Portofino Beach Bonanza 10.31.2010

What fun the Portofino Beach Bonanza was!  Five exciting obstacles where you would collect a poker card once you completed the obstacle before moving onto the next one… at the end of the run the person with the best poker hand won a 2 night stay at Portofino Island Resort!!  Take a look and see for yourself, and mark your calendars for next year and come on out to the Portofino Beach Bonanza Run where you will get wet, sandy, meet new friends and win some great prizes!

Great day to snorkel for seashells

Portofino kids having fun “in the sand”

Did you know, Sea Oats help form and stabilize dunes, which in turn block the salt spray and allow less salt-tolerant plants to grow in habitats behind the dunes.

We offer bicycle rentals for all ages… today is a great day to explore the Gulf Islands National Seashore by bike.

Fall is a beautiful season to visit Portofino Island.  The weather is perfect! 

Skydive Portofino

Another great day for a sky diving adventure!

Two Portofino Island guests took the “jump” on Friday September 24, 2010 and made a picture perfect landing on our sandy white beaches.

one… two… three…  JUMP!

What an amazing view!

Complimentary celebratory drink at landing

 Who’s next?


Amy is the name to know. She is our CUSTOMIZED VACATION planner, and puts our guests hands in the hands of those helping to make your stay with us all the more memorable.

This weekend I had the luxury of flying up with her and CAPTAIN JIMBO along with his tandum sky diving crew for a jump over the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Although we were all a little nervous, (ok…ALOT nervous) we had a great time and Amy had what Captain Jimbo said was “a jump straight from the books”, meaning perfect!

Only question is…WHO’S NEXT?
