Tully River Rafting Reviews

282 Ruth K - Tripadvisor

XTREME TULLY RAFTING - This was my first white water rafting experience and I have no idea if I will be able to top it! The Tully River is beautiful, and our guide was great. Our raft was a group of 20-somethings, so he really made it a fun trip for us. He purposely tipped our raft (safely), we cliff jumped, and we hit all the rapids at the most exciting areas. You can tell they try to get similar people in boats together. There were other groups that were a lot less daring than us; they really seem to tailor it to what you want to do. It was a great day and I would recommend it to anyone!

We were coming to the end of a 3 week Aussie holiday and decided to grab the adventure spirit and hit the rapids on the Tully River with Raging Thunder. I was a teeny weeny bit nervous about it (website photos didn;t show any any straps keeping people in the boats!EEK!) while my 13 yr old daughter (border age limit for this activity) was totally gung-ho of course! We were picked up promptly in Mission Beach and transferred to the larger wuss group in Tully (after waving off the elite extreme raftin crew!) Having read previous trip advisor reviews about getting chilled on the water and given we were travelling in 'Winter'/June, we had brought along our wetsuits to allow for comfort and sun coverage and this really added to a enjoyable day out as some of the goosebumps on the others were the size of golfballs and allowed us to pop in an out of the water as much as possible. From the start, the guides were absolutely fantastic fun, fully of infectious enthusiasm, all the while maintaining an excellent safety standard. Lunch was great with plenty of food. Average age seems to be twenties/thirties but this is totally do-able for any age. There weren't any other mom and daughter combo's but the lads made a great fuss of my daughter and she was delighted with all the attention. Great banter and rivalry between boats kept the laughs going throughout the most invigorating fun day we had in OZ. Now I just have to layer on the anti-wrinkle cream for all the laughter lines! ps the Raging Thunder photos are very well shot and well worth the extra few bob and as they're now up on my photo wall back here in Ireland, they keep the smiles coming while I look out at the rain!
