Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet

Visit three top destinations whilst having the ride of your life! Each Ocean Rafting day includes an exhilarating ride to world famous Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet Beach and Lookout, pristine snorkelling reefs and guided Whitsunday Island National Parks walks, all in one day! Our semi rigid inflatable vessels are super fast allowing you to experience a fun ride, adventure and education amongst the natural beauty of the Whitsundays.

Ocean Rafting’s Whitehaven Beach tours visit the “Wild Side” of the Whitsunday Islands, the uninhabited islands with beautiful natural scenery brimming with marine, bird and animal life. We are the only tour operator to have direct access to the stunning and iconic Hill Inlet beach on our Whitehaven Beach tours and special snorkel sites at Hook Island and Border Island ensure a memorable underwater experience.

Two tours to choose from!

Ocean Rafting offers two different Whitehaven Beach tours to choose from, the Northern Exposure and the Southern Lights tour. The significant difference between the two tours is that the Northern Exposure offers more snorkelling time and the Southern Lights offers more beach time. Daily tours depart from Coral Sea Marina North (next to Sorrento Restaurant & Bar) in Airlie Beach and both Whitehaven Beach tours are also ideal for private charters.

The ride of your life!

Ocean Rafting’s fleet of eight vessels are 12 metre semi-rigid inflatables, originally designed and built as rescue crafts and are driven by 700hp engines. Each vessel takes a maximum of 25 – 32 passengers on our Whitehaven Beach tours, with small groups allowing you to experience tropical paradise away from the crowds.
