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.

My boyfriend and I recently visited Keys Cable and had a wonderful time. I was able to do my first jump off a ramp and it felt incredible. After parking, it literally took us 10 minutes to get in the water and on the circuit. Tom Jones was an amazing instructor - friendly, encouraging and very helpful with offering tips... More

Visited for 2 hours w my three boys ages 8-12 and everyone had a blast. Marshal-Keys Cable provided excellent one on one instruction and encouragement. Highly recommend this adventure, appropriate for various age and skill levels. My 3 boys all have previous wake board experience from a boat, I consider all of them beginner to intermediate skill level and each... More

When you see this business from the highway, the cable park is what you see first and that's what draws you in. It's an excellent place to spend part of your day in the keys, as you can get the most out of your time in many ways. Firstly, you don't have to rent a boat to get the wakeboard... More

We reserved the beginner cable for one hour for 3 of us (ages 16, 21 and 57) who had never wakeboarded before, although one is an experienced snowboarder and skateboarder and one had done their kiteboarding cable lesson before. Jerry was great at getting us going and we all got up immediately. The two boys were hitting the kicker (small... More

The Keys are all about the water, right? When traveling without a boat [or too lazy to drop it in the water on the 'iffy' days] now there is a cool place to make some turns. We have been coming since they opened a few years ago and they just keep getting better and better. And if you want to... More

We had a two hour private session and I would highly recommend Keys Cable. The instruction was first class, our first timers were up wake boarding immediately, and the intermediates folks were also helped. All the people at Keys Cable were really friendly, knowledgeable and helpful Certainly go again
