We offer a wide variety of activities for all ages

stradbroke-island-tube-ride.jpg

Tube Rides 

From $29/person

No matter who you are or how long you've spent on the water EVERYBODY LOVES TUBING!! Riders are towed on tubes behind a boat bouncing along which when turned have a tendency to flick out sideways leaving riders laughing while frantically holding on.

stradbroke-island-jet-ski-hire.jpg

Jet Ski Hire

From $179/90min

South Stradbroke water sports has 4 x Seadoo GTI 130 horsepower Jet Skis. Under our supervision no licence is required to drive our Jet Skis on your own. Full instruction is given beforehand on how to ride and control the jet skis safely before being escorted to the Jet Ski track for the time of your life!

Speed Boat Ride

From $29/person

This speedboat reaches 96 kph and no matter how fast I can turn the wheel the boat grips to the water leaving passengers laughing yet very tightly gripping their grab rail.

The speed boat like the tubes can be driven as fast or slow as riders would like therefore, again, this can be appreciated by toddlers all the way through to grandparents.

stradbroke-island-sand-boarding.jpg

Sandboarding

From $39/120min

Great fun for the kids and whole family, join us as we speed down the mountains of sand. BYO Sandboard or boogie board or we can arrange equipment for you. "Tip - use candle wax to ensure a smooth ride"

Surf Lessons

We, at Couran Cove, have found the trick to making surfing fun is to make it as easy and safe as possible. 

Your first lesson will start off with a lesson on the beach, giving instruction on what will happen once your in the water, how to catch a wave on your belly, and how to get to your feet once caught. The technique taught will change depending on how each students body moves and then be practiced on the dry sand until each student can get to their feet fluently.

By the end of the first lesson all students should be able to stand on a wave surfing towards the shore. Make sure you smile at the camera! 

Surfing is suitable for ages 4 and up.

" Lachlan was just fantastic. He worked with us booking last minute, came and 'found' us on the water and made us all feel so comfortable, looked after and safe at every step. "

Rebecca Humphreys

" We did a surfing lesson, even mum got to stand. He was really patient as one of the boys was a little apprehensive. "

Bernadette Barrett

"Great fun and there is something for everyone! Adrenalin junkies and those who want to experience a bit of fun on the water."

Jenny Fitzpatrick

"Lachlan makes you feel at ease from the moment you step onto the boat until you leave.
Awesome adventure. I recommend the Ultimate Package. "
