Boating and Watersports
Sylvan Lake's freshwater Lake makes it ideal for boating, sailing, and all types of watersports! A true boater's paradise.
spend the day on the water
You can’t beat boating for a quintessential Sylvan Lake activity. Boating and water sports are especially popular on the lake for its depth and calm. From fishing boats to motor boats, and sail boats to even houseboats, Sylvan Lake is perfect for cruising and enjoying a day out on the water.
For families and beginners, tubing and knee-boarding are great beginner and group boating activities! Where waterskiing and wakeboarding used to make up most high-power watersports, wake surfing has become one of the most popular activities.
While Alberta doesn’t have Hawaii’s North Shore pipeline to surf, we make our own waves! Wake surfing is the in-land version of regular surfing. Using boats with ballast systems, the boats create powerful waves for surfers to surf hands-free on the wave of the wake created behind the motor boat.
For more chill days on the lake, houseboats and pontoon boats can often be spotted floating lazily. These flat-deck boats are perfect for a little sun tanning and group gatherings.
Zoom across the lake by jet-ski or hone your skills at a watersport! Sylvan Lake is the perfect place for it.
RENT EQUIPMENT: Tubes, wakeboards, waterskis and more can be rented at The Launch from the Boat & Brew.
