 Magens Bay Beach Break   [ST27]

Rating: 9

Relax and swim at the beautiful white sandy beaches of Magens Bay. Take a 25-min. scenic drive, stopping at Drake’s Seat along the way for photos and great views. A beach chair and bottled water are included in the price of the excursion. Typical meeting time is 9:00 am. Cruiser reviews are positive: Those visiting Magens Bay found the beach “wonderful” and “absolutely beautiful.” They also “enjoyed the ride from the pier” as “some of the views going over the mountain were absolutely gorgeous.” “Restrooms and a snack bar” are available. Most cruisers recommend you “do the excursion on your own” because “it’s so easy to do and much cheaper than paying what Disney charges per person for the same thing.” (On Your Own: Take a taxi from the pier to Magens Bay for about $10/person each way, and then pay $5/person admission to the beach.)

 Doubloon Turtle Cove Sail & Snorkel   [ST08]

Rating: 9

Help hoist the sails of the 65-foot “Doubloon” schooner and cruise to Turtle Cove on Buck Island. Snorkel (equipment provided) and swim. Includes snacks and drinks. Typical meeting time is 7:15 am. Cruiser reviews are positive: This “fun” excursion with a “heavy pirate theme” is fun for “kids and adults alike.” While it’s not a “major sailing experience,” it is “enjoyable” and the “crew is attentive.” Snorkeling at Buck Island is “good,” though you may not be able to walk on the beach due to “nesting birds.” “Rum punch,” “beer,” and “soda” are served. Overall, most cruisers “recommend it.”
