See the Whitsundays from above and at high-speed water level with this combo package including a scenic flight and a full day Ocean Rafting tour!
Start your day with a stunning Whitsunday scenic flight over the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef, including famous Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach. Enjoy a bird's eye view of many of the 74 Whitsunday Islands, fly over Whitehaven Beach and picture postcard Hill Inlet before heading out to the Great Barrier Reef and experiencing one of the most photographed reef locations, Heart Reef. The comfortable fixed wing aircraft offers big window viewing, pilot commentary and the best views of the Whitsundays! Then join fellow travellers on a ride on the tropical waters on Ocean Rafting's Southern Lights or Northern Exposure tour.
This award-winning Whitsundays day tour is like doing three tours in one, as you speed around the Whitsundays having fun adventures. You'll start with an exhilarating ride to world famous Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Beach. Then, join a guided walk to the Lookout where you can capture those iconic holiday photos. You'll also get to go snorkelling in beautiful reefs at special snorkel sites at Hook Island and Border Island – these are truly memorable underwater experiences.
Ocean Rafting's fleet of seven vessels are 12 metre semi-rigid inflatables that were built as rescue crafts, meaning they are super-fast, allowing you to see more places in less time. You'll get to visit the "Wild Side" of the Whitsunday Islands, the uninhabited islands with beautiful natural scenery brimming with marine, bird and animal life. Each vessel takes a maximum of 25 – 32 passengers, allowing you to experience tropical paradise away from the crowds.
You can choose from the Northern Exposure and the Southern Lights tour. The significant difference between the two tours is that the Northern Exposure offers more snorkelling time and the Southern Lights offers more beach time. The Northern Exposure tour visits two snorkelling locations around Hook Island, each for approximately 45 minutes. The Southern Lights tour visits just one snorkelling location around either Border Island or Dumbell Island for approximately 1 hour. Both tours operate daily and depart from Airlie Beach.
