The 74 Whitsunday Islands is an archipelago of 74 tropical islands. They lie between the Great Barrier Reef and the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia. And they are unquestionably beautiful.
If you are planning an Airlie Beach holiday, then you should consider taking an Ocean Rafting Tour to the Whitsunday Islands. It is both beautiful and thrilling.
You start at Airlie Beach. From there, you board the fastest day boat in the Whitsundays. Yes, these vehicles can reach speeds of up to 35 knots. But even at these high speeds, you’ll be able to appreciate and take in the incredible views of the iconic Hill Inlet.
Another exciting thing about this tour is that it is the only tour in the Whitsundays to have direct access to Hill Inlet beaches at Whitehaven. So you get the great opportunity to bask in the sun on Whitehaven Beach.
If you want even more time at the beach, then chose the South Whitehaven. With this option, you get to enjoy at least two hours of relaxation on the white silica sand. This option also includes a guided walk to the Hill Inlet where you get amazing views of the tropical waters. You can also snorkel for over an hour amidst the fringing reef sand corals and fringing reefs.
If snorkeling is your favorite part of the tour, then consider choosing the North Whitehaven option. Then you get an eco-adventure that is quite popular with avid snorkellers. You actually get to snorkel in two different locations. This option also includes a visit to Hill Inlet beach and a guided National Park walk to the lookout above the silica sand of Whitehaven.
