Bali Water Sports to Get Your Adrenaline Pumping

For thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies alike, Bali water sports include some of the more conventional water sports and a decent amount of not-so-conventional activities too!

Bali water sports - surfing


Out of all Bali water sports, surfing is undoubtedly the most famous. Bali’s legendary surf breaks are known to surfers from around the world. Check which dates you are visiting as international surfing competitions are held annually in Bali too.


For experienced wakeboarders, Bali’s waves are a dream come true! For those who are just getting started, or who want to try wakeboarding for the first time, one of the most famous Bali water sports parks, includes the wakeboard park. The park allows visitors to zip up and down on the water park to their heart’s content – while under instruction or supervision to ensure safety.

Water Skiing

One of the lesser-known of Bali water sports is water skiing. While in some areas it’s not possible due to waves, for those who are cruising it’s possible to enjoy waterskiing out on the flat calm of the open ocean!

Banana Boating

While not technically a water sport, Banana boating has to be one of the most fun activities that can be enjoyed by adults and children alike.

Bali is not only home to a wakeboard park, it’s also home to Waterbom! Waterbom is an action-packed day out with huge slides, vertical drops and the chance to try surfing the waverider!

Where to do Water Sports in Bali

Depending on which of Bali water sports you would like to take part in, and the time of year you are visiting, locations vary. The best scuba diving is along Bali’s east coast and the islands of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida. Surfing for beginners is available all year round, but more experienced surfers will rotate from east to west every 6 months according to the wind direction.

Bali Water Sports and Safety Tips

When taking part in Bali water sports always do so with a reputable and knowledgeable operator. Onboard el Aleph, our experienced crew includes scuba divers, fishermen, and some expert surfing guides. Our zodiac tender captains are well-versed in towing water skiers and wakeboarders too.

How Much do Water Sports Cost in Bali

Prices vary according to the activity and the level of supervision required. Other factors that will determine the price include whether or not you bring your own equipment or if you need to hire gear from a Bali water sports operator. If the activity requires a boat, this will also be an added cost to cover fuel, boat captain and crew. In Bali, prices can also vary according to the season and many operators offer high and low season prices. Beware though that the low season price is often offered when the sea conditions are less than optimal for the activity.

For those who choose to opt for a private yacht charter, however, the use of many of the water toys, including the tender, is included in the charter fee.

Enjoy Bali Water Sports by Private Yacht

If you want to enjoy Bali water sports in luxury, there is no finer way to do so than by private yacht. The level of luxury and exemplary service on board cannot be beaten. A private charter uniquely ensures the ultimate in personalized service and unfettered attention. Imagine surfing the waves you want to surf – and when you want to surf them!
