What Our Guests Are Saying


Wow!! What a great ride! We took our daughter on Oceanrider for her 16th birthday and we had the best time. So much fun and screams of delight as we sped through the bar, up and down the waves with lots of thrills along the way. We headed across the sound and enjoyed the views beautiful Noosa coastline...and bonus we saw a pod of dolphins. Highly recommended for an action adventure.

Wowsers! An unbelievable morning spent with Christian. I’ve done the dolphin safari before and wanted to do it again. We saw a huge pod of dolphins of Sunshine Beach. We were literally surrounded by them! How amazing to see.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!!!! Got to see 2 different types of dolphins and the scenery was unforgettable!! The return trip was made even more memorable with fast boat turns. The knowledge of the boat skipper was incredible and his boat skills made a safe trip for us!!!!

Incredible experience

Incredible experience - I went alone and instantly felt very welcomed by Nathan and the rest of the attendees. During the tour we seen some dolphins although I wasn’t expecting it as it’s out of the tours control.. but it was incredible. The boat was very thrilling while chopping through the waves, but I felt safe the whole time! Would highly recommend as a solo person joining or a group! Thanks for everything.
