Our 9 year-old daughter recently participated in one of the 1/2 day programs at the South Seas Island Resort and had an absolutely fabulous time! This is so much better than your typical resort camp-like experience. They went out in canoes and rounded up Seahorses near the shore. They found two actual seahorses (very tiny) as well as lots of gastropods and other sea creatures. It was very educational...and lots of fun!
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Even if you aren't able to take advantage of one of the classes, you should definitely stop by to see what they have in their tanks and to visit Amy (the tortoise who wanders freely around the school).
There is a fee for this of around $55/half day. We felt it was well worth it as this was one of the highlights of our 10 day stay at the resort!
