Whale’s Tale Waterpark is very excited about our new surf simulator – AKUA BEACH. Akua is our first attraction where riders become more skillful with experience. All riders must have a signed Release of Liability (RoL) before use. Minors must have an RoL signed by a parent or legal guardian A RoL must be signed because this is a skill based ride, as skill increases the rider can assume greater risk.
Yes, we have restrooms with changing facilities and showers.
No, we do not rent towels. You are welcome to bring towels with you, or you can purchase towels at Breakers Surf Shop.
We are a participatory park and don’t have spectator areas, so everyone must pay our admission rate. Whales Tale is located on 17 beautiful acres, so there are plenty of places to relax, read a book or take nap. Infants are free. Adults 70 and over are only $9!
All our rides are engineered and built by various third party manufacturers. In the design process, ride restrictions are identified to keep everyone safe. Safety is everyones responsibility and ask that riders follow these limits.
