What a Buzz!!!

Scenery was lovely but the Thrill Ride was awesome. Nathan who was our host was amazing. So caring and supportive. It was adventure plus but you always felt totally safe. Highly recommend it. My husband is 77 and Nathan was so caring and attentive to his comfort.

Wonderful real thrill experience

We went on the Noosa Ocean rider Thill ride experience and to my knowledge this was one of the best experiences we've enjoyed at Noosa. Nathan took us for a spectacular ocean thrill ride comprising of numerous twists and turns on the speedboat and finally ending up with some beautiful dolphin pods swimming ride beside our boat. Triple stars for a truly memorable experience.

Loved it!! So scenic!

My husband and teenage daughter had a lovely morning out with Nathan. The tour travelled up the river from Tewantin and out over the waves (a bit of a thrill ride!) and we had stunning views of Main Beach and the national park. We saw two pods of dolphins and enjoyed seeing Noosa from a different perspective. Would highly recommend!

Definitely recommend going for a trip with Noosa Oceanrider.

Definitely recommend going for a trip with Noosa Oceanrider. We did the dolphin safari trip. Nathan was a great host, very informative and made us feel welcome throughout the trip. we saw plenty of dolphins, birds, turtles and even stingrays. We had a fantastic time and we will definitely be doing another trip again. On a side note, I have a spinal disability and Nathan was extremely sympathetic and helpful with this. He made no judgements about whether I could do the trip and pretty much left this decision with me. This was a great experience for someone who has a disability.

Did the scenic dolphin safari with an 8 year old and a very anxious 7 year old. This was a fantastic experience and we all loved it. It was wonderful to see dolphins in the wild and the scenery is stunning. Our children are keen to come back and do the whale watching tour. This was the perfect family experience.
