What Our Guests Are Saying

Birthday treat

My husband, who is celebrating his 70th birthday today enjoyed our trip very much. Nathan is friendly and knowledgeable and made our adventure fun and exhilarating. We saw plenty of dolphins along the way. I recommend this activity to anyone wanting a fast ride along the coast south of Noosa.

Thank you very much, Nathan, for really amazing thrill ride:)) it was the best ride, perfect timing weather-wise and waves wise. Watching the dolphin pods like you guys said we might find was also one of the highlights of the thrill ride. Thank you also very much, Nathan, for looking after our safety as well. Hope to see you guys again very very soon😁😁

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 😍🐬

Fantastic experience

A couple of false starts but the staff were amazing in finding solutions & getting it resolved. The day was a fantastic experience. Staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. Got to see dolphins as promised & was a great start to what was a beautiful day.

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.
