Highlights

  • Don’t be surprised if your legs turn into jelly when you finish the climb to the top but it’s worth it. Then the rapid swimming; you’re doing the extreme version for a reason!
  • Enjoy the adrenaline rush of Raft Surfing but don’t put sunscreen on the backs of your knees. This will make for a slippery combination against the rubber of the raft.

Perfect Selfie

  • The good news is there is a professional photographer with zoom lenses that will be there at many stages of your day to capture action shots.

Itinerary

Take Me to the River

Whether coming from the Northern Beaches of Cairns or city accommodation, you will be taken to the meeting point at the R-T office via complimentary bus transfer. After quickly settling any paper work or payments, you’ll be on your way. It’s a smooth process as the aim of the day is to maximise your thrill-seeking on the river.  

Your host on the bus – one of the river guides who will spend the day with the group – will take to the mike with a lot of energy. No doubt intended to jolt you out of any early-morning fogginess, you’ll be given an overview of the day ahead before being invited to sit back and relax for the remainder of the ride.
