Norman Island on a Sunday-??
      #1733283 - 05/19/17 05:13 PM (75.176.182.107)

So the MIT flotilla itinerary has made me rethink our float plan. Can anyone give me a rundown of the atmosphere over on Norman on a Sunday? I've been there many other days but I've read some hellish stories about out of line patrons at the Willy T on a Sunday.
We will have newbies and children on board and surely the kids will want to visit "the pirate ship"
I'd appreciate comments.
Thanks!

Sunday is locals night on the Willy T -- I would just maybe take the kids earlier? I've heard varying reports of how rowdy it can get - if you're just bringing the kids over and having some dinner, I imagine it would be fine....

You're probably fine in the afternoon, but I wouldn't do it any later. It's kinda hit or miss.

By 8 pm the kids should be back to the boat. Sunday can get quite crazy and the dining room will not insulate you from the insanity.

We were there on a Sunday last summer with my, at the time, 7 year old. You're right, kids WILL want to go see the pirate ship. We did a flyby in the dinghy in the afternoon and since it was almost vacant we stopped and had s few drinks. No problem whatsoever. Plan on an afternoon visit, be flexible and you will be fine.

Just keep in mind that if you are thinking of substituting Norman for Peter on the 28th due to the MIT crowd? Norman is one of the stops for Poker Run that day...

I have gone to the Willy T on Sunday on my last four charters (including this past April). I've never had a problem. In fact, things were pretty tame there last month. I wouldn't be put off or change your schedule if it works for you to be there Sunday

We went last Saturday (5/13) and had a blast. One word of warning if you take kids day or night, keep them away from the TV's at the bar. Some of those pictures of previous partiers are very risque!! Didn't bother us but we are all adults.

Must be getting old. We were on Willie T for 1 drink last Friday evening and the crappy music they were blaring drove us away. We were there around 9PM and it was pretty dead.
