My boys rode the tube (they are 14 and 10) and laughed the entire time. Great value for money and a highlight of the trip! The owner was very friendly and accomodating. Such a cool activity for kids to do.

Great family holiday spot at Horseshoe Bay Magnetic Island! Ski biscuit Tube rides and catamaran hire the highlights of the holiday! Spotted several turtles on catamaran hire and large fish jumping several times out of water, WOW! Kids loved it!

Absolutely amazing time! Worth every penny. Australia is going to turn into a regular home for me and plans are already in the works as to when we will return for the fun offered at this location on Magnetic Island. Thanks for the tow in!

The kids and hubbie went out in the tubes and came out with sore abs from laughing so much and holding themselves up from the waves. Wonderful addition to our holidays. Thank you!

Our kids love to go tubing when we visit Horseshoe Bay with visiting cousins/aunts/uncles/friends. I love to jump in the boat as spotter and watch the looks on their faces when they get in a whip and launch off the wake. Driver is very experienced...More
