Summer Water Sports Lessons
SWS provides private clinics at your dock as well as lessons at our ski schools, situated on some of Muskoka’s top resort properties. We recommend booking your lessons in advance.

Our highly skilled instructors are certified by Waterski and Wakeboard Canada (WWC), and receive practical First Aid and CPR training. Many of our top instructors have received their Level 2 Wakeboard Instruction through WWC, and some are Learning and Master facilitators, helping to shape the direction of teaching towed water sports in Canada.

If you sign up for a beginner ski or wakeboard lesson, we guarantee that you’ll get up or your money back! We also offer tubing and banana boat rides at all of our locations.

Your dock is full of guests and you’re entertaining and relaxing with your friends, but the kids won’t stop bugging you to take them skiing. No one wants to leave a party to do continual circles around the lake – except for us! We bring the boat, ski equipment and staff right to your dock. All you have to do is sit back with your cocktail and enjoy.

Cottage Clinics

We offer cottage clinics throughout the Muskoka area from spring to fall. Our clients are provided with a Mastercraft boat, a large selection of equipment from O’Brien and one or two of our world-class instructors. In addition to providing waterski and wakeboard instruction, our instructors are also qualified to teach safe boat driving for all watersport activities. Summer Water Sports can also supply you with Sea-Doos, inflatables, standup paddleboards, lifeguards and our famous flyboard.

Instructor Only Clinics

Perfect for skiers who prefer to ski behind their own boat, but are interested in improving on their skiing. Our staff will come to your cottage and provide skiers with world class driving and instruction.

Driving Instruction Clinics

Our famous waterski shows would be not possible without the expert skill level of our boat drivers. Learning to drive for waterskiers and wakeboards can be difficult to navigate alone. Our highly skilled boat drivers can come to your dock to teach you how to safely and skillfully drive waterski and wakeboard runs for all ages and skill levels. We can also teach you how to properly maneuver your boat around the lake and offer expert tips and tricks for docking your boat.
