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

Was planning on some Kiteboard instructions, but wind did not cooperate. Reluctantly took kids to cable park expecting to be underwhelmed. We absolutely loved it, and we will do again. Staff exceptionally friendly and encouraging. Private rental worth the money. Instruction great. Looking forward to next ride!

My family has lived and visited Marathon for 20+ years. It's always a challenge to find a "real" adventure. Well that happened this year at the Keys cable park. The great guys that we met made our family feel welcome and with no prior experience my two teenage kids were able to have the time of their lives! What a... More

Awesome time. The entire crew was wonderful. Very kid friendly. We had an hour of time for our 9, 12, 13, and 38 year old. The crew was patient and extremely encouraging with all the kids. They were prompt with our appointment and spent the needed time with kids learning to ride. Well worth the money. We all enjoyed the... More

Had a great 1.5 hours at this place! Cheyenne taught both my kids to wake board in just a few minutes each. They have a beginner cable and another on the other side of the lake that is for more advanced boarders. After a few tips and attempts they were up getting towed up and down the course. They even...

Great place. Staff is friendly, very helpful and good at what they do. Fun and relaxing place to spend an hour getting better at riding the board and preparing for Kite Surfing. Great way to spend the morning or afternoon if the wind isn't blowing hard enough to kite. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn or get better... More
