Other options include learning to stand up paddle board, foiling, landbuggy, and blokart lessons. SUP and Kayak tours are also available.

#6. Jet Ski

Hit the water on a thrill-seeking guided jet ski tour through Bribie Island's waterways and out onto Moreton Bay. Gliding across beautiful unrestricted waterways, through winding mangrove-lined channels, and out on the open ocean amidst breathtaking Moreton Bay Marine Park scenery, this is a Christmas gift a lucky family member won’t soon forget!

No license? No worries! You don’t need any jet ski riding experience, or a license to take part. Book now with Moreton Bay Jet Ski Hire & Ride.
