Ready to get pulses racing? Face the terrifying Dino Trail at Tamba Park, drive your own mini powerboats on the lake, see birds of prey up close and let off steam in the indoor and outdoor play areas - kids of all ages will love this diverse and exciting activity park.
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.
Make history hands-on and give the kids the chance to be the king of the castle at one of Jersey’s three castles.
