This beautiful scenic trip around the coastal Headland section of Noosa National Park takes it nice and easy. The relaxed pace which means it’s suitable for children from 7 years and up and adults of any age as long as still reasonably fit and able.


Experience the exhilaration of being out on the open ocean as Ocean Rider takes you on an unforgettable journey around Noosa’s magnificent unspoilt coastline. No matter which trip you choose we guarantee the same spectacular scenery….stunning natural cliff formations, lush emerald forests, pristine little coves and sweeping beaches, secret caves – topped off with a photo opportunity with our impressive rocky headland ‘Hells Gates’ as the back drop.

As for “WILD”life sightings – no two trips are the same. Rest assured we do our best to introduce you to our dolphin friends – they know the Oceanrider well. Our park is home not only to dolphins but an impressive array of other sea and coastal life. On any given day we may come across our graceful sea birds the most common being Kites, Shearwaters and Gannets having fun in the thermal updrafts along the cliffs and in the winter months humpback whales frequent our shores in ever increasing numbers each year from June to October. (Best months for whale sightings are Sept and Oct in Noosa). Please understand this is not Sea World. Our amazing wild creatures sometimes have other plans which doesn’t include us. Sightings are likely but not guaranteed.
