Noosa Oceanrider is the ORIGINAL ‘Thrill Ride’ in Noosa and has been consistently voted the BEST. The company has evolved over its 18 years in operation to include the crowd-pleasing Dolphin Safari’s and Whale Watching tours.  An Oceanrider tour is a ‘must do’ on the list of ‘things to do in Noosa’

A maximum of 12 passengers seated in six rows of two means that everyone gets a ‘window seat’ and a personalised experience that only a small group allows.

Our RIB boat is the same that the Navy, Coast Guard, and nature tour operators worldwide use which reflects its reliability and high safety standards.  Your Captain Nathan has over 20 years boating and marine experience so you are in good hands.

Located at the convenient Noosa Marina with FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE come and enjoy the tour of your choice and take in the beautiful Noosa coast from a different perspective.

An absolute MUST if you are coming this way!

Wow! What an experience. My legs are still shaking from this crazy thrill ride. Nathan was awesome. Loads of knowledge and incredibly funny. This was way better than we expected. Even saw Pod of Dolphins which was also amazing to see. The airtime we had on some waves sent shockwaves right through you. Would definitely do this again.

These guys are just AWESOME!

These guys are just AWESOME! Loved every second - close to the water, speed thrown in for free and the whales and dolphins were magical! Penelope and Nate and the people to do this with - they care about their customers and their business is beyond compare. We were out for well over 2 hours - Nate's main concern was that we had a great time and got to see as much whale and dolphin magic as possible! The highlight of our holiday - thank you from the very bottom of our hearts!

'5 Stars'

Awesome day on the water. Got to see dolphins, whales and turtles. Nathan, the Captain, is a top bloke - entertaining and knowledgeable. Small group of 12 on the boat, and nice and close to the water. Will go again this season!

Unbelievable experience!

Friendly operator, felt safe at all times (Even when we were flying through the air), saw some whales & dolphins but the best bit was hitting the waves.
