Have you joined the squad? That’s the question we are asking locals with the launch of our new membership program, the Rafting Squad.
Ocean Rafting has always been known for offering the ultimate access to iconic Whitsunday locations and now Whitsunday Shire locals can receive the ultimate access to discounts and promotions.
‘The Rafting Squad’, which launched on 30 April, provides local members access to benefits all year round, including 20% off Ocean Rafting products for the member and three friends, and a free tour for their birthday.
As many locals know, Ocean Rafting operates two exciting day tour options to some of the Whitsunday’s most desirable destinations. The Northern Exposure and Southern Lights tours offer an exhilarating ride to Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet, pristine snorkelling reefs and guided Whitsunday Island National Parks walks. Ocean Rafting has special permits allowing access to Hill Inlet beach itself, which adds to the uniqueness of the tours, being the only operator offering lunch and time to relax on the famous sands of Hill Inlet. Ocean Rafting also operates scenic flights and Fly & Raft packages, offering the best views from above, on and below the water.
As an added benefit for locals travelling north to Tropical North Queensland, the 20% off year-round discount is also redeemable for Ocean Rafting’s sister company, Ocean Safari. Ocean Safari offers an exhilarating half day eco tour to snorkel the pristine untouched Great Barrier Reef off the Daintree Coast. After a fast 25 minute ride, guests are ready to snorkel two fabulous locations and on most days, the rainforest can be seen along the mainland beach whilst snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef alongside sea turtles, which are found in abundance swimming over reefs full of colourful coral. The vessel takes 25 passengers, with small groups allowing guests to experience tropical paradise away from the crowds.
Ocean Rafting owner, Jan Claxton, said “We have been working on the Rafting Squad for some time now, but it seemed like the right time to launch it as we are hopefully returning closer to the “new” normal. The locals have always supported us, as we have them, so we wanted to offer something to shine a little light towards the end of this tunnel. Even though we can’t operate now, the time will come where we can, so locals can join up now and dream about soon getting back out into the fresh air and exploring their beautiful backyard with some amazing deals.”
Rafting Squad discounts are available for residents living in the Whitsunday Shire, with post codes between 4800 and 4805. Members will receive a Rafting Squad membership card once the application is submitted and proof of a local residential address and ID is provided.
