Whitehaven Beach ‘Ocean Rafting’ Southern Lights Tour
After breakfast on the island, mid-morning, we’re off to Whitehaven Beach!
Ride, beach, snorkel and bushwalk…all in one day! Ocean Rafting’s Southern Lights tour offers the perfect Whitehaven Beach tour, visiting both ends of the world famous beach and enjoying approximately two hours relaxing at the southern end of the 7km stretch of Whitehaven Beach.
At the northern end of Whitehaven Beach, enjoy a guided bushwalk to spectacular Hill Inlet Lookout to view and capture photographs of the stunning swirling silica sands and aqua water. Ocean Rafting is the only tour to have direct access to all areas of the stunning and iconic Hill Inlet beach to ensure you enjoy the most memorable experience of this special place. Snorkel for over an hour at Border Island, Dumbell Island, or one of our “secret” snorkel spots and enjoy the amazing hard and soft corals of the fringing reefs, as well as a huge range of marine life including colourful fish, turtles, clams and so much more, all of which call the inner coral reefs home.
Lunch day is a tropical buffet with a selection of rolls and wraps, a variety of salads, fresh fruits, and lamingtons with vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options included.
Ocean Rafting has the fastest day boats in the Whitsundays, meaning it is not only an adventurous ride, but distances are covered in a shorter time, leaving more time for activities. The semi rigid inflatable vessels are super fast – it’s a fun ride, adventure and education amongst the natural beauty of the Whitsundays.
Around 4pm we are back at Daydream Island, time to refresh and dinner tonight is at our resort’s buffet restaurant, Graze.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Enjoy breakfast at Graze. Your group coordinator will set a morning meet up for some watersports – take out double kayaks or give the paddleboards a go. And for the more adventurous, the option to organise a guided jet ski island tour.
You’ve got the day of resort relaxing ahead. Enjoy a spa treatment (own expense) or kick back poolside. There’s a trivia or bingo meetup this afternoon…the perfect end to a day on the island.
As sunset approaches, we slip down to the other side of the island, to Lover’s Cove – the island’s cool little popup afternoon bar for sunset on the deck.
Tonight, dinner at Inkstone Restaurant.
