Hop aboard a paddleboat and explore the canals that meander around Tradewinds. The waterways are home to swans, Japanese Koi, turtles and a variety of herons and egrets. Fish feeding stations are located along the banks.

Not to be confused with paddleboats,  the stand-up paddleboards available for purchase, are the first choice for the more athletic guests. You can claim your paddleboard tickets online on an hourly basis. Visit the Tiki Hut on the beach behind TradeWinds Island Grand for a kayak on a first-come, first-served basis.
