      A phenomenal experience!!!
      This is one of the BEST things we have done in Noosa. Christian was delightful, professional and an awesome tour guide. The trip itself was phenomenal, well priced and exceptional value for money. We saw so many dolphins out near Hells Gates and Fairy pools, so many!!! Got some great photos and footage. A great trip for the entire family. We will lock this in again for sure. 10/10

      Dolphins in the ocean
      It's interesting to go to the ocean and discover dolphins in the wildness. The ride has beautiful views of the sea, the excitement of going up and down like a roller coaster in a mild way and the sea breeze.

      Go earlier than October
      Good short trip for whale watching but probably too late in the season ( late Oct) to see anything. We saw dolphins but no whales.

      Great fun, saw whales. Boat fun, bumpy on big waves but best way to get quickly to where whales are.

      Whales and their grunts up close
      Comfortable and safe ride out into Noosa Bay. Saw a few mother whales and their calves up close, flapping fins and tails. The weather was great, the water was calm and the ride was a great adventure

      Must Do When in Noosa
      What a glorious experience!!! Jumping over the waves, flying above turquoise water trying to spot a whale, and the engine became quiet. Our skipper Christian said we are in ‘neutral’. And then we saw a tail…once you see and hear a whale, it's something you'll never forget. We were lucky enough to see a whale breach, that was OMG moment (my photos don’t capture the hundredth of the real feeling) thank you Christian for this fantastic experience 🐋

      Front row seats to a great time!
      We had a great time on the whale watching boat trip. The boat is fast and zippy, so the journey out to sea was fun and exciting! When we found some whales… which was pretty fast, it was amazing. We were lucky to see several groups of whales, breaching, slapping their pectoral fins on the surface, and tail slapping! We saw a dolphin too☺️ Some of the whales came quite close to the boat too, so lots of great pictures. Christian, our skipper was full of great fun facts, and answered all of our questions with enthusiasm. He made it most enjoyable. I loved this trip, and will gladly recommend it to anyone, and would happily do it again myself.

      Beautiful, fun experience admiring these amazing mammals
      Wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable, friendly guide Christian. We had the perfect weather conditions and saw many whales,it was fun looking out into the vast water spotting them and racing over to see these beautiful mammals. The boat ride was very enjoyable and fun. Next time Im in Noosa id definitely do it again.

      Fantastic fun!
      Great tour and ride at a bargain price! I booked this for a Friday morning as a solo traveller, I had no idea what I was in for but it was so much fun! The fuides were friendly and helped with anything needed, shared some great insights into the humpback whales, and we were able to see a few, including a brand new calf! I do highly recommend waterproof clothing as much as possible, dress for cold weather because on the open water you will freeze as more than likely you will be drenched and if you are short (I'm 5'3) be prepared to climb over the seating, it's high but mostly comfortable. Highly recommend this tour!

    You HAVE to do this. Kids or not.
    Imaging taking the river jet boats of New Zealand and setting them free in the open ocean. Crashing over waves one minute only to make a swift u-turn and ride the face of that same wave the next. Our driver was clearly very experienced and made everyone feel very safe and comfortable throwing in a few dad jokes along the way. We even stopped a few times for a seat swap so everyone got the most out of their experience.
    What an amazing day.

    12 screaming ladies in the Thriller boat...poor Nathan. But he was great and gave us lots of fast and furious thrills. There was lots of screaming, laughter and getting a bit wet, we loved it. We even managed to see dolphins at play while we cruised the waters around Noosa. Perfect weather, perfect ride, perfect host. Would highly recommend this ride. Thank you to Noosa Oceanrider for a wonderful afternoon.

    I booked the Noosa Oceanrider Adventure Tour for 9 of my family aged between 70s and teen years and everyone loved it. It was much better than I expected. Nathan is a laid back character and excellent jet boat driver and guide. The icing on the cake was the large school of dolphins which swam very close to our boat. Our tour was undertaken in mild seas but was still fast and furious at times. Having experienced this ride with Nathan I would now not hestiate to go on a ride in wilder seas, I think that would be probably a bit scary but even more exciting.

    My 10 year old son and I had a great time on the Noosa Adventure ride- lots of speed, waves and 360s. Nathan the driver made sure everyone had the opportunity to sit up the front and skilfully navigated the choppy water. Great value and highly recommend

    We had the best time with Nathan and Oceanrider Thrill Ride. We all laughed out loud numerous times after jumping over waves and being drenched with water. The scenery was stunning, we saw lots of dolphins and Nathan was a really knowledge captain. I highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Sunshine Coast.

    Adrenaline packed ocean adventure ride...smacking over waves and doing donuts. It was a choppy day on the water but Nathan went above and beyond to give us an awesome trip. He even extended our trip for an extra 1/2 hour so that we could find and watch a family of whales as they played and passed by us. You'll get wet...but you'll love it!!

    We had a fabulous time on our 1 and a half hour trip from the Tewantin Marina and out past Noosa to Sunshine Beach. Lots of laughter and thrills, not to mention the excitement of seeing 2 big pods of dolphins on our trip. Definitely a must do and value for money.

    We really enjoyed the tour, it was lots of fun. Nathan (tour operator and boat driver) was great, accommodating and helpful with rebooking and throughout the whole tour. We got to do some good runs up along some waves, spins, and fast open water riding as well as seeing the local pack of dolphins that Nathan knew where they were. Would recommend to others and would do again.

    When I booked a whale watching cruise I didn’t research properly, so we didn’t realise we had booked on this boat (picturing something more like a ferry serving champagne, haha). So glad to have make this mistake. We had an absolute ball! There was a bit of bouncing around but we always felt safe and had an amazing time.

    What a day with Nathan. We booked for a wild ride through swells and waves and we were certainly exhilarated with the speed and maneuverability. What we didn't expect was the dolphins and huge whales we saw next to our boat. It was spectacular! If a 74yo can have a ball, anyone can.
