    Boat trips with 18 month old

    We are looking for a catameran type trip to do with our daughter. Is there a specific one that anyone can reccomend? I was interested in the jolly pirate but IDK if that is a good fit for her.

    Check out this Blue Melody/Black Pearl. I've gone out with them at least three times over the years with my family and have had a wonderful experience each time. It's much smaller than Jolly Pirate's. We've seen young children, but I'm not sure if they were 18 mths. The youngest I remember was probably around 3. He had a great time.

    the depalm tour catameran with the inside seating area is probably the best option for you. at least you'll have a safe area to take care of your kid

    I'm glad you found the Black Pearl/Blue Melody site useful, cristina. If nothing else, you can get a very good idea of what to expect on their tour from the pictures and videos. The owners are lovely people, and if you have any questions, I'm sure you'd get a prompt reply if you send them an email. Personally, I much prefer a smaller quieter boat to the large party boats, but I know I'd particularly prefer it if I were traveling with a toddler.

    The fresh grilled tomato/cheese sandwiches they serve on the cruise are simply delicious, and those followed with the watermelon are more than enough for a meal. My sons aren't big tomato eaters, but they love those sandwiches. So, in the end, the cost of the boat/snorkel trip is greatly offset by not having to go out for dinner.

    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents
