This is so much fun to watch. It reminds me of when I was a kid and these shows were more common. Now it is very rare to see this on anywhere. Love it! Thank you!!!

This ski show is a throw back to Old Florida entertainment. the skiers are talented and range in age from 4 years old to 60. The show is fast-paced and very professional. There is no admission and parking is free. If sitting in or climbing bleachers is uncomfortable, there is plenty of room for you to take your own chair... More

Yes, they ask for donations but they show is awesome! And worth it...if you think it is. Live PA announcer, fast boats, daring stuns it is a must if you visit Mote or the SOS.

Free and fun ski show! These kids have talent! It's easy to get to, plenty of parking and free. The show we went to was a Sunday practice. It was quite crowded and seating is tight. Bring your own chairs, not much shade don't forget your sunblock!

What a privilege to enjoy this show - every Sunday afternoon at 2:00pm - FREE. Take a lawn chair or get there early enough to find a seat in the stands. These skiers are skilled and SO entertaining. You will be glad you went...even if you don't have kids!

What a blessing to have this available in Sarasota! The stunts are amazing and the view of the bay WOW . Excellent way to spend the afternoon. Snacks and non alcoholic beverages are available for purchase and we were told proceeds go to fund SkiARees. Go see a show you will be glad you did.

This free waterski show is a fun thing to do on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Do bring sunscreen as you are sitting in the sun for an hour!. The kids are talented and energetic and put on a great show. Right at the Mote aquarium, so check that out as well. Though the show is free - bring a few... More

Great find for a 2:00 FREE show on a Sunday afternoon. We did donate cash. Next time we want to watch from the water. It is one hour. You do watch from the sun so bring sunscreen, sunglasses, umbrella, etc
