Watersports Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Time on the boat is yours to choose the activities you’d like to focus on. We offer waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, tubing, kneeboarding & bodyboarding. Even if you are new to watersports we can help come up with a plan at the beginning of your outing and show you the ropes. We have had children as young as 5 bodyboarding and grandparents in their 70s on waterskis!
Absolutely not, we understand that some people may prefer to ride in the boat as opposed to being in the water and thats perfectly fine. Boat time is yours to use as you wish!
No! We charge a flat rate of $240 per hour for these outings which includes everything such as fuel, equipment, captain & instruction. You can have up to 8 guests on the boat plus we will have 2 crew members onboard to help out and show you a great day on the lake. If you have a group larger than 8 feel free to reach out and we can help come up with some options for you.
We have water onboard for guests however you are welcome to bring non- alcoholic beverages (our insurance does not let us have alcohol on our boats) and boat friendly foods as well. When we say boat friendly think grapes, wraps, trail mix, granola bars, etc. as opposed to Cheetos, messy bbq sandwiches and other crunchy snacks that tend to leave crumbs everywhere.

My first recommendation for any boat day is to always bring sunscreen, a towel and a sweatshirt. The sun can be strong and the wind can also make it feel chilly out on the water. Past that feel free to bring a camera, some snacks and a hat if you’d like.

Kids Camp Frequently Asked Questions

Our kids camp program was created to focus on watersports, boating & living the lakelife. We understand that at most traditional camps waterskiing & watersports are most popular activities that kids choose however spots are usually very limited and campers are only given 3 chances to get up on skis or a wakeboard. Here at Connecticut Watersports, we wanted to change that and our kids camp program has been the answer. Regardless of ability level children ages 8-14 are welcome to join us for top notch instruction with no more than 5 other campers in the boat plus 2 of our crew. We want campers to progress their skills, make some friends and enjoy what being on the lake is all about, having fun!
Each camper will get 2 sets (about 15 min each) for their watersports of choice plus at the end everyone can go tubing. Even though 15min sets may not sound like much, watersports are fatiguing and from experience we feel that this is the right amount of time. We also have a couple quick swim breaks, especially when it’s really warm out.
Yes! This is what it’s all about. Even if it’s not your turn behind the boat, campers are still on the boat hanging out with friends, cheering each other on and having a good time. Can you keep siblings, friends, etc. on the same boat? We will work with you to do our best on this and usually we can accommodate all requests however there are no guarantees since each boat only has 6 campers. When your booking please make all requests in the notes section and usually we can accommodate this without a problem.
You’ll be fine! What better way to meet people than out on the boat and away from your phone. Being on the lake is all about hanging out and having a good time in a safe and fun enviorment. No matter your age or ability level, camp is a great place improve your skills or learn a watersport for the first time.
