“What a Show!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This group of volunteer water skiers put on a fabulous FREE show for the audience, which filled the bleachers to capacity. The skiers ranged in age from 4 years, to adult. Most of the flips, boat-o's, pyramids and other beautifully executed stunts were performed by teens - absolutely amazing! Their dedication to this sport showed in the enthusiastic and professional approach to pleasing the audience. We enjoyed the humorous interaction with the emcee and the skiers because they drew us in and made us feel welcomed. This is one show you don't want to miss while you are visiting Sarasota. There is one performance on Sundays so get there early for a seat. Their facility is located near Mote Marine. The group is totally voluntary and as I mentioned, the show is free; but take some cash for the donation bucket to show your appreciation for all the hard work that makes this show happen.

“My 4th time watching the waterski show!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Everytime we go to this free show, it is different! My relatives that range from 2 - 80 just love every second! This week we got to see a black lab water ski and the skiiers did a flip over the announcer! Great fun, always a surprise twist in the show!

“awsome fun family show and it is free”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This group put on an amazing show, as good or better than any of the professional shows I have seen at Sea World. It is free and a beautiful setting. I would recomend it.
It is a little hard to find. The show is located behind the Mote Marine, through a rickety metal fence. But do not let that deter you, it is really fun to watch.
