What you need to know

Head out on a high speed ocean raft on this Whitsundays tour focused on giving you the maximum amount of time to enjoy spectacular Whitehaven Beach - one of Australia's most beautiful spots. Combining an adrenaline-pumping jet boat cruise with both fun island activities and chance for some quality snorkelling, this tour is an itinerary that provides an ideal balance between time both on and off shore. Departing from Airlie Beach at 9am, you'll be whisked to Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island for a landing at both Hill Inlet and the southern end of the beach, to marvel at its amazing white silica sand. Walk to the Southern Whitehaven lookout with breathtaking views of Pentecost Island and the tropical waters of the Whitsundays, and join the guided walk to the stunning Hill Inlet lookout.

Follow it up with some wonderful snorkelling at nearby Border or Dumbell Island - both renowned for their stunning array of soft and hard corals and varieties of vivid fish - for a marine adventure you aren't soon to forget! Feel free to bring along your own lunch for the trip to save a few dollars, or enjoy a delicious tropical style lunch as an optional upgrade for an extra $17 - the choice is yours. The best of the Whitsundays on both land and water coupled with some high-speed thrills - that's what this tour is all about, so be sure to book online today.
