Fun rides can be experienced thanks to the semi-flexible inflatable vessels that are really fast!
Combining education and adventure:
Education and adventure are also part of the day, as you will have the chance to bask in the islands' natural beauty. Operations for Ocean Rafting have been on-going since 1997. The company also possesses special permits that allow them to take you to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park's protected areas. They also have access to Border Island and Hook Island's exceptional snorkel sites, and the iconic and stunning Hill Inlet beach - something that no other tour operator has, to ensure your underwater experience will remain long in your memory. The Whitsundays' 'Wild Side' and the uninhabited islands boast amazing natural scenery and are brimming with birds, animals and marine life, which are all covered by Ocean Rafting.
The vessels and service:
The semi-rigid inflatable vessels are 11 metres long, and all four of them were originally built with a design that was intended on using them as crafts for rescue operations. 500hp engines run these vessels and 28 passengers can be onboard at a time. You can experience the tropical paradise with small groups, away from the masses. 70 per cent of the craft is covered with shade, providing protection and comfort from the sun. Your Eco Host and Skipper will ensure an exciting adventure with personalised service that starts with the bus pick up at the beginning of the day to guided walks through the National Park and snorkel lessons in the ocean.
The choice is all yours:
Ocean Rafting offers two distinct tours for vacationers to select from - the Southern Lights tour and the Northern Exposure. The major difference between the Northern Exposure and the Southern Lights tour is that the former offers a lot of snorkelling time while the latter offers more time on the beach. Airlie Beach's Coral Sea Resort jetty offers daily tours, and both these tours are also perfect for private charters.
Ocean Rafting is proud to have won a host of awards that include the Winner of the 2011 Whitsunday Adventure Tourism, Finalist of the 2011 Queensland Adventure Tourism, Finalist of the 2011 Queensland Tour and/or Transport Operator, Winner of the 2008 Whitsunday Adventure Tourism, and Finalist of the 2007 Queensland Adventure Tourism awards. The service is also inducted in the Hall of Fame for Whitsunday Adventure Tourism.
