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.


Our RIB style of boat is used world wide in many different applications from coast guard and surf rescue to water police and the Australian Navy. It’s comfortable and designed to give the smoothest ride possible out on the waves and the open ocean.

A maximum of 12 passengers seated in 6 rows of 2 means everyone gets a “window seat”, and is able to experience the diverse natural beauty of our park exactly the way it should be seen….up close and personal! Your driver Nick is Australia’s most experienced Ocean Thrill Boat skipper having done thousands of trips around the National Park since the business began in 2001.

Basically your in good hands, all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride !
