We had an amazing adventure with Noosa Thriller! The team were friendly and we got to see Dolphins. The tour itself was informative and a great adventure out at sea. Would highly recommend for those looking for a memorable trip seeing the beautiful Noosa beaches, the amazing wildlife and those looking for a bit of adventure and excitement!

Very nice place, very quiet. Not a huge number of birds, but the surrounding forest reflected in the water more than makes up for it. The tour would benefit from being extended a little to better enjoy the sunset

Brilliant. We had a great guide, who went out of his way to Include everyone. We saw a Kolas in a tree which was a highlight.

Very well organised and we had a very knowledgeable tour guide who is originally from the region.

Very fun and beautiful landscapes ! Brent & Min are adorable ☀️
