For both residents and visitors of Florida, the words “summer” and “ocean” are a naturally occurring combination. And now through Sept. 30, Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort & Marina is offering guests the chance to get involved with all things ocean through its Play Like Posideon package.

The fun starts with a $100 voucher for Treasure Coast Paddle, where guests can enjoy aquatic adventures such as kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, paddle boating and canoeing. Then, they’ll move on to The Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center where they can learn about the underwater ecosystem through hands-on interactions and activities, including various touch tanks and a 750,000-gallon game fish lagoon. And don’t let your clients worry about transportation—the package also includes a $25 gas card to get them here, there, and anywhere else they’d like to go during their stay.

Rates for the Play Like Posideon package start at $189.95 per night—use booking code U29. For more information, call (800) 775-5936 or visit marriotthutchinsonisland.com.

In Miami
Meanwhile in Miami, if it’s a stylish property your guests have in mind, Eden Roc Renaissance can deliver. Located just minutes from Bal Harbour Shops and the shops and restaurants of Lincoln Road—not to mention the South Beach nightlife—your clients will find themselves in the heart of Miami shopping and culture.

To add a little extra dazzle, the property is offering Suntastic Savings rates through Sept. 30, which include a daily $50 resort credit. Use that credit at 1500°, the farm-to-table dining concept of celebrity chef Paula DaSilva, or at ELLE Spa, which was recently recognized in Conde Nast Traveler’s 2012 Hot List as one of the best new spas in the world. Kids are welcome at Eden Roc Renaissance, too, where they can play at Camp Roc, a rock-and-roll theme program featuring Guitar Hero games as well as arts and crafts and physical activities. And both children and adults alike are welcome at the four pools, each featuring ocean views—well, kids will have to keep content with just three pools, as the fourth is an upper-level adults-only sanctuary.

Suntastic Savings rates start at $219 per night—use promo code SUM. For more information, call (305) 531-0000 or visit edenrocmiami.com.
