help with current ICW and advice

Experienced offshore and ICW sailor from 10 years ago, now with kids. We are going to do an ICW trip soon. We want to give the kids a cool, educational experience. Any changes since 2002? I'm really thinking about a power boat, I'm ducking! Cost vs. time thing. Rentals available maybe?? I have no ego; just want to get it done.

conditions in the ICW are not always conducive for a sailboat and if time is the constraint and not fuel cost then a power boat is better noise is one of the factors to consider also
