    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 know someone else has to have thought "Just take a bunch of alarm clocks with you"

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

    This bacteria is also found in lakes up North. A boy died in MN just last year at a swimming lake.

    Now alligators on the other hand.... :scared1:

    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.
