For thrill-seekers looking to just let go with more action-packed endeavors, get ready to make St. Pete Beach your playground! Whether you’re ready to reach new heights with a JetLev ride, take a spin on a shark, or slide into a big splash - adventurers can dive into all sorts of activities head first!
TradeWinds has plenty of exhilarating activities right on the beach and the Gulf of Mexico for even the littlest beachgoers! Plunging down the 3-story tall High Tide Slide is a must for any beach-goer. With four shoots to choose from, every trip down is different!
Another kids’ favorite is the Floating Water Park, consisting of 15,750 square-feet of fun. This aquatic playground is open seasonally and floats right on top of the Gulf. Stand-up paddleboards are available to rent and a great way to get out and explore the shoreline too. Little ones looking for even more attractions can experience a wild ride on Bucky the mechanical shark and hang ten on the inflatable Surf WipeOut.
If their big thrill is getting creative, they can let their imaginations run wild with specialized camps at our KONK Club (Kids Only, No Kidding!) like Princesses and Pirates.
If your best vacation with teens has to be full of chills AND thrills, TradeWinds Island Resorts is home to plenty of exhilarating undertakings! They can go big by catching major air from the comfortable seats beneath our expansive parasail. Banana boats are another great way to bring the whole family together for one wild ride. For those not in the know, banana boats are exactly what they sound like, a long raft that allows you to load up your group and get ready to bounce along the surf of St. Pete Beach! While your teen can’t man the helm, renting a wave runner is another great way to put your foot on the gas when it comes to beach fun. Let them hold on for dear life as you skirt the surface of the gulf for one salt-splashed ride!
Big kids 18 and up are welcome to take on all of the above, plus the newest TradeWinds water sport toy – the JetLev! This futuristic form of transport allows the user to blast off using a water-fueled jet pack. After completing a quick training course, your teenager is sure to look and feel like a super-hero literally flying over the coast in 3D movement powered only by a high speed super charged engine.
