Delivered much more than I thought ! What a great hour of fun, and the best way to see the views of Noosa and surrounds... plus the odd sea turtle here and there - bit bumpy on the knees but still felt really safe ! Tons of fun

I took this trip with 2 x12 year old boys and we had a blast. Nick skipper was very knowledgable and extremely confident and felt safe when jumping waves and 360 turns. Spotted 2 pods of dolphins bonus and would recommend.

I thought I was going to get that "one off tourist trip" but the 4 of us got off saying that bettered our expectations. Whales out the front of Noosa main beach and then... More

What a great experience. Nick is a great tour guide/driver. We saw over 20 dolphins and a humpback whale. The kids had an absolute ball. The youngest had trepidations about going but as soon as the boat landed back she said "can we go again?" Great family fun.

My partner and I experienced the ocean rider yesterday afternoon. Would definitely recommend it to everyone! So fast, very fun and totally worth the money. Tour guide was very approachable and fun to have on board! Will definitely do it again one day.
