ACQUALINA RESORT & SPA ON THE BEACH
Acqualina Resort & Spa Launches Sea Turtle Outreach Program for the Summer
Five Star, Five Diamond Florida Resort Offers New Family-Friendly, Educational Program Led by EcoAdventures
SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FL – In honor of this summer marking South Florida’s sea turtle hatching season, five-star Acqualina Resort & Spa will launch a brand new, hands-on sea turtle outreach program for guests staying at the luxury property looking for a unique, immersive experience for the whole family.
In partnership with EcoAdventures at Miami Dade Parks, Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach will offer guests and residents the opportunity to discover the patterns of the fascinating ancient sea creatures in a beautiful aquatic environment. As a nature expert from EcoAdventures guides an interactive, educational presentation, participants will journey into the world of sea turtles.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about each of the sea turtle species, their life cycle, what they eat, where they are found, and how they arrive to Acqualina’s shore. Sea turtle artifacts such as shells, skulls and preserved turtles will be used for children to take part in the hands-on presentation. If there is a nest close by the hotel, the Ecoadventures team will conduct the presentation right next to the nest to see the baby turtles in their own natural habitat.
Our Miami Beach Resort takes pride in creating a hospitable environment for turtle nests by reducing night-time light pollution and supporting healthy dunes. For the past years, several sea turtle nests have called Acqualina home, giving the opportunity for guests to see “nature in action.”
The Sea Turtle Outreach Program will be offered Saturday, June 6 and Saturday June 20, 2015, and every Friday during the months of July and August 2015, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. The activities will take place on the Great Lawn or by the sea turtle nest if accessible. Junior hotel guests and residents ages 14 or under attending the program must have adult supervision. The program is complimentary for hotel guests and $10 for Acqualina Residents.
In addition to this new program, children ages 5-12 staying at our luxury resort in Miami will have complimentary access to all of the marine-bio-inspired AcquaMarine activities; a staple at the family-friendly resort. Children will learn about whales, sea turtles, sharks and rays, penguins and pinnipeds, waves and tsunamis, Coast Guards and water safety, and coral reefs. In addition to AcquaMarine’s designated programs, kids also enjoy the state-of-the-art, 500-square-foot children’s room, complete with a computer center, video games, toys, microscopes and movies. Here, kids are invited to participate in arts and crafts, outdoor games, scrap-booking and other seasonally planned activities.
Acqualina Resort & Spa is located at 17875 Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. For more information, please visit www.acqualinaresort.com
