Traveling with your little ones comes with its perks and privileges. While there might be certain downsides if your kid is small, you can always engage with them in fun and interactive activities. All you need to do is stay “unplugged’ and “actually’ put in some efforts to bond with your child. In case you’re muddled with the multitude of options- here are some fun activities your kids will love!
Snorkeling at the Grand Cayman Island
Located in Georgetown, Grand Cayman Island is one of the best places to travel with your kids. The island comes with a wide range of options for snorkeling, particularly in Stingray city. If your kid is fond of swimming or staying underwater, this is an excellent activity to try out with them. As they dive amidst the water, they’ll get a chance to pet and swim with these stingrays. The waters are pretty safe as the river itself is quite shallow. Going by the ancient folklore, it is of immense good luck to kiss a stingray. Share this story with your little ones to get them even more excited about the trip.
In case you’re looking for other shallow dives, try heading to the area which is perfect for the Junior Open Water Divers. These include the underwater USS Kittiwake and a completely sunken rescue ship from the Navy which is widely popular for recovering the space shuttle Challenger debris. If your kids are observant enough, they’ll catch a glimpse of the blue iguanas while snorkeling around this area. You can also try paddle-boarding or take a trip on the authentic pirate ships available in this location.
Scuba Diving at the Wakatobi Dive Resorts
