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

Ralph waiting patientlySome of our visitors enjoy local fishing trips. We have a small fleet of boats that will take you out for either a half or a full day. Or you can surf cast, right from the beach. But beware of Ralph, our resident blue heron. He knows what you fishermen have in your coolers and if you aren't careful, he'll take your catch off your hands and make a quick getaway!

Two dolphins surfing the wakeAnd 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.
