My sister and I did a day trip sea kayaking around Fitroy Island and we absolutely loved it. Our guides, Dom and Jordan, were fantastic. They were so friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend them both. We did a nice hike around this little remote island then went back for lunch and a swim with the turtles. There is a turtle... More

We had a fantastic time doing the 'normal' (not extreme) rafting, it was a really good length of time on the river and we did really varied activities such as swimming, rock jumps, rapids... It was great fun :) lunch was great too. Marty our guide was brilliant and very funny. I also won the raffle in aid of Movember... More

Joined the Tully River rafting experience, had a great fun day out. The guides and staff were very fun people, and we had a lot of chance to get into the cool river both involuntarily or voluntarily, which was good for a hot day. I went during the dry season, so the rapids were not that fast, I certainly would... More

Cairns local. Two girlfriends and I went on the Xtreme rafting tour with Raging Thunder yesterday (26/11/16). Couldn't rate the experience more highly. Whole tour was heaps of fun and really well managed. Dazza our rafting guide was fantastic. Tully River just gorgeous. Can't wait to do it again.

Loved our tour out to the stunning Fitzroy Island. Such great value also, which included snorkelling equipment for the full day, one hour rental for stand up paddle boards and kayaks (each), and also return transfer from Cairns. The main reason I booked with Raging Thunder (apart from the excellent prices) was Rachel who dealt with us in the travel... More

This was a highlight for our family. Just scary enough to make me question my sanity - but seemed safe enough to actually do it. The staff were excellent. I highly recommend this activity.

Beautiful scenery and location is close enough for all to easily get too and enjoy. Highly recommend the waterfall rappelling, jumping and zip lining adventure by Reading Thunder. 5 hours well worth the spend. Great staff, suitable for all adventure levels from beginning like my family to very experienced like myself.

Hands down the best activity I've done on my holiday and the crew the Raging Thunder Adventures are the primary reason, especially Marty who was bloody hilarious 😂 I would recommend this to anyone wanting a good time and willing to get wet!

I went with a work group and it was so much fun. We had a blast even a bit scary at times because the river was up.

We did the Barón River Rafting, It was great, Robb our guide is an amazing Guy. I totally recomend this tour. The problem was thst we went during the dry season and the water level was a little bit low.
