A tropical retreat showcasing the best of three distinct islands, with fabulous resort hotels that will take your breath away.
Jack Sand was a television weatherman for 25 years on WDAY-TV, Fargo and WDAZ-TV, Grand Forks.
In the early years a magic trick was often part of his weather show. Many still ask Jack about Gwendolyn the Weather Duck who would "grade" the forecast. Jack hosted a number of local TV shows including Noonday, and the children's programs, Santa’s Toyland and The Magic Shop. Jack was TV spokesperson for Muscatell Automotive Group for 12 years, Country Hearth Bread for 16 years and he has appeared in hundreds of other TV commercials. Jack retired from television in 2004, but continues to perform his magic and comedy.
He has been a professional magician for over 40 years and has entertained thousands of children and adults with his magic and comedy. Every July and August Jack entertains at Jasper's Theater, Park Rapids, MN, in a two-hour show of music, magic and comedy.
Jack lives in Moorhead with his wife, Rochelle, where they enjoy spending time with their three grandchildren.
Jack and Rochelle have previously hosted several Holiday Vacations tours. They invite you to join them on this fabulous trip of a lifetime.

This vast gorge is a striking palette of red rock and emerald green vegetation formed millions of years ago from a collapsed volcano.
