My friend and I were looking to do Some tubing on lake placid. I was told about ADK Aquatics by someone at a local ski shop. When we met up with the guys we got a glimpse of their beautiful boat and knew it would be a good couple of hours. The best part was that my friend and I... More

We had a great waterskiing and tubing experience with Wes of ADK Aquatics. Both Wes and his associate, Jeremy, did a great job with the water skiing instruction and they made the tubing a lot of fun. Having both a driver and spotter (rather than one person taking care of both jobs) made a big difference to the experience. We... More

Our water skiing and tubing trip with ADK Aquatics was the highlight of our trip! Wes and Bob-o were very accommodating and informative about the sights as we cruised the lake. Wes gave both my husband and 13 year old some refresher instruction and both were up skiing by their second try. Wes even convinced my reluctant 5 year old... More

Wes is an excellent instructor. He was able to have our 13 year old daughter, who had never water skied before, up and skiing on our first trip out. Wes was very patient with her, very encouraging.and was able to offer feedback to her on exactly what she needed to adjust with each try until she was able to get... More

Yes, you can rent a boat to take out on Lake Placid but when you don't know the lake it can be a little daunting. ADK Aquatics will take you out and give you a tour along with taking you tubing, waterskiing or wakeboarding/wakesurfing. We only did tubing but it was so incredibly FUN!!! Wes drove the boat and Jeremy... More

Wes and his team were fantastic. Great with our kids (12,15). We will be wake boarding with ADK every visit to Lake Placid.

First class all the way. Wes and his team did an unbelievable job with our kids, 12 and 10 and 1st time skiers. Wes had them both up and skiing within 20 minutes after a quick run thru on the dock. If you have young kids who have never been on skis I couldn't imagine anyone else doing a better... More

Wes and his team are friendly instructors and provide a totally professional and outstanding experience. We had a group of beginners and the ADK team was absolutely wonderful in taking us from first principles to actually get up and skiing. The equipment and boat are top notch as is the instructional quality, which provides a balance of encouragement, technical demonstration... More

"Fabulous!!!" That is what we left saying. ADK is awesome! My two boys (ages 8 and 11) had the time of their lives wake boarding and tubing. I am truly so thankful for the time and patience Wes took with each of them. There was also lots of encouragement and praise along the way too!!! ADK spares no expense to... More

Everything about our experience with ADK Aquatics was first class. From the brand new Ski Nautique boat, the wide range of new water equipment, to the owner (Wes) and his assistant (Bob) who were very friendly and knowledgeable about every activity they had to offer. Bob also took great pictures of us on the water and emailed them to us... More
