What to expect

Spend an unforgettable day out in the open seas with these rafting tours that take you to Whitehaven Beach for a day well spent. Choose between two tours depending on your preferences. If you'd like to spend more time snorkeling and admiring the corals of the Outer Great Barrier Reef, then you should take the Northern Explore Tour. The Northern Explore Tour is easily a favorite amongst avid snorkelers because it is the only Whitsunday adventure that includes two different snorkeling destinations in the itinerary! Discover the underwater beauty of Hook Island including Mantaray Bay, Maureens Cove and other specially selected Whitsundays snorkelling spots, and have an experience you'll never forget! The tour will also take you on a guided National Park walk to Hill Inlet, where you can take in fantastic views of Whitehaven Beach. If you want to spend more time lounging on the beach, choose the Southern Lights Tour, the only tour that visits both ends of the world-famous Whitehaven Beach. At the southern end of the beach, enjoy almost 2 hours of relaxation on the beach, where you can get a tan, take a dip in the ocean, build sandcastles, and more! When you visit the northern end, enjoy a guided bushwalk to the spectacular Hill Inlet Lookout. You'll also get to enjoy some snorkeling time at Border Island, Dumbbell Island or one of the 'secret' snorkeling spots. Whichever you prefer, both tours are exciting and fantastic ways to discover Whitehaven Beach!
