Regarding how to introduce the family to sailing: learn to sail first; and identify a boat or a charter; and take them out on some idyllic, sunny, light wind, bluebird kind of day.
I'm a Child Development specialist and what Faster said in the second post, about kids, is spot-on. Buy that toddler his own set of inexpensive binoculars (real binoculars, not a toy but nothing expensive) and maybe a small mesh seine dip net for seeing what's in the water by the beach.
I'm sure that you have many sailing schools and charters in your area. I chartered a boat and took classes in Vancouver B.C just two hours north of you. The sailors in their club there all have heaters on their boats and sail all year around.
