Wakeboarding & Waterskiing
In the need for speed? Horseshoe Bay offers fairly calm waters most of the year so it's the perfect spot to get a ski in.
When wet season arrives, Magnetic Island comes alive with waterfalls. Endeavour Falls in Arcadia is a the popular spot.
The old Nelly Bay Hellipad, (on the way to Base Backpackers), is the spot where you'll often catch the wind and some fun kitesurfing. Just check tide levels to make sure you're safe from the coral reef below.
