Good for kids? 

This adventure is great for everyone! We have a very limited supply of child size life jackets, so if your kiddos are under 50lbs, consider bringing your own. Be sure to pick the earlier trip, to get on the water before the “Big Kids” wake up.

What to bring: The trip will be mild, but there is always a chance of getting wet, so please dress accordingly! In addition to a bathing suit and shoes that can get wet, we suggest bringing sunglasses, a towel, camera, water bottle, and snacks. This trip is only for Melters, so bring the party along. Costumes, face paint and other party favors are encouraged!
