Surftides Resort will have a caravan to transport hotel guests only to the Seafood and Wine Festival this year.  While you wait for the caravan, stop by our lobby on Friday and Saturday nights to enjoy our wine tasting.  We feature a variety of reds and whites and offer them for purchase by the bottle and case as well.  Finger foods are also offered during wine tasting along with our fresh baked cookies that are served daily for our guests that are checking in.  It is a great way to relax after a long drive to the beach!
