What Our Guests Are Saying

Thank you!

Thank you Noosa Oceanrider and our experienced skipper Nathan for an exhilarating Thrill ride this afternoon. We had so much fun and really enjoyed being out on the ocean off Noosa and seeing the National Park from a new perspective. Seeing the Dolphins 🐬 was a highlight. We loved the boat, super smooth, plenty of power and comfortable !! Highly recommend this on your Noosa Adventure list, and we can’t wait to go again! Thank you 🙏 👍👏

Nathan from Oceanrider is a skilled and entertaining boat captain.

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.
