Must do in Noosa!

Thanks, Penny and Nathan for an epic whale watching tour!! Highly recommended if you're after some fun and keen to see Noosa's (marine) wildlife..we saw some whales, dolphins and even a sea snake which was amazing. Nathan is a wealth of knowledge and its epic to see Noosa from the water :) Another bonus was that we were greeted by puppy Siggi who made us feel extra welcomed!!

Lovely & unforgettable experience with Penny & Nathan at Noosa Oceanrider

We have nothing but good things to say about this tour. It is the hospitality and warmth of Nathan and Penny that sets this tour apart from others. Thank you both for being amazing at what you do. From the thoughtful shuttle transfer from our AirBnb + Penny's enjoyable conversation and the company of little Siggy, to the comfortable, entertaining, and awesome whale watching boat trip with Nathan. Nathan is very experienced from the way he steered the boat, and was able to spot whales, turtles and dolphins from a distance. The boat was clean, well maintained and comfortable. Thanks for throwing in all the Noosa coastal sights, jokes and the fun thrill rides at the end! We wish we could do it again!

Highlight of our trip - AMAZING!

Nathan was a fantastic skipper. His local and whale related knowledge was first class. Nathan knew exactly what to look for to spot the whales. As a family with teenagers, it was a fabulous activity to do. We saw many whales and were fortunate enough to have them breaching right by us. Can definitely recommend!

These guys are just AWESOME!

These guys are just AWESOME! Loved every second - close to the water, speed thrown in for free and the whales and dolphins were magical! Penelope and Nate and the people to do this with - they care about their customers and their business is beyond compare. We were out for well over 2 hours - Nate's main concern was that we had a great time and got to see as much whale and dolphin magic as possible! The highlight of our holiday - thank you from the very bottom of our hearts! 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.
