What should I look for when choosing a Watersports company?
Experience, Equipment, Location! Sammy Duvall was the World Champion Water Skier and he has hand picked an elite group of qualified and friendly instructors. Don’t be shy, ask what Experience your instructor has? You will find that our Parasailing Captains are both US Coast Guard Master Captain’s with over 15 years of experience each! You will find that many of our Ski Boat Instructors were/are on the Pro Tour, show teams, ski camps or Team Riders. For Equipment, we receive new Master Craft boats every 250 hours and feature brand leader, Connelly Skis & Wake Boards. Our Location at the Four Diamond rated Disney’s Contemporary Resort marina is what sets us apart from other watersports operations. Not only do you have Space Mountain as a back drop, but we have a section of Bay Lake buoyed off just for us and we have Disney’s “Lake Patrol” ensuring the highest level of safety on the lake.
