What people are saying about Noosa

The tour was amazing. We saw some whales on the Beach Drive and when we were on the Kayaks we saw dolphins and turtles. Vince is a really good and fun tour guide. He shares his knowledge of the Ocean life and we learned a lot from him. We really enjoyed the day and would recommend this tour at any time.

The trip was unique. You have enough time to look at everything in peace and to bathe. You are not all alone, but the beach is anything but crowded. At lunch there was no other car in sight. Our guide explained everything great.

Great. Tom was knowledgeable and patient. Explained things clearly.

Fantastic experience and brilliant guide. Highly recommend
