This record long summer will be filled with special events which include discounted tickets for the 2017 season.

After your memorable Pirate Adventure aboard the Sea Gypsy, hop on over a few piers down for an interactive fishing adventure aboard the Sea Dragon. Family Fishing Adventures will have your child immersed in the world of Fishing & Crabbing with hands-on activities. This adventure includes catch and release fishing, pulling up crab traps, discovering local marine life and more. Check out their site for special events and info on planning a fishing birthday party!

Have a full day in the Annapolis Harbor with a Pirate Adventure in the morning on third Street, a kid-friendly lunch at The Boatyard on 4th street, then followed by a fishing adventure  near 5th street in the afternoon! This is an ideal plan to fill up one of those extra summer days and make your summer break with the kids count!

Hop from the Annapolis Harbor to The National Harbor and have another day on the waterfront, filled with excitement and fun this summer break! There are numerous things to see and do at the National Harbor but we have a handful of suggestions for an ideal kid-friendly day! Swing by the PEEPS & COMPANY®  store and be prepared to be fully entertained by the interactive activities, displays and videos throughout.  Check out the glowing five foot Peep. Definitely worth peeping in! If your kiddos aren’t afraid of heights, the Capital Wheel is a fun way to see the best views of the D.C skyline as you soar 180 feet over the Potomac in a climate-controlled gondola. For those who prefer to go round and round on land, take them on a classic Carousel ride.  End the day watching the sunset while paddling a giant Swan pedal boat with the whole fam.
