Keys Cable is a new watersports cable park where adventure sports enthusiasts and curious newcomers alike can safely and cost effectivelyparticipate in wakeboarding, wakeskating, waterskiing, kiteboarding and Stand Up Paddleboarding.Located on the ocean side at mile marker 59 on Grassy Key, Keys Cable has two 2-tower cable systems that are independently operated atop of a seven acre tidal lake. Keys Cable notes itself as the first cable park in the world to offer full kiteboarding instruction with most cable operators being kiteboarding instructors themselves.The park’s independently controlled systems give the operator the ability to create a fully customized ride, with the fastest possible rate of progression due to the 1:1 rider:operator Ratio.

This is a must! It was a group of 5 of us, and everyone had a fear of not being able to get up. And man, they were awesome! The coaching really helped get up, and we all had a great time. We were there for 4 hours, and loved it. Would definitely go back. Ages ranged from my smallest... More

I took my brother to Keys Cable for his birthday. We were both first-timers at the sport, but we ended having a great time and feeling pretty confident about our next go at it. The folks running the cables were very nice (and positive) about getting us going. If you have the time, I'd definitely recommend getting a 2-hr pass.... More

My husband, 7 year old Son and I all had a marvelous time! We all got up on the board pretty quick with the help/coaching of the cable operator. Cudos!

I love Wakeboarding, kiteboarding and am a surfer from hawai'i, but have never had the opportunity to try a cable. The facility is exactly how it should be. The water is beautiful, the equipment is plentiful. My reason for 3 stars is: First of all, I paid a significant amount of money for a 2 hour session with another person.... More

This is not the experience we desire to provide at our park and we would like to extend our deepest apologies. Our staff are highly trained in both their ability to instruct wakeboarding and providing the highest quality customer service available to each and every person that comes through our park. We would love for your to return and ride... More

Great time riding the wake boards and touring the organic garden. Coaching on the wake boards was great and all of my kids (15 13 and 11 year olds) got up and had a blast. All of them also tried the jump which was one of the most memorable parts of our vacation.

Weren't sure what to expect and boy were we pleasantly surprised. It is so refreshing to find an adventure business that cares about your experience. Matt, Cheyenne and Co went above and beyond to make our first cable wakeboarding experience a great one. The integrity and passion Matt brings to this place is contagious! He is first and foremost an... More

This was one of the best family experiences we've ever had. One of my sons (13) is somewhat of a dare-devil, but my other (15) is more cautious...he wanted NOTHING to do with this so he made me go first...its so easy even for a 50 something. To make it more appealing I reserved private time and our instructor, Shai... More
