This tour aims to provide some quality snorkelling experiences while also giving guests the chance to experience the incredible Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island! Departing from Airlie Beach at 8.45am, you'll be taken to a pristine inner fringing coral reef where you'll receive some personalised snorkelling instruction before being able to hit the water and witness a wonderful array of stunning soft and hard corals as well as a range of incredibly colourful fish. All snorkelling and safety equipment is provided, so even beginners will be able to make the most of their time in the water - you'll visit two separate stunning snorkel sites in total around lovely Hook Island.

Follow it up with a landing on Whitehaven Beach itself - widely considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - where you'll get to witness its famously white sand firsthand. Join your guides for a walk to the lookout at the top of Hill Inlet for an unmatched panorama of the beach and its surrounds - be sure to bring your camera as it's a scene you'll want to treasure forever! Guests are welcome to bring their own food along for the trip, or for the reasonable extra fee of $20 an optional upgrade to enjoy a delicious tropical style lunch is available.

This is a well-thought out tour that combines plenty of snorkelling time with a relaxing lunch on beautiful Whitehaven beach! Benny, our host & safety officer, was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and sea-life on the reef. We had a few novice snorkelers on the tour, and he was so patient and supportive with them! While I think experienced snorkelers will get a lot out of this experience, it was definitely accessible to new folks, too. And our pilot, Toby, was fantastic—excellent playlist, lots of fun on the water, but I felt completely safe on the boat. His passion and respect for the natural wonder of the reef was evident throughout the tour. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough!!
Great staff really friendly awesome snorkeling locations

Was an absolutely great day out we went on the boat wipe out. The two snorkelling spots we went to were awesome and they were able to take some pictures on their GoPro as well which I'm able to purchase. I haven't been out on another for previously but this tour was definitely better the boat was a lot fast as we got to our destinations are we able to spend a lot more time there. Got some great photos from the inlet and they had some awesome facts as well about the area.

The staff were awesome, it was a great experience despite the weather.

Even though it was absolutely hammering down rain, we still enjoyed our trip out to the reef. We were lucky enough to do some snorkelling with the experienced staff finding a spot that wasn't effected by the fresh water. The staff on board were absolutely amazing and will definitely be back to hopefully do a trip on a sunny day.

The swimming, hiking, and beach was all packed in one day.

Had an amazing time! The tour was fun, adventurous and memorable. I would highly recommend if you are interested in getting the full experience of Whitsundays. It is appropriate for everyone regardless of your swimming abilities and there’s something for everyone!

An absolute must do for everyone. Money worth spending!

Merran and Charlotte were fantastic tour guides. My family had a blast on this tour. Despite being a bit windy, the kids thought that made for the best boat ride. An absolute must do when at the Whitsundays. Lunch was fantastic also. Best day out! Thanks girls.

Fantastic day out! Highly recommended, great day out.

We weren’t lucky with the wind side of life but still ended up a perfect day. Our tour guides were super friendly and fun. Snorkelling in two different areas was amazing! Highly recommend this tour. We got to see lots of marine life and butterfly bay was stunning.

It was a great and fantastic experience. Worth a trip!

It was a fantastic experience from the start of the trip to the end. The crew was very friendly and very supportive of the non-swimmers. They have made sure that they were swimming along with the non-swimmers. They have explained everything and it was a fun day for everyone.

Great adventure, unforgettable experience. Highly recommend this to everyone visiting the Whitsundays.

The Whitehaven Beach Ocean Rafting adventure was a thriller of an experience, not a dull moment. The crewmen were awesome, funny and friendly. The snorkelling was great, the lunch was good. My boys loved the boat ride, high speed, the driver even did some tricks on the way back, was the highlight for my middle boy.

The best experience experience I have had so far in the Whitsundays, so much to see in the water abundant with coral and marine life and hill inlet lookout AMAZING.

We took the northern exposure tour and what an experience we had! Skipper Josh and AJ our tour guide/deckhand was so knowledgeable and confident which put us at ease as it was an exhilarating ride with choppy seas. We snorkelled 2 locations and both were fantastic. Choices are abundant with lots to see. Both boys were always watching and asking if we were having fun or needing assistance with anything. And after snorkelling the packed lunch was amazeballs lots of fresh salad and meats it really was a truly amazing day and I will be back with my whole family very soon.

This high-speed option is a great way to combine sightseeing with a bit of an extra rush, while also saving time by accessing some of the Whitsundays' top highlights far quicker than a regular cruise.
