Our Boarder Pass Port Colborne cable wakeboard park is conveniently located in the heart of the Niagara Region right at the entrance of the Welland Canal, 20 minutes south of St. Catharines, 90 minutes from Toronto or 20 minutes from the Peace Bridge and Buffalo, NY. Here, people easily escape city life and connect with nature, without ever having to go too far from home.
No Boat? No Problem. With our "Sesitec System 2.0" cable system, we eliminate the need of a boat which opens up accessibility to wakeboarding for any community, while also having the added benefit of being environmentally sustainable.
Never tried wakeboarding? Our certified instructors will work with you to ensure you get up and riding on the water for your first visit. Make sure to ask about our BP Guarantee.
Looking to make a whole day out of your experience? In addition to the wakeboard cable park, Binbrook Conservation Area offers a beautiful swimming beach, picnic facilities, nature trails, SUP and kayak rentals, childrens splash pad, aqua park, and tree top trecking.
Boarder Pass Cable Wakeboard Parks was founded by a group of riders with a passion for water sports and a love of the outdoors. We have made it our mission to share our passion with communities across Canada, and bring the thrill of outdoor water sports to as many people as we can.
Boarder Pass opened in Sarnia, ON in 2010 and was Canada's first linear cable wakeboard park facility. In nine years we have added two additional Ontario locations: Hamilton and Port Colborne. Each location operates during the summer months, providing water sports services to people of all ages and abilities. In addition to our parks we have created a successful events side of the company where we provide unique action sports events to communities across Ontario, in both the winter and summer. In 2019, we have become the largest national company of our kind, having introduced over 30,000 people to the sport of cable wakeboarding.
why we do what we do...
Traditionally, the sport of wakeboarding and other outdoor water sports are inaccessible to a large portion of the Canadian population - they require expensive equipment, a powerboat, gas, insurance, and access to large bodies of water, and are typically reserved for lakeside communities and cottage regions, or for those who could afford to travel to these areas.
Our mission is to break down barriers of accessibility to wakeboarding and watersports
and continue to grow and progress these sports in Canada. We know that water sports can and should be as accessible as a local community soccer field or baseball diamond.
Our facilities not only eliminate the need for a boat and give access to outdoor water sports to any community, they are environmentally sustainable too. The introduction of a cable wakeboarding system has even shown to increase oxygen levels in the surrounding water!
We strategically build our outdoor water sport and adventure parks close to urban communities to ensure they become outdoor recreation hubs.
what exactly is a cable wakeboarding park?
Cable wakeboarding is very similar to boat wakeboarding, but rather than riders being pulled by a motorboat, they are pulled by a unique electric-powered cable system. Our state-of-the-art cable systems are designed by our industry partner Sesitec, and have revolutionized how accessible, affordable and enjoyable wakeboarding and waterskiing can be. With a Sesitec cable system, riders can experience a safe and controlled session in almost any size body of water.
