Water Skiing

Water Ski on some of the Lowcountry's finest waters. Join us on a water ski focused outing, or add it along with other activities to create a custom adventure.

No experience is necessary. Live Oac's water ski instructors (USCG licensed captains) will guide you through the learning experience with a patient and helpful attitude.

Our access to multiple locations suitable for water skiing means we can offer programs regardless of time of day, tide, and even in various wind directions. It is important to note the close proximity we have to ski areas. That means you'll spend more time skiing and less time getting there and back. You'll have about as much ski time on our 2 hour ski trip as with "comparable" 3 hour trips departing elsewhere.
New to Waterskiing? Try the new ZUP Board™. It's a fast and easy new way to enjoy watersports.

*A Note On Timing and Capacity:

Watersports outings can accommodate up to 6 passengers per boat, but depending on duration, not all passengers will be able to participate on the water.

Our usual ski area is just under 15 minutes from the dock, so a 1 Hour trip offers about 30 minutes in the ski area, which is about enough time for one first-timer to learn to ski, or maybe a couple experienced skiers to get a run in. We can still take 6 people on board, but we won't be able to have 6 people skiing, obviously. A 2 Hour trip adds 60 minutes in the ski area, for a total 90 minutes, and essentially TRIPLES your ski time. Please consider the added value of a 2 hour trip if you have 2-4 skiers.

Also, we often find that people want to try other activities, such as Tubing. A longer trip gives you more opportunity. Our 3 hour trip is the most popular, with up to 2.5 hours actually in the watersports area. Some folks want to take a few minutes out to see dolphin along the way. The time is yours to use how you see fit, and there are no additional charges for things such as Wakeboarding, Kneeboarding, Tubing, or Dolphin Watching.
