Amazing and great experience for everyone. Amazing place & scenery!

Amazing experience, lots of fun! My husband and I with my 16 and 21-year-old children went on this ride and it was the absolute highlight of our whole trip to Noosa! So much fun jumping the waves, great sightseeing included and saw lots of dolphins, definitely a true thrill ride!! I would 100% recommend and we will be back for another ride!
