We did the kids cruise on Saturday morning. The guide and captain were very knowledgeable and interacted great with the kids. They had binoculars for the kids to use and scavenger hunts for the kids. Definitely a fun time for all!

I went in Fall and did not have any young kids along, however, I think young kids would enjoy it! I would definately bring fun snacks for all.
