We took the family to learn to waterski and do some tubing. Our captain was great and made sure everyone was safe and had a great time. One of the highlights of our trip to Orlando. Would definitely go back. Would only say that 1 hour was too short for everything we wanted to do (we were actually able to... More

My husband and I had a blast with our two children ages 11 and 15. We did two hours of water skiing and tubing . We paid to be picked up from the Grand Floridian where we were staying. Totally worth it and the boat ride there was beautiful. Our driver/ instructor Trent was knowledgable and friendly . He had... More

I went with 4 teens for an hour of tubing, wake and knee boarding. Our driver was terrific! Professional, experienced, and safety conscious. We had a fantastic hour. The boat driver had games and challenges going on between the kids on the 2 tubes, and they got competitive! It was awesome and the kids had a blast! The only downside... More

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

They no longer deal with isango and had received no payment but was happy to offer us a freebie rather than spoil our trip. Great time,... 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
