Southern Lights Tour

Fancy experiencing the Whitsundays by boat but with maximum beach time? The southern lights tour is the one! This tour gives you maximum time on the iconic Whitehaven Beach, you’ll visit both ends of the beach and spend 2 hours relaxing at the southern end. Not only will you get to relax, but you’ll also go on a guided bush walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout to get THAT Whitsundays shot. They’ll also give you an hour of snorkel time at another spot, get those Go Pro’s out and look for the turtles! If you’re a beach lover and wanna work on your tan and get the pics then this is for you.

Northern Exposure Tour

If you love the underwater world then jump on this tour as this one offers more snorkel time! You’ll still visit the incredible Whitehaven Beach, walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout to capture the iconic view as well as chill on the southern part of the beach for food! You’ll get to snorkel at two epic snorkel spots, when the Ratpack crew went out we saw Turtles yewwwwwwwww >> the crew are legends and will give you all the instructions you need as well as pointing you in the direction of the best coral and turtle spots! Did you know that the Whitsundays is part of the Great Barrier Reef? Yewwwwwwwww not a bad a life is it?

Ready to cruise the Whitsundays?

We LOVE a bit of the Whitsundays — these two choices from Ocean Rafting are E P I C and are the best way to see this bucket list destination if you are pushed for time or you want to see it in one adrenalin filled day!

  • Opt for the buffet lunch oh my god it’s something else!
  • You can add on a stinger suit if you are there during stinger season.
  • When you call to confirm you can also confirm your pick up point, or make your way to the marina just outside of Airlie Beach!

Ocean rafting is for sure the best way to see the Whitsundays if you are short on time. I went out with these guys and loved it, it was so much fun, got to see plenty of the Whitsundays, the snorkelling was amazing (hello turtles!) and the speed of the boat was a total adrenalin rush…

Don’t forget to enjoy the lunch and drinks on board (extra cost) and get those shots whilst you are on Whitehaven Beach!

Jenna was a huge help getting me a camper for my trip up through the East Coast. Availability was tight and I can’t thank Jenna enough for sorting and at a great price. Definitely worth taking the stress out of searching and using these guys.
