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 Water Police 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, 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.

Lovely morning on the water

Easy to find in Noosa Marina. Nathan greeted us on arrival and introduced us to the other passengers. The boat ride was fantastic, smooth and we felt safe at all times. Looking back onto the mainland from the water was stunning, fabulous scenery including the trip from the Marina out to sea along the Noosa River. Highly recommended.

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.
