Area Excursions

Discover the Best of Tampa Bay

Venture out from the resort and explore! From romantic sunset sailing cruises to fishing charters ranging from half day to overnight, you’ll find a wealth of adventures within minutes.


Excursions departing directly from the beach at TradeWinds Island Grand include shelling and dolphin watch cruises. Encounter dolphins in the wild on this dolphin-watch certified cruise, then stop off at the Shell Key Preserve for some shelling, a family-favorite hunt for shells. Or adventure out on a snorkeling trip to historic Egmont Key. To reserve your spot, call Adventure Cruises at 727.492.4502.


If you want to sail through the sky, then parasailing is for you. Sun Sports offers parasailing rides, banana boat rides, and wave runner rentals, located directly on our beach. Visit the Sun Sports tiki hut by Island Grand's shoreline for availability and pricing.
