Jumby Explorers

Jumby for families

Jumby Bay Island is a paradise for all ages, embracing fun and adventure even in its very name — the Antiguan word jumbee means "playful spirit." We aim to make every moment of your child's day magical at Jumby Bay, from kids' menus to kids' night-out activities and special events.

Jumby explorers

The Jumby Explorers program is designed to provide our younger guests with special services, amenities and convenience items just for them. We offer endless possibilities to explore our unique wildlife and natural surroundings (by bike, beach or water), as well as a vast mix of activities especially tailored for specific age groups.

Our young guests can enjoy the resort's swimming pools (under parental supervision), as well as complimentary watersports (including sailing, snorkeling and kayaking), and Jumby Bay's famed Hawksbill Turtle Program for Kids.

The Camp Jumby Pavilion is Jumby Bay's headquarters for fun, games and discovery. Our dedicated program for 3 to 11-year-olds provides a host of opportunities for outdoor excitement and creative expression, including Little Chefs, Wildlife and Ocean Adventures, Discover Science, Pirates of the Caribbean, Dance and Sing, and Day at the Beach.

Hawksbill turtle program

Jumby Explorers offers a unique opportunity for children to take an active part in the island's conservation efforts. Under the direction of specialist researchers, our young guests can experience a turtle nesting on Pasture Bay Beach, and participate in the release of hatchlings into the sea.

They can also "adopt" one of these endangered turtles and track its progress through the summer nesting season. Kids will receive an adoption certificate along with regular updates on their turtle's progress posted on Jumby Bay's Facebook page. While at the resort, they can learn more through interactive presentations, quizzes, arts, crafts and games that bring the hawksbill program to life.

Never too young to spa

The next generation of spa-goers can discover the joys of rest and relaxation with the Kiddies Spa Retreat Menu. The open-air spa, located steps from the beach, welcomes guests ages 12 and up with youth-centric treatments including a gentle Teen Massage, Funky Fingers & Twinkle Toes exfoliation, nail-shaping and polish, or a special Clear Start Teen Facial. Braiding and hair wraps are also available.

Activities priced accordingly

Encouraging the next generation

Jumby Bay's lineup of teen and youth activities is especially geared for more advanced discovery and experiences, where guests aged 12-17 can come together with others their own age — whether it's for mixed volleyball on the beach or a mocktail mixology class.

Every day, the resort offers a fun-packed lineup of diversions including paddleboard and water ski lessons; kayak discovery tours; tennis clinics; nighttime constellation explorations; and seasonal turtle walks with the resort's turtle team.

Activities priced accordingly.

Nannies and babysitting services

Jumby Bay offers personal nanny services for parents who may want a little downtime of their own. The service provides adult guests the freedom to enjoy activities such as massage, yoga, tennis, or a dinner for two while comfortably assured that their children are under the experienced care of one of the resort's nannies.
