Noosa is quite a famous destination for adventure seekers who love the vast waterscape. If you are headed for this side of Queensland and are ready to take on some pretty cool water sports activities, then read on for some ideas you might want to squeeze into your Sunshine Coast itinerary:

Take the Dolphin discovery tour. Join the child-friendly, two-hour cruise amidst the Pacific Ocean to spot Bottlenose and common dolphins and watch them do some cool bow-riding, plus feed the pelicans. Depending on the package you’ll avail of, you’ll be able to kick back with a delicious buffet lunch. Departing from Mooloolaba, this two-hour ride will let you pursue some of nature’s most graceful marine creatures. The cruises depart every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 12NN and return at 2PM.

Sunshine Coast Jet Boat Rides. Hop aboard the Hela-Va Jet and experience the thrill of a lifetime. This rare vessel has been specifically designed for wild open ocean Jet Boat Thrill rides. They don't zoom around on flat water. They do high speed spins on waves, surf waves and if you are lucky enough, even do the odd submerged “Wave-Dive,” “Figure 8s”, “Ducktails”, and other crazy but definitely safe maneuvres.

Be one with the waves with a round of paddle boarding. Stand Up Paddleboarding (or SUP) Noosa is Oz’s first and Noosa’s premiere choice for stand up paddle hire and lessons. It’s so easy, you’ll be able to stand up within the first session. SUP Noosa provides stand up paddle board hire and lessons to help people of different ages and abilities to experience this unique sport and explore the natural beauty surrounding the Noosa waterways.

Meanwhile, if you are planning to stay on Sunshine Coast for a weekend or two, why not indulge in a holiday home that sits right in the heart of Noosa?
