What Our Guests Are Saying

An amazing experience, so much fun!

Nathan picked us up and took us out this morning for the Thrill Ride which totally lived up to expectations! We hit some amazing waves, did turns, spins etc. We swapped places during the ride so everyone got to have a turn-up front and stopped for photo opportunities. I particularly liked the small lightweight life jackets we had to wear as opposed to the bulky big yellow ones the other tours were wearing. If you get the chance do this tour, you won't regret it! It is soooo much fun, I still haven't stopped smiling.

Amazing! Today we have experienced the ride of our lives.

Today we have experienced the ride of our lives. Speed, jumping over the waves, wind and splashes onto our smiling faces. Nathan, you are an incredible person, all the thrill and we felt very safe, your ability to entertain people are exceptional. We are home, tired from all the excitement but it was all worth it. I highly recommended if you are in Noosa.

Great experience Birthday Thrills

My husband organised a surprise experience for my birthday that completely lived up to its promise. Nathan showed his skill in handling and manoeuvring the boat through the waves so that we felt safe but exhilarated. We were fortunate to see lots of dolphins and Nathan’s commentary of the beaches and caves was great. Highly recommend this one.

Amazing experience with Nathan, Penny & Sigi

Thank you so much, Nathan, Penny & Sigi for a fantastic “Dolphin Safari” yesterday. It was amazing to get so close to the Dolphins in their natural habitat and enjoy the beautiful scenery from the river & sea. I highly recommend this amazing experience 😍🐬

Birthday to remember

Nathan from Oceanrider is a skilled and entertaining boat captain who takes the time to make sure all passengers are comfortable and enjoying themselves, from the very young to the very old. Nathan gave us a full rundown on what to expect and was able to help us find a pod of dolphins to top off an enjoyable boat ride out through the sand bar and through the ocean waves. When he saw that everyone was comfortable Nathan gave us a quick peek into what the boat was capable of doing through the waves. A great morning's adventure.
