Ritz Kids®

From the moment of arrival, we welcome kids to The Ritz-Carlton by encouraging them to explore the sights and sounds of the hotel and its environment. Guided by playfulness and a sense of wonder, Ritz Kids delights and engages your children to interact with their surroundings in a fresh and exciting way, while introducing them to the four important pillars of Ritz Kids discovery: Water, Land, Environmental Responsibility and Culture.

Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program offers excursions for adults, families and children (five and older) led by expert naturalists. For a complete list and schedule of available activities, please explore our Ambassadors of the Environment program.

The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas offers junior guests a variety of special services and amenities, including:

  • Snorkel and scuba programs (Children ages five and older are welcome on our snorkeling outings and ages eight and older on our scuba tours)
    Introduce your child to sailing with Island Time Watersports' Youth Sailing Program! US Sailing Certified Instructors work with students age 8-12 on the fundamentals of sailing, with both half and full day options.

    Our half day camp runs from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with class sizes limited to three students per instructor. We start the morning with a chalk-talk, highlighting our goals for the day before getting hands-on experience aboard Hobie Waves.

    When the morning ends, sailors participating in the full-day camp have lunch with their instructors at Sails from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.

    The sailors spend their afternoon back in Great Bay, applying the fundamentals learned earlier to sailing Aqua Finns and Optimists, while instructors run exercises from motorized inflatable chase-boats.

    Offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
