I broke my nose due to an accident caused by reckless driving of the boat while I was tubing. I tried to follow up with Tim Smith the manager, but he ignored dozens of my phone calls and emails so as to avoid being held liable for the accident. Dishonest management and horrible customer service.

My husband and I crossed para-sailing off our bucket lists at Sammy Duvall's a couple days before our wedding. The staff was very friendly and explained exactly what to do both when going up and coming down. I had no nervousness at all before going up (though, once I did get up, I was a bit scared)! I probably won't... More

Who needs a water park when the real thing gives you all the thrills without chorine. As a water family we have been boating, swimming, diving, kayaking and love everything with water. So a chance to fly above the Disney area lakes in a parasail was one for the records. All the kids loved it and as a Mom its... More

We went through Sammy Duvall's to do water skiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, and tubing in 2011 and again in 2012. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. They charge by the hour per boat, up to 5 people per boat. We departed from the Contemporary Resort and were taken out onto Bay Lake. I recommend that you go in the morning... More

The staff at the desk were extremely helpful and patient as I had to reschedule due to weather and transportation issues within Disney. The two crew members that took us... More
