Each Ocean Rafting day includes an exhilarating ride to world famous Whitehaven Beach, pristine snorkelling reefs and guided Whitsunday Island National Parks walks. Our semi rigid inflatable vessels are super fast allowing you to experience a fun ride, adventure and education among the natural beauty of the Whitsunday islands.
Ocean Rafting’s Whitehaven Beach tours visit the “Wild Side” of the Whitsunday Islands, the uninhabited islands with beautiful natural scenery brimming with marine, bird and animal life. Ocean Rafting’s fleet of four vessels are 11 metre semi-rigid inflatables, originally designed and built as rescue crafts and are driven by 500hp engines.
Your Skipper and Eco Host will ensure you have a fun filled adventure and personalised service on our Whitehaven Beach tours, from the courtesy bus pick up in the morning to snorkel lessons and a guided National Park walk in the Whitsunday Islands.
NORTHERN EXPOSURE – More snorkel time
We are the only one to have direct access to the stunning and iconic Hill Inlet beach on our Whitehaven Beach tours and special snorkel sites at Hook Island and Border Island ensure a memorable underwater experience.
Departs daily at 8.45am and returns at 3.30pm. Courtesy coach pick ups from mainland accommodation are available between 7.45am-8.30am and if making your own way, please check in at 8.00am.
SOUTHERN LIGHTS – More beach time
Relax on Whitehaven Beach for over two hours and enjoy a short walk to the views of Pentecost Island. Join our guided walk to the breathtaking Hill Inlet Lookout. Snorkel for up to an hour at Border Island or Dumbell Island.
Departs daily at 10.00am and returns at 4.30pm. Courtesy coach pick ups from mainland accommodation are available between 8.45am-9.30am and if making your own way, please check in at 9.00am.
The main difference between the two tours is that the Southern Lights has more beach time and the Northern Exposure offers more snorkelling time. We offer a Double Deal for both cruises so you can experience more adventure for less!
