Trending Now


Ahoy, Matey! Does your kiddo like to float? Well, with clear skies and sunny days ahead there’s never been a better time to get her out on the water. From pirate ship adventures on the Chesapeake to lazy alligator cruises in the Louisiana bayou, here are 10 great boat rides perfect for mini mariners.

Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours – Marrero, La

Set sail on a lazy float through the bayou just a half hour outside New Orleans; learn about the history and wildlife of the swamp lands, and watch as your Cajun-born tour guide tosses marshmallows (gators love them!) into hungry alligator mouths. You'll also get a chance to hold a baby gator, and (back at the dock) check out a slew of rescued swamp animals.
