Ocean Rafting visits the “Wild Side” of the Whitsunday Islands, the uninhabited islands with beautiful natural scenery brimming with marine, bird and animal life. There are two exciting tour options, the Northern Exposure and Southern Lights, and each Ocean Rafting day includes an exhilarating ride to Whitehaven Beach, pristine snorkelling reefs and guided Whitsunday Island National Parks walks. Ocean Rafting is the only tour to have direct access to the stunning and iconic Hill Inlet beach, and special snorkel sites at Hook Island and Border Island ensure a memorable underwater experience.The semi rigid inflatable vessels are super fast allowing guests to experience a fun ride, adventure and education amongst the natural beauty of the Whitsundays. The vessels were originally designed and built as rescue crafts and are driven by 450hp engines. 70% of the vessel is shaded, providing comfort from the tropical sun. Small groups allow guests to experience tropical paradise away from the crowds.Ocean Rafting has been operating since 1997 and is proud to have special permits allowing its vessels to visit protected areas in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The Skipper and Eco Host will ensure guests have a fun filled adventure and personalised service, from the courtesy bus pick up in the morning to snorkel lessons and a guided National Park walk in the Whitsunday Islands.

With 3 friends we went on te Jammin boat, with Tim and Sam. It was an amazing day, got to snorkel with a turtle, and had plenty of time to chill on Whiteheaven Beach, and walk to Inlet Hill Lookout. The view are just breathtaking. The boat ride there and back where really fun, the captain made sure of that!... More

It was fun and worth of the money! We enjoyed very much! Dee and Jess were awesome guides! Time on the snorkeling spots were enough, but i was hoping to someone tell me that i should pee before getting to the boat. Food was okay and there was plenty of it(: Thank you!

The Ocean Rafting staff were excellent. My wife and I had a great day out with them to Whitehaven beach. The rafting boat was fast, fun to be in and made special by the staff who were funny, attentive and caring.

My bf and I travelled with the lovely Toddy and Tim on the Jammin' vessel. The day was perfect and the guys really knew what they were doing. The extra info they gave along the way was genuinely interesting, and they both clearly love their jobs. The scenery is predictably stunning, but actually the best part for us was the... More

My bestie and I had the best day with ocean rafting, the ride out to the island was exhilarating though bumpy. The guides were fun and knowledgeable, giving us a history lesson about the surrounding area and things to do and see, as well as meeting George. Snorkelling was fun and amazing spots. Lunch at Whitehaven beach was also good.... More

We took the northern exposure tour. The two places we snorkeled were fantastic. Lots of beautiful fish and beautiful coral reefs. The visit to whitehaven beach was breathtaking. We had lunch at the beach which was a bonus. I would highly recommend this tour for those that want great snorkeling. It was better than the Reefworld tour by far. Whitehaven... More
