This tour will closely acquaint you with the "Wild Side" of the uninhabited Whitsunday Islands that teem with marine, bird, and animal life. Get a bird's eye view of the stunning islands, the Great Barrier Reef, the famous Heart Reef, and Whitehaven Beach on an hour-long scenic flight.

Then, sweep through the tropical waters on Ocean Rafting's Northern Exposure or Southern Lights tour. Each adventure will afford an exciting ride to the stunning Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet, guided Whitsunday Island National Parks walks, and exploration of top snorkeling spots at Hook Island and Border Island. With at most 32 guests, you can enjoy personal snorkeling lessons. You can enjoy buffet-style lunch at the beach, with plenty of time for a dip in the turquoise waters or simply to lounge lazily on the silica white sand.
