Kids are welcome to come aboard, so don’t hesitate to turn this into a family experience. It’s a great way to spend time in nature and make some lifelong memories. You’ll get water on board, but make sure to bring some snacks and drinks to stay energized throughout the day, so you can enjoy the battle these creatures put up!
