduce the amount of time to enjoy the amazing views, and who doesn't like to add a bit of adventure to the day with some ocean rafting!
This Ocean Rafting tour to Whitehaven Beach was amazing. The most amazing thing of a lot of amazing things we did on our 17-day trip to Australia. So fun. The boat ride was great, the beaches were great, the snorkeling was unreal. Our instructors were great too. This was awesome. Highly recommended.
Great trip. Fast, fun but safe journey to fantastic lookout to take photos of Whitehaven beach. Then on to great snorkeling place followed by plenty of beach time and optional good lunch.
