Fly Raft Package Southern Lights Tour
From $509pp

Heart Reef, Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet lookout and more – all will be yours to enjoy on this incredible Fly and Raft Southern Lights package with Ocean Rafting.

The best way to experience it all in one day, enjoy a 60 minute scenic flight over some of the most breathtaking views Australia has to offer, before adventuring out on a speedy rafting vessel to some highlight locations such as Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout.

Start the day off right with a magnificent 60-minute scenic flight over the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef. With awesome pilot commentary and a guaranteed window seat, be sure to have your camera ready for the incredible stark white sands of Hill Inlet and Whitehaven, and for the most pictured reef in the world – Heart Reef. If you’re travelling during Whale season, keep your eyes peeled for the migrating Humpback Whales in the waters below, a wonderful experience in itself.

Head back to the mainland and hop on board Ocean Raftings iconic vessel for an exhilarating ride out to the Whitsundays. While the Northern Exposure tour offers more snorkelling locations, this Southern Lights tour lets you enjoy both the Northern and Southern ends of Whitehaven Beach and more downtime at the beach. Enjoy a guided walk to Hill Inlet Lookout for that beautiful shot of the swirling sand formations, spot dozens of sting rays in the crystal clear waters, and enjoy a fresh tropical lunch while relaxing on the pristine silica sand, before heading out to snorkel at a specially selected reef location.

For a full day of epic sights and adventure, this trip certainly won’t let you down.
