Family fun in the sun!

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck spent Easter weekend exploring Oahu, Hawaii with their three children Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6. On Saturday, the whole family visited Sea Life Park.

“They made a family trip to interact with dolphins, sea lions and stingrays,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They spent several hours at the park and looked like they had the best time. The kids were all very interested in learning about the animals. They all seem like huge dolphin fans.”

During the trip, Garner, 45, is staying at a resort while Affleck is staying at a nearby house. While the couple’s three kids are spending time with their father, the actress is enjoying herself with a female friend.

Affleck has been training for his new film Triple Frontier in Hawaii in recent weeks, and has been joined by his girlfriend Lindsay Shookus. According to a second source, Affleck had a short amount of time off to celebrate Easter, so Garner opted to take the kids to him.

“Jen seemed excited about the trip. She hasn’t been to Hawaii for a while and always loved it,” adds the source.

Affleck, 45, and Garner separated in 2015 and filed for divorce last year, but the former couple have maintained an amicable relationship for the sake of their children.

“The kids love when they all spend time together,” says the second source. “As long as Ben keeps working on himself, Jen is happy. She will continue to support him because it benefits the kids.”

Before Affleck was joined by his children and ex in Hawaii, he was spotted holding hands in Honolulu with Shookus last week.

The actor, who recently showed off his giant back tattoo, and the Saturday Night Live producer, 37, are “very much still together,” a source previously told PEOPLE.

Another source said the couple are “not rushing anything,” but that they “enjoy each others company” and “are in a committed relationship.”
