I'm going to be traveling to Bequia this winter with my wife and our two children (aged 5 and almost 2). Thanks to all of you for your advice so far. We would like to do a trip on the Friendship Rose, probably to the Tobago Keys. Would this be appropriate for the kids? They are used to sailing, although in calmer waters and generally for shorter periods of time. They both love the beach and splashing around in the water and the older one swims to some extent, but they wouldn't be snorkeling. Do you think the younger one would be okay on the boat? It can be hard to get him to sit still for extended periods of time (although he is relatively sedate for a toddler)... My other option would be to leave him with my wife and just take my older daughter. Thanks very much.
