Weather permitting, all guests ages eight and up who have special needs will have the unique opportunity to water ski, sail, kayak and paddleboard with special equipment and instructors at no charge. Up to 4 immediate family members and caregivers are also welcome to accompany guests who are participating and can enjoy free admission to Palm Beach.
