I'm planning a Halloween party this year and from past experience I've learned that the best way to keep kids happy, occupied and having fun at a party is to rent games, inflatables, and entertainers. Last year, I hired a company from Peabody Perfect Parties USA. Perfect Parties USA customer service and professional staff were outstanding and all of the equipment was clean and safe. I was very happy with their service and I plan to use them for my personal and corporate parties.
The Junior Sailing program at EPYC is a safe, educational and fun program for kids ages 7 to 18. The program features classroom style, “Chalk Talk”, and multiple hours on the water sailing as Skippers or Crew. The program is designed for beginner through experienced sailors to gain the skills necessary to succeed in sailing while learning life lessons to improve self confidence. The "hands on" instruction and top-of-the-line boats and equipment will make for a summer experience for the kids.

The high-speed Hurricane II wastes no time getting to the whale sites. It's the fastest, most comfortable way to view the ocean's fascinating creatures. Getting you to and from the whale watch in less time means you get to spend more time actually watching the whales.
