Question Paddleboarding at CSR with alligators?

The Marina at CSR seems to have limited water activities per Buzz 2001 web-site.

It says" The marina is now operating featuring Sammy Duvall's Watersports. You can try paddleboarding or wakeboard/tubing behind a jet ski...."

If you watch the video - you see guests on the lake on a paddle-board, looks like a modified surf-board, with a long paddle. moving around the lake, even near high water-grass, where alligators like to hide.

Why do a paddle-board - where you could loose your balance and fall into the lake where there is no swimming allowed because of alligators and maybe bacteria ?

Bacteria that can kill you (forget the name) is usually found at the bottom of the lake so when you're wakeboarding and whatnot that's really not a problem. The gators Disney tries their best to keep out of guest areas and I trust they can keep their prescense to a minimum if they're putting guests in the water

Wouldn't be something I'd want to do. A couple? of years back someone posted pics of small gators at CSR!

I wish the CSR marina rented the normal little speed boats or even row boats

CSR is Coronado Spring? I never knew they offered wakeboarding and tubing. I also didn't know they didn't have the little speedboats. The things you learn by reading these forums.
