Why not learn to kitesurf or kayak with Liquid Motion Water sports who are Exmouth based. There is scuba diving nearby as well and the coast is renowned for wrecks.
Fishing is also really popular here with day boats taking visitors out for some sea angling. Tiger Charters is just one company operation in the town.
