Make your family trip to Orlando so much more than just visiting the theme parks. Thanks to new vacation bundles from luxury hotels in Orlando, available as of Sept. 1, you can enjoy exclusive boating experiences during your trip.


The bundles come courtesy of a partnership between Grande Lakes Orlando — a 500-acre resort encompassing both The Ritz-Carlton Orlando and JW Marriott Orlando — and Coastal Wake, a wake sport charter tour provider. Now, guests at the resort can book half-day and full-day experiences, with wakeboarding, wake surfing, tubing and more available as their captain drives them to and from the resort property, as well as around the area waterways. You can even tack on a photography package and a lunch.


Beyond just booking these experiences during their stays, guests can also bundle together their stays and boating experiences when they book either the Grande Escape or Family Escape bundles. The Grande Escape bundle also includes overnight accommodations, daily resort credits and valet parking. The Family Escape bundle includes connecting rooms and late checkout. To book either, use promotional codes D3Q (Grande Escape) or MAJ (Family Escape) when booking.


Separate from bundles, Coastal Wake experiences at Grande Lakes Orlando start at $450 per hour for up to 10 people, inclusive of captain services and wake boarding or surfing coaching, as well as use of all equipment.
