My husband and I skied with Wes 3 times in 3 days; He has a really nice boat, pristine equipment, and best of all, is always willing to go out. His spotters even take pictures. The last day we wake surfed for the first time, which was fun too. Can't wait to come back next year!

This was our 2nd and 3rd time out with Wes and ADK Aquatics. Last year, for our 1st time, we just went tubing. This year Wes taught our entire family (Mom, Dad and 2 boys ages 12 & 10) how to water ski. I'm absolutely amazed at how quickly we were all able to get up on skis. Wes gave... More

Wes and his crew were amazing! We had so much fun, and they were so patient and kind, teaching our two children to water-ski. Our son and daughter are young, but were begging us to try water-skiing. We figured it was worth a try. Both kids left the boat with hearts full and great confidence! The boat is beautiful, we... More

Our time on the boat with Wes and Alexis was the highlight of our Lake Placid trip for my kids (16, 13, 11). They got to ski, wakeboard and tube until they were worn out! My husband and I got to sit back and relax while Wes patiently taught our kids to ski and wakeboard. The boat and equipment was... More

Absolutely a fantastic company. Took our three year old grandson for a " speed boat " ride for his birthday. Could not of been better, kids are still talking about it. Was also great for the adults. Learned a lot about Lake Placid. Can't wait to go again next year, going to try tubing and water skiing. Trust me, you... More

Thank You so much for the kind words! It was a pleasure to meet all of you the other day. I am so happy to have been able to introduce boating to your 3 year old grandson. Obviously my life would be very different if I hadn't been exposed to boating and water sports at a young age. Thanks again... More

Owner Wes & employees couldn't have been better. If debating between bobsled run at more than $200 for 4 people on a 49 second ride or spending an hour tubing on Lake Placid for $185, it's a no-brainer.

Easy to book, excellent instruction from two really nice, friendly guys (Wes and Jeremy). A perfect first go at wake boarding for my 16 and 18 year old sons. Photos provided too.
