Ride the famous Noosa Thriller

Hop aboard for a thrilling ocean jetboat ride with Noosa's most experienced ocean water sports company, established since 1978.

From when you cross the dramatic bar of the Noosa River mouth on Noosa's most popular jetboat ride, until when you return one hour later, you'll feel the salt spray, the wind in your hair, and experience an awesome 500-horsepower, high performance ride which includes wave-jumping, ocean swell surfing, 360-degree turns, and figure-eights.

The best jetboat ride on the Sunshine Coast
Along the way you will be enthralled by the views of the spectacular Noosa National Park coastline with its rocky cliffs, lush subtropical rainforest, hidden beaches and secluded coves. You'll likely encounter dolphins, manta rays, and sea turtles and any number of seabirds, while whales can be watched from June to November.

With seating for 12 passengers, our 150mm foam padded air ball cushioning seats are 350 mm wide with three feet positions to suit all leg lengths.

The Boat – Tough and Safe
Noosa Thriller is built for maximum strength, safety, speed and manoeuvrability. Our 500-HP, Australian-designed and made vessel, is constructed from high tensile, 5083 aluminium 6mm plate. The craft is foam-filled for positive floatation, and is virtually bulletproof – there are no air bags on this boat.

We have more than 36 years experience in commercial ocean boating activities and lifejackets and safety equipment are supplied.
