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.

Cruise to Alcatraz – San Francisco, Ca.

Families can take the 1.25 mile cruise across the San Francisco Bay, and get a peek into what life was like on the Rock (and how hard it was to get off of it). Besides being able to walk the same halls as some of America’s most notorious criminals (Al Capone, for one), you’ll also have the chance to explore the island—the 22-acre chunk of land is now home to multitudes of rare flowers, marine animals, and roosting and nesting sea birds.
