You can go swimming upriver (I wouldnt swim by the mouth of the river due to the shark presence, plus the currents here are very strong, so swimmign is dangerous).
You can go on boat rides into the river itself, and do scuba diving in designated areas.
Equipment: If you want to do scuba diving, make sure you have a valid certificate for such, as well as all the necessary equipment.
