Such a good value tour! I booked this through Gilligan's and they weren't wrong in telling me it would be an epic day! We spent the whole day wakeboarding, wake surfing and stand up paddle boarding too! its such a good value trip and would totally do it again if I had more time!

Did this trip for the second time and it was awesome, as always....Damo now has a jet ski which is an optional extra and HIGHLY recommended. I commend Damo for managing to run the whole trip, ride the boat, do hostel transfers, make an awesome lunch and still keep the whole day very relaxed. Even with no prior experience anybody... More

Having lived in Cairns for over 7 months and doing literally everything Cairns and the surrounding regions has to offer, this day managed to beat a pretty amazing selection of days out in FNQ, no mean feat. We arrived as a group of housemates celebrating our last weekend together before we all part of on separate ways around the world.... More

Of all the things to do in and around Cairns, this is right up there with the best of them. Great value for money for everything that's included. I'd never wakeboarded before, but Damo is a good teacher and I had an awesome day out on the lake. I really would recommend this to anyone!

It was my first time wakeboarding, and I had to say it was one of the coolest things I've ever done. Even though I could barely get up, Damo was super patient and encouraging with me. The lake was also gorgeous. You could paddle board and just chill on the boat if you are feeling lazy. Damo picked us up... More
