What's Included?

  • Full day river boarding
  • All equipment supplied
  • Safety briefing
  • Breakfast and lunch included

Lying face first on a world-class river board, you’ll head through up to grade 3 rapids surrounded by tropical rainforest in this world-class location. The Tully River offers a unique combination of high rainfall and a power dam release every day. It’s the perfect location for a white water adventure like no other.

The tour is small, customised and personalised. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 12 participants, so it's kept interesting, safe, fun and exciting. An action packed day, starting at 5:30am with a trip south on a fully air-conditioned bus to the Tully River. Watch white water videos on the way; enjoy a light breakfast and the chance to get to know the crew and other guests.

Once at the river all participants get into safety gear including a life jacket, helmet, wetsuit pants, knee/shin guards and fins. Looking safe and stylish, everyone is put through rapid swimming training, safety guidelines and board maneuvering. Once the experience provider is confident everyone is ready to board, you head down the river from Carson waves and on through the rest of the rapids till you conquer the biggest rapid of the day Zig-Zag. After the white water action is over, it’s time to dry off and head in for some much deserved and needed lunch.
