Water tourism is allowed on 8 lakes, from which lake Wigry is suitable for sailing. It is an ideal place for smaller sailing boats. Silence, natural landscape and still relatively small number of boats make the lake attractive for sailors. The lake has an interesting shape and diverse coastline. Changeable winds and numerous shallows can constitute difficulty for some sailors.
