      Outstanding and memorable Wild Dolphin Trip
      Incredible seeing Wild Dolphins experience with Brent and Min on Christmas Eve for my auntie's birthday present. Brent (aka Aquaman) knows a lot about the coasts including histories, people and animals. We learnt many new things from him. We love to come back to join another wild sealife trip with them. Also, we were impressed with their high standard of customer service, especially Min. She is an outstanding supporter. She always makes sure that you will be on the trip. Highly recommended to family, couples and others who love seeing the wild sea life closely.

      Dolphin Thriller tour...must do
      Great tour! We went on 31 Dec and saw a large pod of dolphins, which came up close to the boat. Perfect day! Brent gave excellent commentary, even as a local of 12 years I learnt something new!

      Up close and personal!
      Best experience! We got to see quite a few whales, especially a mother and her calf up close and personal. Andrew was great in dealing with, esepcially as our original cruise with another company was cancelled due to mechanical issues. Andrew promised to ring if there were a cancellation and he did. 10 out of 10 service from start to end. Highly recommend this company!

      Amazing Experience!
      Today, we were lucky enough to experience the 2 hours Noosa Whale Watching Tour. We were amazed to see an adult Hump Back whale while she was feeding her young calf. Our tour guide Bill had a great sense of humour and was incredibly knowledgeable about the Noosa National Park and Sunshine Coast history. He was also very respectful of the beautiful whales and respected their space. We then got to see a large group of dolphins to top an overall wonderful experience!

      Impressive experience
      We really enjoyed an almost private boat tour, we were only 4 people and captain Bill. The weather was perfect, our captain explained what we saw on the coast. We had to lookout for dolphins. At the begging it is hard to differentiate waves and dolphin fins but then we saw them around sunshine coast, in groups. It was wonderful seeing them in their natural habitat. They didn't get close to the boat. The boat was very comfy, no plastic chairs, more like horse riding. I definetly recommend. No whales this time of year though.

      No Whales found in season
      The boat fantastic comfy safety brief good. I was really hoping to see whales as we have been to a few spots and seen offshore .I thought they may have done homework and found out some locations to where they have been spotted or how far out they would be . Spent hour and half all looking around and around . Saw nothing . Disappointed as paid to see whales . Lots of history chat but I just wanted to draw from man's experience to find whales. Bit pricey if just for joy ride , I did get bored . As it's slow tour as stated. Wished tour guide did more homework on whale locations . So sorry as was so looking forward to this and it was a big spend for me and a lot of time getting there and back for not much return.

      We didn't get to see any whales this time but we enjoyed the boat ride regardless. Bill is a very experienced skipper, felt so safe in his care. Thankyou

      Worth the ride
      My partner and I went out on thriller and had a exhilarating experience. Bill was an excellent guide and we eventually spotted a humpback whale with her calf. Recommend trying thriller out to anyone. Seat was nice and comfortable also and I got to see another view of the Noosa/Sunshine Beach coastline.

      We saw dolphins in their natural habitat
      The family went on the early morning dolphin cruise and were not disappointed. Legend tour guide that has lived in the area for many years and knows plenty of local history. The surrounds were pristine and the dolphins were spectacular.

    Just paid for a 2 hr whale watching experience and the driver returned us after 1 hr 20 mins, when questioned on the time the response I got was 'that's long enough'!!. It got even worse when I dared to ask for a partial refund for the 40 mins we didn't get. Wouldn't use again and I would recommend going with someone else who actually gives you the time you paid for !

    Oh So sad. Very disappointed with the extremely rude presumptuous female attendant today

    She presumed that my group of 4 all in our sixties were not able to cope with the jet boat ride!

    She clearly needs training in customer service!

    Even if her presumptions turned out to be true she could have arrived at the answer in so many ways where we all wouldn’t be wanting you to know this.
    She became verbally hostile because we were offended! Ffs!!!!

    Well done my dear friend who felt the need to do 20 pushups as we walked back past her

    Clearly New Zealand jet boats and Tasmanian jet boat operators are far nicer and assess risk bir presume risk!
    Stay clear rude dude dude

    Maybe she should be pensioned off!

    My 9 year old son nearly fell asleep. He was asking me "Dad when can we get off I am so bored". The driver is 80 years old if he is a day (see previous review from another customer - couldn't agree more).
    So disappointing. Absolutely nothing like the amazing experience I had in Sydney harbor previously where the ride was exciting, we got wet, tossed about and laughed our heads off. This "ride" was soooo conservative. Absolutely no chance to get wet as the driver simply incapable of the turns / speed. Such a let down.
    Please read this review and avoid. I promised my son I would save as many others as possible from not throwing away $150 and losing valuable time on their holiday.

    It was a truly exhilarating ride and quite a physical experience. Not for the faint hearted. The turns were awesome and riding through and jumping the swell was great. The boat captain had a great time as well with informative commentary and a good sense of humour.

    Great fun ride. Mixture of fun; fast-paced speeding through the waves and slow-paced sightseeing from the ocean. Whole experience lasts about an hour so good value for money. And from someone who gets seasickness extremely easily, I had no problems with the sea swell either.

    We enjoyed a fabulous day in Noosaville starting with a trip aboard the Noosa Thriller. The views of the National Park and beaches were absolutely spectacular. Highly recommend as a way to sight see Noosa and to cool down. Be prepared for lots of laughter and sea spray !

    The whole family loved the tour. The lady at check in was great and the bloke that took us out was awesome, knowledgeable and good operator. We had been on other Jet Boats before but this was easily the best as he gets some decent air as well as seeing the sights and learning about the area.

    My daughter and I had the best time. It was super exciting and fun. We also got to see a lot of the coastline. Seeing pods of dolphins was such a treat. If you’re in Noosa and looking for an adventure, do yourself a favour a book Noosa Thriller. We can’t wait to go again.
