Your Watersports Guide to Monkey Island

There’s never a bad time to enjoy watersports near Monkey Island. The waters surrounding Monkey Island are perfect for all kinds of water activities. When you’re on vacation to Northeast Oklahoma, getting out on the water and enjoying thrilling activities is an ideal way to spend a day. 

With our location on Monkey Island, the team at Shangri-La Resort knows a thing or two about watersports. We’re here to help you plan a fun-filled day on the lake. Here’s our guide to watersports near Monkey Island. 

Boating Near Monkey Island

With deep water and wide channels, Grand Lake is the perfect place for boating. On a daily basis, you’ll find boats of all types out on the lake. If you have your own boat, bring it on your trip with you, Shangri-La has a full-service 240 boat slip marina at the resort. Don’t own a boat? Don’t worry; we offer boat rentals as well. Our boat rentals on Monkey Lake include:

  • Fishing Boats
  • Ski Boats
  • Pontoon Boats
  • Tritoon Boats

With our rentals, you will be out on the water in no time, and you’ll be able to spend an idyllic day cruising Grand Lake. Pack your sunscreen and some beverages, and you’re in for a glorious day on one of the best boating lakes in Oklahoma. 

Ride a Jet Ski

Boating isn’t the only way to get around Grand Lake. For guests with a need for speed, we recommend zooming across the lake on a jet ski. Grand Lake’s wide-open spaces give you plenty of room to zip around, and you can easily navigate the lake’s many channels. If you need to rent one, we have jet ski rentals available at Shangri-La marina as well. 

Reach New Heights Parasailing

Thrillseekers on Monkey Island love parasailing on Grand Lake. Ride on a boat before getting strapped into a harness attached to a canopy wing, which resembles a parachute. After being strapped in, the boat will accelerate, and you’ll get sent up higher and higher into the sky. This watersport is definitely not for those with a fear of heights! However, once in the air, you’ll have excellent views of Monkey Island, Grand Lake, and the area’s gorgeous scenery. Parasailing is undoubtedly an experience you’ll remember forever. 

Stay in Luxury on Monkey Island

After an exciting day out on Grand Lake, return to Shangri-La Resort and relax in well-appointed accommodations. In addition to our resort and marina, Shangri-La also offers a championship golf course, tantalizing restaurants, and on-site activities. Whether you’re traveling for business or taking a good old-fashioned family vacation, we have you covered. Book with us online now!
