Working at Base Airlie Beach backpackers is FUN, but getting to sample the Ocean Rafting Tour is AWESOME!
The weather reports were saying that it was going to be a rough day out on the water, but I was determined to go Ocean Rafting regardless.
There were 25 people on our boat, making it a nice smallish group. It was an awesome trip which included a visit to Whitehaven Beach, Snorkelling reefs and a guided Whitsundays National park walk.
Arriving at Whitehaven we walked up to the lookout and took some awesome pictures. After a short scenic walk from the lookout to the actual beach, we were served an awesome lunch of cold meats and salads.
I went for a walk along the shore to look for fish and found heaps of baby lemon sharks and stingrays. After we had eaten, rested and explored we loaded up again and went to a snorkelling spot where there was a turtle, Maori rass and GT’s. So close you could touch them (if you were allowed).
On the way home we made a quick stop at the beach the filmed the Australian tourism plug “Where the bloody hell are you”.
All in all we had an amazing day, full of excitement!
