I was skeptical, but it turned out to be wrong! Our guide had a lot of knowledge about dolphins and whales, and most of all he knew where to look for them! We saw a lot of dolphins and we also saw whales. The wave rally gave us a lot of fun. The trip is definitely worth the price.

Super fun trip. At the beginning we didn't see any dolphins, but luckily we saw them swimming about 3 meters from our kayak. Also good guides who tell a lot about the area and enough time to relax.

This is a great boat trip! We saw lots of dolphins and it's also a really good way to see the coastline from Noosa to Sunshine Beach. Just stunning. We had an awesome time.

One of the best days I’ve had on a holiday. Vince was an awesome guide. We were privileged to have plenty of dolphins swimming around us.

Great day out. Guides were very friendly and helpful. They had heaps of information on the area of the tour. Well worth the trip.
