    We booked the Abaco Rigid Snorkeling adventure ($168) on castaway for 1:30, but would like to snorkel on our on before that time, so I also rented snorkel equ. ($64). Will we be reimbursed for the rent of the equ? Or they completely different vendors?

    Ahoy, Cynthia!

    It sounds like you have some splashtacular fun planned for your visit to Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! The Abaco Rigid Hull Snorkeling Adventure is a wonderful way to explore the beautiful marine life and coral reefs located just a couple of miles away from Disney's paradise in the Bahamas. You'll enjoy being guided by the expert Bahamian crew and having them there for any questions you may have about your excursion. This Port Adventure and the Snorkel Lagoon Equipment Rentals are two separate experiences, so you will need to rent the equipment for each one. If you have your own snorkel equipment, you are welcome to bring it along to use in the snorkeling lagoon to save you some money since there is no charge to use only a life vest. 

    You'll be able to pick up and drop off your snorkel equipment or life vests if you bring your own at either Gil's Fins and Boats located just beyond Boat Beach near the Scuttle's Cove Tram Stop or at Flippers and Floats near the Pelican Point Tram Stop. There are two areas to explore in the snorkeling lagoon, one for those just starting out and one for those who feel a bit more comfortable in the water. We've done both and found that the further out you go, the more likely you are to see some fish and maybe a sea turtle or two! There are a few magical treasures hidden, so I suggest giving yourself around 45 minutes to discover them.  

    Cynthia, you'll be taking the plunge into the crystal blue water off of Castaway Cay before you know it. We hope you'll keep us in mind as you think of additional questions about your voyage with Disney Cruise Line. We are always happy to help. 

    Have a magical day!
