Kayaking & Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Imagine being surrounded by nothing but tranquil waters and pristine landscapes, far away from the crowds, cars and technology. There are plenty of places to rent a kayak, canoe or SUP. Take a guided tour or explore the waterways on your own.

Waverunners and Jet Skis

If you are looking for an exciting day on the water, you can find waverunners and jet ski rentals around Lake Anna. Let the breeze blow through your hair as you hit speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Choose from one-, two- or three-person jet skis to take out into the open lake for some serious fun!   

Watersports on Lake Anna


Make a splash when you attach an innertube to your boat for tubing on Lake Anna. Innertubes come in different sizes, so you can fit more than one person and go for a ride with friends and family. This is one of the easiest watersports to try. All you have to do is let the boat driver know how fast you want to go and hang on tight for a fun ride across the water.


Exercise persistent balance as you take on waves while your feet are bound to a board. Wakeboarding is a sport that involves a person being pulled by a boat while gliding through the water on a short, but wide, board. When you do master your balance, you can perform tricks such as an airborne, 180-degree turn.
