Ahoy mateys and welcome ocean princesses!
This mermaid and pirate combo ticket offers your wee lads and lasses a day full of fun at Newport Aquarium and BB Riverboats and even includes a picnic lunch.
Your day begins at the Newport Aquarium where you’ll discover the magic of the world famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids. Be amazed as you watch them swim underwater with their favorite Aquarium animals in the coral reef exhibit. Plus, meet a mermaid up-close and out of the water.
Lunch is served in Newport Aquarium’s Riverside Room from 12pm – 2pm. Then at 2pm the BB Riverboats’ pirates invade and kidnap (escort) everyone for a pirate themed cruise on the Ohio River.
Board the Captain's boat for an afternoon cruise full of fun and games for the entire family. Your kids will pick up their free pirate hat and eye patch, get a pirate tattoo and participate in pirate games. Use your treasure map to collect your bounty before the cruise pulls back into dock.
