Description

Get to know the beautiful natural scenery of the Whitsunday Islands on an excursion that shows you the wild side of Queensland's coast.Your tour visits the sands of Whitehaven Beach, shows you breath-taking views of the Whitsundays at Hill Inlet Lookout, and takes you snorkelling to see the corals of the fringing reefs.

Start your outing at the Abell Point Marina, where you get a safety briefing before you take your place on the semi-rigid inflatable raft and your guide leads you out to sea. Pay a visit to both the northern and southern ends of Whitehaven Beach with a walk to the Hill Inlet Lookout.

With personal snorkelling lessons and the pleasure of a small group, the excursion makes for a lively time as you explore the uninhabited islands. You get plenty of time to go for a swim in the turquoise ocean or just relax on the white silica sands.

Once you're ready for more fun, you can go snorkelling at Border Island, Dumbbell Island, or another prime location among the hard and soft corals of the reef. Special access to protected areas in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park gives you a chance to see some of the coast's most unique and vibrant ecosystems before you return to Abell Point Marina.

Fabulous day out exploring the islands of the Whitsundays. The crew were excellent, informed and super friendly and helpful. Definitely worthwhile taking any one of these beach tours with Ocean Rafting.

This was a great way to experience the Great Barrier Reef and to visit Whitehaven beach.., highly recommend to anyone.

When I went to check in for this activity:"Ocean Rafting & Whitsundays Day Tour:10AM Tour", I found out that was no such thing as a 10AM tour! Confused, I showed the receptionists the confirmation email Expedia sent me, leaving the receptionists rather puzzled as well as they did not recieve an email about my booking or the payment for my booking. Now imagine my dismay as I had to inform the others (including 6 very excited children) that our snorkelling trip was cancelled! In all seriousness, my family and friends are very disappointed as snorkelling was meant to be the "main event" of our holiday.
