The Ski-A-Rees Water Ski Show is a free event put on every Sunday from Mid February to early May. It may be free but there is no lack of professionalism and talent of the mostly young skiers. The event lasts a little over an hour. It started on time and moved quickly from event to event. There were three sets... 更多
We paired the Ski-A-Rees with a visit to Mote Aquarium. The show was fantastic. Our family thoroughly enjoyed it. We packed a picnic lunch, found a shady tree, and ate while watching the fun. It is definitely on our list of things to do again.
This is a FREE attraction and one of the top ski shows in the United States. A great time for all ages. There are rest rooms and a snack shop. These folks build pyramids, jump over a ski jump with acrobatic style. Highly recommended. Show changes regularly.
Found this next door when we visited the MOTE aquarium. This is a free event, run by an enthusiastic and skilled team of water skiers of all ages. There are staged seats available and a small shop selling drinks etc. The compare and backing music add to the spectacle of ski jumps, acrobatics and gymnastics on water. Donations are encouraged,... 更多
The whole family will love this show...within a 1/2 mile of the Longboat Key Club Resort. This a local club with children and young adults performing heart stopping acts on water skis.
Saw this attraction and since the price was right and within walking distance of St. Armand's, we checked it out. This is an organization of water skiing enthusiasts that could be likened to "Cypress Gardens Lite". Free admission to some basic bleachers but the cast was egnergetic and enjoyed performing. This is a good way to spend a lazy afternoon... 更多
Note: this show closes for the season after the performance on May 10th. An enjoyable time. The kids (mostly kids) are talented. As others have mentioned, it is free. They solicit donations to cover expenses. I wish I had taken a couple of beach blankets to provide cover because their is no shade. Definitely recommended.
We really enjoyed this ski show, we've seem tomy Barrett's in the Wisconsin dells & the old cypress gardens one but this is every bit as good! Free show, free parking and the "performers" are really good!! Costumes, music, well organized, just fun! They pass the hat to help with cost of gas and equipment so be prepared to donate,... 更多
We stumbled upon this when reading through some visitor guides and so glad we did. We took chairs, our lunch/cooler and enjoyed a 75 minute show of jumps, barefoot skiers, pyramids, and ballet. There were even costume changes. There was a MC/music to add to the grandeur. This is free but donations are solicited. There is a concession stand and... 更多
