The kids are out of school and summer is almost here! We know it is difficult to find a destination that the whole family can enjoy. It's especially difficult if you have children of all different ages. Your 6 year old is not going to want to do the same things as your 16 year old! Luckily, if you stay at Estate Zootenvaal, we have activities for all ages and can recommend things to do around the island that everyone can enjoy! For the youngsters: Kids love animals! Take them on a horse back ride on the beach or whale watching. You can also take them on a fishing trip! What better place to learn than the Caribbean!  For the tweens: We have plenty of outdoor activities for kids of all ages.  Children can go hiking, para sailing, or get a aerial tour of the island.  They can get a birds eye view of St. John and ride in a helicopter! For the teenage girls: Within minutes of Estate Zootenvaal you can enjoy shopping at the many colorful boutiques in the area. There are also multiple spas in the area for the girls to enjoy a spa day or simple get some sun on our private beach. For the teenage boys: Boys can enjoy many outdoor activities on the water with kayak rentals, dingy rentals, surfing, wind surfing and kite surfing.  Get them outside and be active! For the adults: Go on a scenic drive! St John has multiple lookout points that have stunning views of the ocean. If you want to explore the ocean instead of just looking at it, you can take sailing lessons.  Lessons are available on St. John and on St. Thomas, which is just a short ferry ride from St. John. Courses include different levels from basic to advanced. If you prefer, you can also go scuba diving and really explore the coral reefs in the area.
