SWS offers private, tailored water ski and wakeboard clinics at our Ski School, operating out of Muskoka’s top resorts, and at docks across the region.

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.

Lessons at your dock

We’ve all been there—the dock is packed with guests and you’re entertaining friends, but the kids  won’t stop bugging you to take them skiing. We don’t blame them (waterskiing is the best!) but no one wants to leave a party to do circles around the lake…except we do! We’ll bring the boat, ski equipment and staff right to your dock. You and your guests can watch from the dock as you enjoy cocktails and company.

Cottage Clinics

We provide a Mastercraft boat, a large selection of O’Brien equipment and one or two of our world-class instructors. Our instructors are also qualified to teach safe boat operation for all watersport activities.


Perfect for skiers and wakeboarders who prefer to ski behind their own boat, but want to improve their skills. Our staff will come to your cottage and provide you with world class driving and instruction.

Driving Instruction

Learn how to safely and skillfully drive water ski and wakeboard runs for all ages and skill levels from our highly skilled drivers. We can also teach all aspects of pro boating, like maneuvering, docking and navigation.
