Cable Park Wakeboarding

Perfect for beginners! The cable park at Deerhurst Resort features a System 2.0 Cable which is powered by a small electric motor that pulls wakeboarders and waterskiers back and forth across Sunset Bay with a continuous ride.  This system makes learning to wakeboard and waterski easy and playful. The upwards pull enables effortless starts and has proven to provide a steep learning curve for beginners. With its continuous ride and strong tension it also allows advanced riders to progress water tricks or improve their rail-riding skills rapidly. Typical bookings on the cable have participants scheduled for 10-minute rides on the cable.  Although it sounds short, this is plenty of time on the water.  It is enough time for someone to get the hang of riding on the system as well enough time to tire the average participant out. Lessons are booked in and completed on the dock before the scheduled time on the water.  

NEW! –Cable Park Water Tubing

In addition to wakeboarders and waterskiers you can now try water tubing!


  • 1 run on cable – $40
  • Lesson on cable – $45
  • Double run on cable – $70
