Tully River boarding tours are provided by Rapid Boarders Cairns, Australia’s ONLY white water river boarding tour company. They’re full day tours, guided by professional white water river boarders, with all tuition and equipment provided. Up to 17 rapids and guaranteed white water action.
The mighty Tully River is in the wet tropics world heritage area. It has exceptional natural beauty and includes tropical rainforest, open eucalyptus forest, wetlands and mangroves. The Tully River stretches 130 kilometres from the Cardwell Range to the Coral Sea at Tully Heads. Rapid Boarders tours run up to 7.5kms of its white water section. Full on action with spectacular scenery.
Once you arrive in the Tully River National Park, the Rapid Boarders guides will gear you up with all the equipment; wetsuit pants, knee and shin guards, a life jacket, fins and a helmet. Then it’s up to Cardstone Waves, a grade two rapid, where the experienced guides will teach you the basics in river features, how to swim through a rapid and river boarding skills. Once you are feeling confident, it’s on to begin your Tully River boarding tour.
River boarding is a great white water alternative, it requires no pervious experience and our tours are small, customised and personalised.
