Thrill Rides & Dolphin Excursions in Queensland

We look forward to welcoming you aboard, and guarantee you a memorable experience.



OceanRider has been sharing the coastal Headland section of the Noosa National Park for longer than any other tour boat operator. Since 2001 we have been privileged to have had literally tens of thousands of visitors from every corner of the globe join us on our adrenaline charged THRILL RIDE which takes people around the perimeter of the Park from Noosa to Sunshine Beach and back.

Fast forward to 2017. In the past, our ocean tour had only two speeds “FAST” OR “FASTER”. A lot of fun for those who feel the need for speed, but definitely not suitable for everyone. Long story short – 2017 saw the introduction of our DOLPHIN SAFARI. An ECO ADVENTURE for those who would like to see the sights of our beautiful National Park at a speed that anyone can handle.

We give you time to “stop and smell the roses” on this trip. Unlike our Thrill ride, the Dolphin Safari is suitable for anyone from 7 years+ even Nana and Pop will love it as long as they are still reasonably fit. So now you can take your pick….The only question now is “how do you like your boat rides FAST or CRUISY” ?

What Our Guests Are Saying

21st Birthday!

"Today was my daughters 21st birthday. We all work odd shifts so Monday was the only day that worked for us, it's off season but these guys accommodated us and all bar one we filled the boat, it's my 4 th time on the ocean rider and if you are in need of an adrenaline rush.. You can closely compare this to the best part of a roller coaster ride but for 1 hour .. Loved it . It won't be our last . And noosaville is an amazing place to holiday with heaps to do on the river and fantastic restaurants .. A must x"

So much fun. A must do!

"My friend (who's frequented this experience) talked me and my family on this a few days ago. It was amazing! You get to see a lot of the beautiful coastline and learn a little too. But I think the best part is the pilot took us on a thrill ride that didn't make us feel like we were in danger, but when you're speeding into a wave your heart gets going."

So much fun!

"My family (including 2 teenagers) went on the Noosa Oceanrider and had a blast. So much fun. Nick was a great host and made the trip so much fun. Highly recommend spending the money and having a go at this."

Great trip for the boys

"I took this trip with 2 x12 year old boys and we had a blast. Nick skipper was very knowledgable and extremely confident and felt safe when jumping waves and 360 turns. Spotted 2 pods of dolphins bonus and would recommend."


"Unbelievable!!! What a great way to spend the afternoon. Nick was amazing and showed us around the coastline, also patiently showing us the dolphins and whales. Nothing negative to say."


"This was my favourite part of my holiday in Noosa. So much more fun than I could have imagined. (Also got to see whales up close which was amazing)"
