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.

Nick picked us up from the front of our resort in his boat and took us for a fun 1hr15 of whale watching and wave jumping. 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.

My wife and I went on the Ocean Rider at the end of December I would like to say that I am 69 and my wife is 68. My wife has a fear of water and boats so not a good combination I hear you say. Well we should not have worried the skipper explains everything to you and the... More

Our family (parents and three adult children) went on the Oceanrider on holiday recently in Noosa. Nick, our captain, was a great combination of laid-back, fun, competent and careful. He took us out on his South African military fast boat for a thrilling hour hooning around the bay and beach areas around Noosa. It was great fun (and hard work... More

This morning we had the ride of our lives. What a huge Buzz, up the river first for a few doughnut turns, zig zagging with fellow passenger all getting the hang of which way to lean, then out into the wild, very choppy ocean. Oh boy we flew over the waves only to come down with a thud, screems all... More
