Had an absolute ball rafting with Foaming Fury in Cairns. Our guide Jason was amazing and kept us laughing the whole time. They picked us up at the exact time and the whole adventure was run seamlessly. Will definitely recommend them to anyone visiting Cairns!!!

The white water rafting afternoon trip was a great trip for me. It was well organised with clear instructions provided before hand, during and after. Our guide was fantastic and the river water levels were excellent despite the dry season. Would definitely do it again.

All the guys made for a great day, especially Karl! Great rafting through beautiful scenery & scary enough to get the heart racing. Don’t come to Cairns without taking a trip with Foaming Rapids
