Where can you find sugar sand beaches, fine dining, edutainment and adventure all in one Spring Break?
I’ll tell you.. the Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas!
One of my ultimate favorite places (and just a quick plane ride away - thank you Delta Airlines). There are activities to satisfy every type of traveler in your household - whether you want to get lost or just be found, you won’t be disappointed. Here are a few highlights to make your trip more enjoyable. Safe Travels!!
SNORKEL THE RUINS
Calling all snorkel dorks! This thrilling 60-minute program includes an amazing 30-minute snorkeling adventure amid the sunken ruins and artifacts of the lost city of Atlantis. Home to more than 20,000 deep-reef and pelagic fish, rays, and sharks this 2.7 million-gallon marine exhibit is a super exciting hands-on experience. As a side note… I was not able to locate Jason Momoa (Aquaman). Better luck next time I suppose!
DOLPHINS & SEA LIONS
Love and Learn! When trying to describe spending time in the water with Sea Lions or Dolphins, there are a few words that quickly come to mind: wet, silly, goofy, and crazy fun. Kinda like us huh? Visiting the dolphins in their environment, you will have the chance to develop a once-in-a-lifetime, face-to-face connection. The Playtime with Sea Lions experience is also an opportunity for fun. We had a blast with these amazing sea mammals by playing, swimming, and and making crazy faces with them.
