Best morning out on the water Capt Nathan was great with his information and a good sense of humour. There was no way he was giving up until he found the dolphins and it was well worth the wait, 2 big pods playing right near the boat. Do yourself a favour and don’t miss this trip it’s awesome!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review; it is disappointing that you missed the dolphins. As they are wild creatures, sightings are not guaranteed; however, our success rate is exceptionally high as they are resident dolphins.

Noosa Dolphin Safari - Ocean Rider

It was such an amazing experience and Nathan was really kind. We had to cancel our Adventure Boat Rafting due to bad weather and Nathan made sure to pop in some thrills. It was really nice of him. We will definitely be back! We had so much fun :) Highly recommend!
