Keys Cable is a new watersports cable park where adventure sports enthusiasts and curious newcomers alike can safely and cost effectivelyparticipate in wakeboarding, wakeskating, waterskiing, kiteboarding and Stand Up Paddleboarding.Located on the ocean side at mile marker 59 on Grassy Key, Keys Cable has two 2-tower cable systems that are independently operated atop of a seven acre tidal lake. Keys Cable notes itself as the first cable park in the world to offer full kiteboarding instruction with most cable operators being kiteboarding instructors themselves.The park’s independently controlled systems give the operator the ability to create a fully customized ride, with the fastest possible rate of progression due to the 1:1 rider:operator Ratio.

Matt is a great instructor. He made it easy for me. I have great difficulty wake boarding behind the boat. But the cable made it easy. never fell - and I hit most of the turns - even the very first time I tried. It was a great experience. I'll be back.

We were staying nearby and popped in for a couple of hours. Seriously, this was a wicked good time. With kids aged 11 and 15 this was a perfect way to get everyone active in a safe and fun environment. The instructor was patient and encouraging and everyone was able to get up in the water and get around with... More

We went on 2 different days because lightning stopped the first session. The first instructor was amazing and enthusiastic. He would hoot and holler each time my kid got up. the second instructor on the second day was just phoning it in. I saw one instructor jump in the water with a student and be more hands on. I would... More

I'm a beginner, and I spent an hour working on some board skills here. It felt nice and safe. Jerry was super helpful and gave lots of pointers.

I've been to all wakeboarding places in FL. Keys Cable Park is by far the best one so far. The people there are all experienced boarders and give great advice. This place as opposed to others actually taught me how to wakeboard properly. My cable instructor was Michael! Great guy! I highly recommend! My 58 year old father was able... More

We had a great time here with the help of Michael (running the cable and giving great advice) and Matthew for fitting us in on short notice! We are boarders behind a boat and have never tried the cable park. It was so much fun!! Will definitely do it again and highly recommend to anyone who wants to try. Seems... More

Went with my wife who has limited snowboarding experience and my 6 year old son who has no board experience. She rocked it and he was able to stand up by the end of the 1 hour lesson. Highly encourage a private lesson as they were completely immersed with staff that was fully engaged. I couldn't recommend them higher!

I wish my husband would stop talking about his experience. But, it was totally awesome, and the kids had a blast, so I can't blame him. The staff was more than accommodating, super professional, and were great instructors. I can't say enough good things about our experience. You exceeded our expectations and left us with some great memories. We are... More

I took five 14 year olds for a birthday who have little wake board experience. This was a great introduction to wakeboarding. Its personalized,one at a time, with a coach teaching them what to do. They are professional and this will be a great memory. We are boaters but the cable park was pure fun and much easier than dealing... More
