Family on a sunset cruise

We have many activities for you to choose from, here at the resort and in the surrounding area.

Some of our visitors enjoy deep-sea fishing trips. We have a small fleet of boats that will take you out for either a half or a full day. One of our most popular trips leaves late in the afternoon and stays out long enough to take in a beautiful Florida sunset on the way home. This is a very relaxing excursion that most guests of all ages really enjoy. Of course, you can also surf cast, right from the beach. Just be mindful of the clearly marked areas for surf casting to make sure you are far enough away from the swim beach to prevent "catching" one of our guests!

Two dolphins surfing the wake

And don’t forget our dolphin cruises. We have a unique approach — two boats speed along, side by side, about 50 yards apart. The dolphins love it because it generates a huge wake. You'll see them jumping right between the boats! You can arrange for tickets for fishing excursions or dolphin cruises at The Club House desk.

Come enjoy the best of both worlds, a secluded sandy beach populated with beautiful birds, yet a short drive down the road from world-class shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Bring a good book and leave your laptop at the office. You won't want to go home!
