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.

Really enjoyable day out with Addy and Brodie aboard Thunderstruck. They made the day fun, made us feel really safe and well looked after and took us to some fab snorkelling spots. They were totally faultless and clearly passionate about what they do. The only issue I had was that no drinks were included, which would have been good given... More

Brodie and Todd were fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and felt well catered for throughout the day. Highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to experience snorkelling and visit Whitehaven and Hill Inlet. Our children are 4 and 7yrs old and this day trip was perfect for them. It truly made our visit to the Whitsundays complete. Thanks Ocean... More

Organisation, professionalism and enthusiasm from all who represented the business were all consistently top knotch! A big shout out to our skipper and boat driver Brodie & Claudia. Both of them were very knowledgable with a hint of wit! For sure would do this again if I had the chance!

Brodie and Todd were awesome, the boat ride and the scenery was world class. Absolute highlight for our entire family - who are still talking about how awesome it was. Whitehaven is something special and the kids went nuts over the turtle sightings...

Brilliant day, Sam our Captain and Mim were not only informative but also fun. Both made sure that everyone was comfortable and having a good time. The snorkeling was amazing even though the water wasn't as clear, due to the rains. Lots of different fish, turtles and the coral. We went to 2 different sites and we were in the... More

Had such a good time on this tour with my family. Great snorkelling, beautiful beaches and good food. The boat ride was so much fun and the tour guides were almost the best part of the day, lovely people that took great care of us; knew a lot about the islands and its history, always made jokes and made sure...

Booked this trip over the internet and wasn't disappointed. The whole day was great from start to finish. 2 snorkels and a great hike through to the Whitehaven view point. Great lunch and perfect setting. Out hosts Shannon and Claudia were also great on the day and got involved with everyone on the boat. Giving us valued information and facts... More
