This sea life park is a great size for a family, especially with young children.   There are many fun things to see and do but it's not as overwhelmingly large as many of the popular mainland sea life attractions.  Dolphins perform at different times through the day.  There is a Reef Aquarium to see the sea life from above and below the water surface.  There is a Sea Bird Sanctuary where sea birds are rehabilitated.    Other areas include the Sea Turtle Lagoon, Penguin Habitat, and Sting Ray Lagoon.    
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-   The kids like the hands on area where they can touch starfish.  They also loved the dolphin performances (and begged to sit in the front so they could get splashed!).
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS-  Very pricey, especially for a large family.  Some areas inside require an additional fee.

COST:  $13 adults/ $5 children (age 4 - 11), $10 Seniors (age 62+).
HOURS:  Mon - Sat 10a - 2p
This outdoor museum depicts life on an early 1900s sugar plantation.    There is a mix of replicated and authentic restored buildings scattered across about 50 acres.  There are guided tours on each hour.    
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-   It was really interesting for the whole family to see the workings of a sugar plantation.    The tour moves at a good pace to keep interest.

Family Friendly Travel Tip:
Older children can use time in the car or airplane to learn a new craft.  There are some great books about learning to knit, crochet and cross-stitch.  Your child will be occupied and have a sense of accomplishment when they have completed a project by the end of the journey.
