In celebration of the Fodor’s Choice Gold Award as one of the Best Hotels for Kids and Families in the United States, Acqualina has now made it’s children’s marine biology inspired program, AcquaMarine available to hotel guests on a complimentary basis.
AcquaMarine is designed and inspired with our ocean and all the sea life within. Children who sign-up for Aquamarine program will become campers and have fun with learning and discovering a new appreciation, love and respect for the sea through educational hands on activities. Campers will utilize computers and iPads to customize their learning experience within each theme. From sizing up whales on the beach to creating an edible coral polyp, campers are sure to have a blast all while learning about the deep blue sea. In addition to the marine biology based program campers will also engage in activities such as sports of sorts, art adventures, teambuilding activities and pool play. The program will offer supervised activities for children ages 5-12.
The program includes seven themes: Arctic Fish and Friends, the Colorful World of Reefs, Gentle Giants, Pinniped Pals, Predators of the Sea, Save the Sea, and Sea Turtles.

The children’s program is based out of the 500-square-foot Acquamarine center. The inspiration for the decor was to incorporate the elements of an underwater experience, combining the colors and textures found in the species of the coral reefs of the Caribbean.
