10 Amazing Boat Rides for Your Little Seafarers

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.

Maid of the Mist – Niagara Falls, Ny.

Feel the thundering rush of 600,000 gallons of water as you stop just short of the base of the nation's largest waterfall (and the second largest in the world) for a very wet photo opp. You may feel like you're going to get swept under the churning water, but don't worry: Maid of the Mist captains have been taking tourists to the Falls since 1846. The tour takes passengers past the American, and the Bridal Veil Falls before gliding into the mist of the majestic (and largest) Horseshoe Falls. Here's where (even with the souvenir poncho you'll be handed at the journey's start) you'll get thoroughly "misted."
