We've been to the Seaport several times and have a 4-year old. He's at a great age to walk through there and always enjoys it. We bought a combo pass for both the Aquarium and the Seaport which ran us $120 for 2 adults and 1 child. I do think the price is a little on the high side when you consider the majority of the buildings you're going into on the Seaport are superficial entry and by that I mean you walk in about 2 feet and stand at a plastic wall to look in. It's still very interesting. They have some good activities for kids. My son loved the "build your own boat" activity. We also took a carriage ride, but that I would say is completely worthless other than the experience the kids get riding around. It lasts for no more than 10 minutes and is $5 per person. Too much money. The narrative isn't tailored at all one way or the other if kids are there.
You can go on the boats as well and even go for boat rides. We took a ride on the Sabino and the Captain was very nice. We sat in the bow area - no one else there. He came out a few times and gave us information on the boats in the harbor and a great tip on a wonderful ice cream shop (Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream Shop - I got the Seaport Salty Swirl - hello peanut butter, carmel and pretzels in my ice cream - very good - plus the drawbridge went up when we were sitting there). It was like having our own private tour and all because we chose to sit in the shade below deck. Score! They do have a nice boat playground as well the kids all loved to play on.
