We went out ocean rafting after a lot of rain, high tides and wind so we were warned it would be rough. It was but such great fun. Whitehaven Beach and the guided walks lovely too. Unfortunately not clear enough to snorkel but still a fab tour

The tour was perfectly organised, good time keeping, the captain Josh and the other crew member nice British girl whose name I didn't catch were knowledgeable, attentive to everyone and fun people who apparently love their job. I went on the Southern tour, just one snorkelling spot, snorkelling was not impressive - due to the recent rain the water was not really transparent but nothing could be done about it The rest was great - the walk to the lookout, Whitehaven beach we spent around an hour and a half which for me was not enough but still gives you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting, the ride! The sea was rough, the raft was jumping up and down, lots of screaming and laughing maybe not good for people who are afraid or get sick in the sea but though I am not the bravest, I really enjoyed it. Overall, great fun and many new experiences, great way to see Whitehaven beach. Recommended!

The ride in the raft is just exciting! Then discovering Whitehaven Beach is amazing! The Beach by itself is really great, white powder sand and turquoise waters!

A great day tour to see the Whitsunday Islands and Whitehaven beach! The raft was great fun but goes pretty fast and can get bumpy so it's not really for the faint hearted. Tim and Sarah were our tour guides and made sure everyone had a good time. I went on the Southern tour so did a bit of snorkeling and spent more time on the beach. Neither is to be missed! The beach is stunning and you will see some great views! The lunch is optional but I do recommend it as there was quite a good selection of tasty dishes.
