“wonderful experience”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

I have 3 kids: 11, 9 and 4. I was looking for something fun for the kids to do while we were in Fort Lauderdale. This camp was excellent! They had such and amazing time. It definately exceeded expectations. The staff was easy to deal with and attentive with the children. Safety was a priority when dealing with the water and activities. Thank you so much! I would recommend anyone to try. Thanks again...The Boomers

“Fun”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

We took 46 summer campers from St. Bonaventure school the kids ages ranged from 5 - 13. We had an amazing time. I highly recommend funky fish. It was very well organized. The kids snorkeled * skin boarded * and boogie boarded they even tie dyed tshirts The funky fish employees were very attentive to every child. They explained each activity and made sure the kids were all having fun in a safe environment Thanks guys. We Will definitely come back again

“The Finest Funky Fish Day”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Funky Fish Kid camp is a great camp in Fort Lauderdale.
I have 3 kids: 8 yrs. old boy and 6 yr. old and 4 yr. old girls.
They have never snorkeled before and had a great day at camp with Alex and Sarah (Camp counselors). We called several weeks prior to inquire about the program. Sarah, the owner, was prompt in responding to my messages and answered all my questions. Prior to arriving, I felt secure and assured that my children would be taken care of well. Once we arrived, there were 2 counselors to meet and greet us, including Sarah, the owner. They discussed the plans for the day and went over the rules. My children are very active children that were given a wonderful snorkeling opportunity.

“Good camp, terrible organization!”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

My daughter heard a lot about this camp and waited for it for a long time. I reserved all 5 days of our vacation 2 weeks before our trip, but never got the confirmation. Upon arrival I called to the camp and they could not tell me is it going to be the same day or other one - apparently they didn't have enough kids for the camp. Finally I got a phone call one hour later and came out the program is going to be at Bahia Mar, but not at Residence Inn by Marriott at Pompano Beach (we stayed close by). It took me 25 min and $25 to get there. Camp itself was really nice, my daughter really enjoined it. The next morning my daughter experienced a light fever so we decided not to go to the camp. I've made a phone call at 9:00 am (camp starts 10:00 -10:30) to tell them we are not coming. 4 days later a got the e-mail... They charged me for 2 days of camp, not for the only one my child attended (they took my credit card details). They told they got my message too late (after lunch), but I've noticed the parent of another child that we are not coming early morning.

“Funky Fish ~ Fort Lauderdale = AWESOME!!!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

We recently took a week long family vacation to Fort Lauderdale this past March 27 - April 3, 2013. We decided to stay at Bahia Mar for several reasons due to location (walk to everything, price, convenience, etc... it was a great choice...a lot of higher priced resorts were so overcrowded, etc,). Anyway, what also drew us to the Bahia Mar was the Funky Fish Kids Camp. Our family LOVED it!!! Sarah who runs the program...& her employees...we mostly had Alex, John, & Heather & the other camp counselors were FANTASTIC!!! Our kids are a 13 yr. old daughter & a 6 yr. old son who both equally enjoyed the camp very much...snorkling, skim boards, boogie boards, jewelry making, tie dyes, etc...they were either on the beach or at the hotel pool. The camp overall just has a really nice way about it...all children are made to feel very welcome & involved in a fun & educational atmosphere. My instincts told me that my kids were in very good hands while away from us. The time betwen 10 & 3 was really great for my husband & I to have "OUR TIME!" Our kids attended for 5 out of the 7 days for our trip & it worked out just perfect for all of us! It allowed for a great combination of both family time & free time. THANK YOU SO MUCH FUNKY FISH CAMP!!! :) :) :)The Colt Family (Forest Hill, Maryland)
