Based in the beautiful Mission Beach, we see this location as an ideal base for accessing North Queensland’s No. 1 adventure playground. It’s all in your backyard, White Water rivers, Rainforest and the Reef and Islands.

The crew is fantastic, highly trained and always entertaining; our core crew members have over 80 years of combined outdoor adventure industry experience so you know you’re in good hands.

Take a paddle on the Wildside in your own Sports Raft! Your Adventure starts with safety and paddle training, you will realise that your inner Wildside is being released with your first “Wahoo” as you plunge, splash, spin, bounce and jump along nature’s water paths through stunning pristine rainforest on the Tully River.

The Full Day white water adventure start with pickups from your accommodation, whereupon we head to the Tully Gorge National Park and treat you to Morning Tea before gearing you up in your Personal Flotation Device, helmet, paddle and 2 person inflatable Sports Raft.

From there, we teach you paddling techniques, River signals and safety and a basic understanding of water hydrology. Once we’re all feeling confident, we’re off! The first rapid is a practice rapid, followed closely by lookout rapid. We continue on for 6km where we will load back into the bus and head up the river for lunch.

The second run is where things get wild, as now you are prepared and ready. You can surf rapids, flip and really get your adrenaline rushing. Another 6km of rapids and we load up the bus again, this time heading back into Mission Beach.

This adventure is also available for a Half Day Tour which is self drive. This option is perfect for if you’re short on time but still want to have a taste of white water adventure. You will meet the crew at the Recreational Camp Ground up the Tully Valley for a 9:30am morning session or a 12 noon afternoon session.

Bookings are essential to secure your spot, this is an adventure you won’t forget!

Additionally, we also provide a Coachable Creek Tour depending on the water levels to those who have previously paddled with us. This tributary is 12km long, very tight fast and exciting; this section has only been paddled by a rare few and is absolutely pristine.
