6Hr Ocean Rafting Whitehaven Northern Exposure Cruise

Ocean Rafting’s Northern Exposure tour offers three exhilarating experiences around the uninhabited islands of the Whitsundays in just one day. 

Perfect for small groups, this tour includes a visit to the Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet, guided walks along the Whitsunday Island National Parks and snorkelling. You’ll traverse the islands on a semi-rigid inflatable boat with a 500 hp engine for a high-speed ride amongst the Whitsundays.

With more attention to the snorkelling side, this tour is only one of the few in Whitsundays which offers two snorkelling destinations. Your knowledgeable guides will instruct you about the basics of snorkelling before entering the pristine waters around Hook Island. Manta Ray Bay, Maureen's Cove and other specially selected spots will be your diving sites for the day.

Discover a whole new world of underwater life as you come face to face with incredible coral gardens of the fringing reefs, a stunning variety of turtles, clams, and fish life, that call the reef home.

After snorkelling, you can enjoy a fast-paced ride to the northern end of the Whitehaven Beach and the Hill Inlet Beach. This is the only tour with direct access to the Hill Inlet beaches, where you can spend time exploring, swimming in the crystal clear waters, or simply relaxing on the soft silicon sands. 

You can also embark on a national park walk with your guides, who will regale you with their informative reef and island talks. The tour also includes a tropical lunch pack!

A ride to one of Australia’s best beaches, snorkelling at pristine coral reefs, and a HIll Inlet visit, all call for a very special adventure. Book your seats today!
