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.

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.
