It's a nice sturdy boat so it would be easy to take my little guy on but I know the atmosphere can be kind of wild. He has a little pirate ship and hat at home that he loves so I think he'd be super excited about the ship. They say their family friendly and I see lots of kids in the pics on the website. I thought maybe the 9:30 am tour would be more tame but it is after all vacation so you never know! Has anyone taken a small child on one of their trips?
