What Our Guests Are Saying

Great day out

This is the 2nd time we have done a trip with Noosa Oceanrider and both times now we have had a great time. Nathan is a great host, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend doing a trip with them.

A great experience

Excellent high speed adventure ride, Nathan was an awesome skipper who made sure everyone enjoyed the ride. My young sons are nagging to go again, a great experience.

Awesome Ocean Adventure Tour

Adrenaline packed ocean adventure ride...smacking over waves and doing donuts. It was a choppy day on the water but Nathan went above and beyond to give us an awesome trip. He even extended our trip for an extra 1/2 hour so that we could find and watch a family of whales as they played and passed by us. You'll get wet...but you'll love it!!

Awe-inspiring sightings of giants

Struck it lucky and saw loads of whales in the second hour of our trip, including one whopper that breached completely out of the water two times in a row. Even though conditions were a little rough, with many whitecaps, we spotted several lots of spouts and Nathan took us over to these pods but not too close. Amazing to see mothers and newborns cruising along in groups of four or so. One cow and calf snuck up on us and passed right under the boat. Another pod swam close to shore near Hells Gate, where a juvenile played around raising its big head out of the water, thumping its tail, waving a flipper. We also saw several dolphins. Loved it all. The boat trip would be a lot of fun even without the wildlife.

I wouldn't hesitate to go again soon. Best way to see the whales.

Going on the Noosa Oceanrider was a great experience, best price with a safe, professional and informative skipper. I wouldn't hesitate to go again soon. Best way to see the whales.
