Transform into the fastest thing on Bay Lake as you skim across the water and wow onlookers onshore.

Skiing Is Believing

Ready? Set? Ski! You won’t need a mountain, poles or snow to get speedy on this magical ride. Head on down to Disney’s Contemporary Resort marina, where the world-class instructors at Sammy Duvall’s Watersports Centre can accommodate all ages and skill levels, from first-timers to first-rate.

For kids and beginners, a private dry lesson will show you all the key tips you’ll need to become a superstar once you hit the water.

And if you’re advanced? Get ready for top-level instruction that’ll up your game and maybe even help you bust that next big trick you’ve been trying.

Two Skis… or Not Two Skis

The choice is yours: pave the traditional path with 2 skis, go slalom-style with one or try both for more fun. Advanced skiers will also have the chance to take on a 6-buoy, unsighted Accu-float course, available on the west side of Bay Lake—conditions are best in the morning, so be sure you schedule a wake-up call!

Book a 1- or 2-hour ski session, and you can also try your hand (or feet) at:

  • Wakeboarding
  • Wake skating
  • Wake surfing

And if you get too tired to stand, don’t worry—you can always get down with some tubing instead. All equipment is provided and included in the cost of your excursion. 

You can even relive the exciting rides later on with a GoPro video package, available at an additional charge.

Know Before You Go

This is the kind of ride that’s definitely going to get you soaked, so bring along an extra change of clothes. Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit either, as well as footwear for walking on the dock and some sunscreen too. Sunglasses are another great idea… just be sure they’ve got a strap, or they might fly right off your head! 

Please arrive 15 minutes early for check-in. Minors under 18 years of age must have an adult present to sign waivers prior to boarding.

Sammy Duvall’s water skiing excursions feature Master Craft boats and Connelly equipment. Up to 5 friends or family members can ride along in the boat free of charge, if room allows. (Rider inclusion is not guaranteed and will be determined at the time of your session.) 

Everyone must wear life jackets in the water—no exceptions!
