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!

Jules was so helpful in helping us to sort out the right campervan for us. We couldn't have had a more friendly, professional service.

Highly recommend Ratpack. Anna was super friendly and helpful, and made the experience easy from start to finish. She sorted me a van which was ideal for my individual circumstances and we can’t wait for our trip. Thanks!

We had the best experience booking with Ryan. We had a sudden change of plan and needed a campervan booked asap, Ryan walked us through the whole process, talking honestly about every option and cost. Highly recommend.

Absolutely brilliant customer service from both Ryan & Sammy. Their attention to detail, care and patience in getting the right vehicle booked was very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and every question was given a thorough and considered response. I am so excited about the upcoming and long awaited trip with my kids. I am anticipating providing another 5 star review for the overall experience. Job well done RatPackTravel 👌

Excellent communication with Jules and easy booking with good choice and prices. Especially as we are booking over the Christmas period. Totally recommend using them. Thank you.

Was initially a little wary of RatPack, due to the name, but with my dealings with George I am very happy with booking my camper for travel. I found a cheap quote and George went above and beyond to match as closely as possible a better all round deal. Very personable, and no hassles. I would recommend checking out RatPack if you want a stress free, value holiday in Oz, you might get lucky and have George help you out.

Top quality customer service from James and the whole team, from helping us choose what van best suited us, to walking us through all the finer details, it really took the stress off the whole trip so can’t thank them enough! Would highly recommend to anyone who’s looking to do any sort of van rental trip across aus.

Highly recommend for ease of use and great service. Anna was very helpful and put in the hard yards going the extra mile to ensure we were happy and got the rate that we were looking for.

working with Ryan through our booking process has been great, he has been attentive to our "silly requests" and ensured all boxes were ticked and saved us the stress of wondering if we have the right camper! Thanks Ryan! You nailed it! Looking forward to our trip!
