SEE DOLPHINS

Treat the kids to the chance to see dolphins and make memories that last a lifetime. Start with a RIB trip to far flung islands and reefs off Jersey’s coast and look out for wild dolphins that often swim alongside the boat, leaping in its wake. It’s an unforgettable experience however old you are. Try Jersey Seafaris for RIB trips with the chance to rub shoulders with wildlife.

CLIMB CASTLES

Make history hands-on and give the kids the chance to be the king of the castle at one of Jersey’s three castles. From medieval Mont Orgueil with its gory past to Sir Francis Drake’s Elizabeth Castle and the castle ruins at Grosnez, put the adventure back into a history lesson with a journey through Jersey’s past.
