Take her on the the J & B Tours Beach Cruise to "Iguana Island". Snorkel Coral Gardens & Smith Reef (easy). Bugaloos is fun for the conch and the shells. Walk the beach. Try the Hobie cats. Parasail. Lots a smaller shells where the water breaks and at the high tide area.

The J and B Cave safari would have been a lot of fun with my 14 and 16 yr old girls....However there is not one ounce of shade on the J And B boat...I have a blond and a red-head...After 8 hours and an empty sunscreen bottle, we were all heatstroked and fried!!! There are other compnanies that do the cave thing...and they have better onboard sun protection! We rented our car from Tropical Auto..They brought the car to our hotel...When we stopped at their office to put air in a tire, they noticed it had a leak and just gave us a new car on the spot...Very nice and easy to deal with. The kids loved snorkeling at Coral Gardens...Have fun! SPB
