 Watercraft Ski Adventure (Single)   [C12]

Rating: 9

Explore Castaway Cay on a single-rider personal watercraft (also known as a “WaveRunner” or “Jet-Ski”) with a knowledgeable tour guide accompanying you. Note that you must be 18 years or older to drive the personal watercraft. Max. weight is 375 lb./170 kg. Typical meeting times are 9:45 am, 10:30 am, 11:15 am, 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm, 1:45 pm, and 2:45 pm. Cruiser reviews are very positive: Guests love “riding the WaveRunners” at a “brisk pace” while getting “gorgeous views” of Castaway Cay and the Abacos. Cruisers recommend you “bring watershoes” and a “waterproof camera” as there are “good photo-ops on the tour.” Those who’ve done this excursion remind us that “just hanging on to the WaveRunner for a long time as you navigate through the waves can leave you a bit tired and even a little sore.” Most cruisers found this an “excellent excursion” and “highly recommend it” to others.

Explore Castaway Cay on a tandem personal watercraft (also known as a “WaveRunner” or “Jet-Ski”) with a knowledgeable tour guide accompanying you. Fee covers both riders. Note that you must be 18 years or older to drive the personal watercraft (guests ages 16 and 17 may drive with a parent on the same craft). Max. weight is 450 lb./204 kg. Typical meeting times are 9:45 am, 10:30 am, 11:15 am, 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm, 1:45 pm, and 2:45 pm. Cruiser reviews are very positive: Guests love “riding the WaveRunners” at a “brisk pace” while getting “gorgeous views” of Castaway Cay and the Abacos. Cruisers recommend you “bring watershoes” and a “waterproof camera” as there are “good photo-ops on the tour.” Those who’ve done this excursion remind us that “just hanging on to the WaveRunner for a long time as you navigate through the waves can leave you a bit tired and even a little sore.” Parents also point out that kids who ride double with you “just hang on to your waist—there are no buckles or restraints” to keep them from falling into the water. Most cruisers found this an “excellent excursion” and “highly recommend it” to others.

 Walking and Kayak Nature Adventure   [C10]

Rating: 7

Explore areas of Castaway Cay normally off-limits to guests! Start with a 40-min. nature hike to reach your kayak launch site, then enjoy an hour-long kayak trip through mangroves. Afterward, swim at a deserted beach, then take a 20-min. walk back. Typical meeting times are 9:00 am, 9:15 am, and 12:45 pm. We did this ourselves and really enjoyed it—we recommend it to anyone who wants to be active and explore the ecosystem. Wear appropriate footwear. We think it’s best for those who’ve visited the island before. Cruiser reviews are mixed—most think the kayaking is “awesome” but others felt the overall “pace was too slow.” Kids were “bored” with the nature aspects and “didn’t do much paddling.” Cruisers report seeing “lots of wildlife.” Other guests recommend you “bring/wear bug repellent” although “bugs aren’t too bothersome.” Bottled water and soda provided.

Rating: 9

Retrace the adventures of the first teens on the island—Molly and Seth. There’s plenty of action, and you’ll get to do some speedboating, biking, snorkeling, and hangin out at the Teen Hideout. Typical meeting time is very early for teens—around 9:00 am. Teen cruiser reviews are overwhelmingly positive: First, “wait until you see who else is going” before you book—this tour “is best when you go with people you know” (but don’t wait too long—it can book up). On Castaway Cay, you “do the bike ride first,” “kayak (now speedboat) for about 20 minutes,” then bike back to go “snorkeling.” After lunch at Cookies, you “hook up with other teens at the teen beach.” Many think this was the “highlight” of their cruise; those who disagree had issues with “other teens,” not the excursion.
