Water Skiing, wake boarding and tube riding on the Nambucca River’s beautiful, natural waterways near Macksville NSW just can’t be beaten!

Our ski school caters for learners through to the more experienced water skier or wake boarder. Everyone will have fun on the water!

Tube rides can be as mild or wild as you like, Dave will look after your safety at all times.

All activity and safety equipment is provided – just bring along your swimmers, sun screen, towel, drink, nibbles, a camera and friends to join in the fun and take photos.

The ski season is best from October through to June, as the weather is good and the water is warm.

We’ll meet you and hit the water from the Lions Park boat ramp on the Northern bank of the Nambucca River, just over the bridge from the centre of Macksville. We are also just a short drive from other tourist centres such as Nambucca Heads, Coffs Harbour, South West Rocks, Kempsey and Port Macquarie so why not make a day trip and join us.
