Rapid Boarders Cairns Australia’s ONLY white water River Boarding tour

It’s definitely one of the most exciting and adrenaline-pumping adventure tours to do in Cairns, Australia.

Lying face first on a world-class river board, you’ll head through up to grade 3 rapids surrounded by tropical rainforest.

Our location is world class.  The Tully River offers a unique combination of high rainfall and a power dam release every day.  It’s the perfect location for a white water adventure like no other.

Our tour is small, customised and personalised.  We limit numbers to a maximum of 12 participants, so we can keep it interesting, safe, fun and exciting.

Rapid Boarders is an action packed day, starting at 5:30am with a trip south on a fully air-conditioned bus to the Tully River. Watch white water videos on the way; enjoy a light breakfast and the chance to get to know the crew and other guests.

Once at the river we get all customers into safety gear including a life jacket, helmet, wetsuit pants, knee/shin guards and fins. Looking safe and stylish, we put all customers through rapid swimming training, safety guidelines and board maneuvering. Once we’re confident everyone is ready to board, we head down the river from Carson waves and on through the rest of the rapids till we conquer the biggest rapid of the day Zig-Zag. After the white water action is over, it’s time to dry off and head for some much deserved and needed lunch.
