Water Ski/Jet Ski

The best place for these sports is Swan Lake which is the location for many water activities; however St Georges Basin is also great for water sports as it is a large area with no speed limits. Please remember to observe the speed limits in the Inlet to preserve our environment and to protect your wallet from RMS fines.
