What Our Guests Are Saying

Love Love Love!

This is one of the best things to do on the Sunshine Coast. Nathan was an absolute legend and ensured we all had a blast and we did! We had the chance to see Noosa and Sunshine Beach from a new perspective and were in awe of the beauty of this area. Thanks, Nathan for a great afternoon. We will be back!

An Exhilarating and Memorable Experience

Our skilled skipper Nathan provided us with a comprehensive safety briefing, and a warm, friendly welcome, putting us all at ease with his reassurance and humour. He then took us on an exhilarating ride around Noosa and Sunshine Beach, finding a pod of 6 beautiful dolphins gracefully diving in the ocean. It was a magical, memorable experience, which all of our group highly recommend as one not to be missed. Thank you, Nathan and Oceanrider for a wonderful, unforgettable day.

Whale Watching tour on Oceanrider

Spectacular!! We had a fabulous morning out on a Whale Watching Tour where we experienced everything you could hope for, plenty of whales showing off all manner of behaviours, multiple pods of dolphins and an exciting jet boat ride. Nathan was a fantastic tour guide and a very confident captain of the boat. I highly recommend this experience to all.
