I don’t recall seeing a minimum age but five might be a little young unless he/she a big five-year-old. You can contact them and ask.

Yes! Just provide them with your address and they come to you! We were picked up around 9 am in a 12 passenger van.

Our trip took a total of about 6 hours including travel, overview of safety procedures, and lunch. I would say we were on the water for between 2.5 and 3 hours? Hope this helps!
