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.

Went to this place looking for a camera for my motorcycle. Nate was excellent and helped me purchase the right equipment. Helped mount and show me how to use. Excellent service and hospitality.

We will definitely return to try this another day, and appreciate the warm welcome we received and the suggestions of other things to do in the area since the weather was not cooperating.

We've been going to Marathon, FL for Christmas/News Years and our top highlight for the last four years has been Keys Cable! Matt, Jerry, Scott and the crew were fantastic again. We love having the convenience and predictability of riding here and the friendliness and service of the staff is always great. Everyone accomplished something new and we'll be back!

Most fun I had with my kids in Florida! Authentic professional crew was a refreshing break from corny resort down the road. If you're into board sports don't miss this, especially if weather has you stuck on land

Did the Kiteboard course. Was great as I had never been on a board and if not for this course would have never been able to get up on a kiteboard afterwards.

Keys Cable was an awesome experience. The staff, especially Jerry, were great...and patient. My husband, myself, and two friends went and we could not stop talking about how awesome it was for the rest of the weekend!

If you are looking for your adrenaline fix in the keys, there's not much like this place! The crew taught me so much on a wakeboard and also in their cool organic garden with a huge range of tropical fruits and plants. My family, ranging from 4 to 48 years old all had a fantastic time and were all shredding... More

After our dive trips were canceled due to high winds we had to re-imagine our week stay in the Keys and luckily we found Keys Cable. We stopped by after passing by and Nate took the time to explain the different options available and was very flexible in scheduling our family. As there were three of us riding and none... More
