We did two different activities with this company: the 30-minute hot air balloon ride and Tully River white water rafting. Both were great! I was initially impressed with this company when I emailed to ask some questions, and they ended up offering me a great deal on the hot air balloon ride. It was a Valentine's Day special for couples... More

EPIC afternoon of fun and adventure. The Thunderbolt gives a bit of a thrill ride too and from Fitzroy, and the drinks and nibbles at Foxys were a great way to spend the time on the island with some fantastic tropical views. Can't beat the sunset on the way back though, nothing short of spectacular.

I've been living in Cairns for a year and this is easily the best tour ive done. I took the extreme package and it was such a blast. The crew are all awesome. Our Guide, extreme Maurice, was a cool dude and made sure we had an extreme fun day. The scenery is stunning and the rapids lots of fun.... More

I was so amazed with my first rafting experience (12th January 2017) and beautiful scenery in a paradise called Tully Gorge National Park. We smashed all water rapids on Tully River thanks to our highly professional guide Paul who is really knowledgeable about the river and knows every single rapid in there. All guides there were friendly with great sense... More

We had a blast on the Raging Thunder extreme tour. The group we were paired with were all other couples from other parts of the world and we got along great. I was terrified about whitewater rafting but it was safe, adventurous and all in good fun. Go with the more extreme tour for more opportunities to do fun stuff... More

We'd come over from London with my girlfriend, and we chose the kayaking option. this was an excellent day out, and our guide, called Greg, was absolutely fantastic, a great lad and very knowledgeable. Thoroughly recommend this! James
