    I have booked to rent snorkel lagoon equipment on Castaway Cay for our next cruise but the availability said 8am. Can this equipment be collected at any time during the day or do I have to be there first thing to get it?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Cherise!

    I'm so glad you plan to snorkel at Disney Castaway Cay! It is one of my favorite activities on this little island paradise. You will be happy to know you can pick up your snorkel gear any time during the day. 

    There is so much to see underwater in the Snorkeling Lagoon near Castaway Family Beach! Even the most novice snorkeler will enjoy exploring the hidden treasures found on the Discover Trail. More confident snorkelers might enjoy Explorer Trail. You can find the map for these underwater trails at Flippers and Floats or Gil's Fins & Boats, where you decide to go to pick up your snorkel gear. Out in the water, you will see buoys marking the locations of the sights, too. If you aren't sure where to go, you can ask the lifeguards at the stations out in the water for directions. Remember to return your snorkel gear, before you head back to the ship at the end of the day.

    Take it from me, remember to put extra sunscreen (reef safe is best!) on your back before you dive in. Or, do what I do and buy one of the fun Castaway Cay exclusive rash guards from She Sells Sea Shells...and Everything Else! Once out of the water, treat yourself to some soft-serve ice cream at Cookie's BBQ or a Konk Cooler from Conched Out Bar. I highly recommend both!

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Cherise! You are going to have a wonderful time on Castaway Cay. Be sure to listen to the Castaway Cay planDisney Podcast episode where my pals share their favorite tips!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
