The Sound is perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, parasailing and lots of other water sports. The resort offers lots of amenities, some for a small fee, including water trampoline, water taxi, dolphin cruises, and water toys. Short drive to theme parks, fashion outlets, and National Naval Aviation Museum. Situated next to Gulf Islands National Seashore, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
