Explore The Best Bits Of The Whitsundays

snorkelling the whitsundays

Visit three of the most beautiful locations in the Whitsunday Islands whilst zipping around in an ocean raft!

The Whitsunday Islands are made up of 74 unique islands that sit just off the central coast of Queensland. The island’s sandy fringes disappear into stunning shades of indigo and turquoise and make for some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The islands are also home to native wildlife that live amongst the lush greenery on the islands.

Ultimate Whitsunday Day Trip

The conditions are perfect for water sports like scuba diving and sailing and are ideal for an ocean rafting adventure. Of all the beautiful bays and hidden coves the most famous is Whitehaven Beach – a sandy beach that stretches a mammoth 7km.

Cut through the waters at super-fast speeds

Hop on board an ocean raft and enjoy an exhilarating ride to this iconic beach, whilst marvelling at the pristine snorkelling reefs and the island’s national parks. The inflatable vessels are expertly designed to be streamlined so they can cut through the waters at super-fast speeds, adding to the thrill of the tour. Aside from the ride, there is also the chance for snorkelling at Hook Island and Border Island – locations known as ideal diving spots for their pristine, calm waters. Ocean Rafting also takes you to the off the beaten track parts of the Whitsunday Islands, so you can observe first-hand the island’s only inhabitants – the tropical birds, rare animals and its unique marine life.

Choose your Whitsunday tour

The option is between the two tours on offer, the Northern Exposure and the Southern Lights tour.

The main difference between the two tours is that the Northern Exposure tour allows you to enjoy more time snorkelling, whilst the Southern Lights offers more time for lazily soaking up the sun on the beautiful beaches. Daily tours depart from Apell Point Marina North in Airlie Beach and both Whitehaven Beach tours are also ideal for private charters.
