Fun TradeWinds Activities for all ages

The fun at TradeWinds Resorts doesn’t stop at the floating water park and ginormous waterslide.  With both the Island Grand Resort and Guy Harvey Outpost only steps from each other, the fun never stops.  Relax on a hammock as the kids get some mechanical surfing in at Guy Harvey Outpost, and be sure to stop by for some s’mores at night.  Then jump for joy on the trampolines, take a relaxing paddle boat ride, or hang by one of the pools at Island Grand Resort.  Also, make sure you stop and take a ride on Bucky on your way down to the ocean!  This mechanical hammerhead is a blast to ride, so jump on and see who can stay on the longest.
