 Snorkel Lagoon Equipment Rental   [C01]

Explore Disney’s 22-acre snorkeling lagoon—price includes all-day rental of mask, fins, and vest (light flotation). Beginners can take the Discover Trail; experienced snorkelers may like the longer Explorer Trail. Both trails have lots to see. Pick up your snorkel equipment at Gil’s Fins. Note that children under 13 must be with an adult. (On Your Own: Bring your own equipment and use the lagoon!)

 2-Day Snorkel Lagoon Equipment Rental   [C14]

This is a two-day version of Snorkel Lagoon Equipment Rental [C01], available only on "double-dip" itineraries that make two stops at Castaway Cay. Though the savings are obvious if you do plan to snorkel on both days (or are worried that the kids will shout, "Again, again"), with so much else to do on the island... Rental includes mask, snorkel, fins, and (mandatory) floatation vest, and you can hold onto the gear all day long.

  Bicycle Rental   [C04]

Rating: 8

Dozens of bikes in a range of sizes await. Training wheels, child seats, and helmets are available. The biking paths are on flat terrain, and there’s plenty of drinking water along the way. Look for the ocean outlook at the end of the bike path! Cruiser reviews are positive: The bikes are “comfortable” and the “trail is beautiful.” At the end of the trail is a “very peaceful,” “secluded beach.”

 Castaway Cay Getaway Package   [C05]

Rating: 7

This package includes all-day float and snorkel equipment rentals, and a one-hour bike rental, for a savings of $11 (adults)/$16 (ages 5 to 9). Very popular—book early. Cruiser reviews are positive: Cruisers enjoyed having the rentals “secured” and felt it is “good deal,” though many noted they weren’t able to use all three rentals. Must be booked in advance or on board to obtain the package rate.

 2-Day Castaway Cay Getaway Package   [C17]

This is a two-day version of 2-Day Castaway Cay Getaway Package [C05], available only on "double-dip" itineraries that make two stops at Castaway Cay. On each day you'll have all-day use of snorkel gear and floats, plus a one-hour bike ride for just $11/$5 more than the one-day package. That's a fine deal if you actually do one of these items twice, but with so many other tempting activities and excursions, will you get around to it?

 Extreme Getaway Package   [C18]

For a really action-packed day, try packing-in snorkeling, a float rental, a one-hour bike ride, and a regular, one-hour session at Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure (C13). Adds $33/$38 to the cost of the Getaway Package (C05). That's a savings of $15 for adults, but just $1 for kids vs. adding Ray's separately to the Getaway Package ($26/$17 savings over booking all four separately). Your stingray adventure must be done at the time shown on your ticket, the other activities can be done "at your leisure" (hardly the term we'd use). And don't forget lunch! Assuming you spend just an hour at each activity and need 10 minutes to move from one to the next... If you don't hit the island by 9:30 AM, you'll barely have time to do it all.

 Parasailing   [C08]

Rating: 9

If you’ve never tried parasailing, this is a great experience for beginners. You can go solo or tandem, and you’ll take off from the boat and land in it when you’re done. Expect to be airborne for 5–7 minutes, with 600 feet of rope between you and the boat. Guests must be 90–375 lbs. (40–170 kg.) to parasail. Tandem parasailing is possible if you’re both under the maximum weight combined (and may even be required on windy days). Be sure to take a disposable camera for amazing photos while in the air! Cruiser reviews are very positive: “No experience is necessary” to enjoy this “amazing flight” over the water. The “views” are “stunning.” It’s a “real adrenaline rush” and a “genuine highlight.” “Book early” as “spots fill up quickly.” Cruisers say “go for it!” May be canceled due to high winds.

You'll have more than two hours for catch-and-release fishing. Depending on conditions, you may fish deeper waters for larger species. Light snacks and a bottled beverage included. There are no rest rooms on board.
