    Does Castaway Cay have prescription snorkle masks for children? Thanks!

    Hi Cindy! 

    It sounds like you are planning a Disney cruise to my favorite Bahamian paradise, Castaway Cay. So exciting! Your family should get ready for fun in the sun during your stop at this beautiful island.

    Prescription snorkeling masks are not available on Castaway Cay. Guests are more than welcome to bring their own snorkeling gear. However, if you're interested in renting a non-prescription mask, snorkel, and fins, they are included in the Snorkel Lagoon Equipment Rentals. Prices are subject to change, and currently the rates are $ 18 for ages 5-9 and $ 34 for ages 10 and up. While snorkeling, children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or older.

    The Snorkeling Lagoon has snorkeling trails for beginners and more experienced snorkelers and even some hidden treasures “under the sea.” I like that Disney Cruise Line focuses on safety in requiring snorkelers to wear complimentary life vests. Additionally, lifeguards are also positioned around the lagoon if a Guest needs assistance while snorkeling. 

    My family's favorite Port Adventure on Castaway Cay is the Castaway Cay Getaway Package, which includes snorkel equipment rental for the day, float rental for the day, and bicycle rental for an hour. We get some exercise, have the calming experience of snorkeling, and can chill out a bit just floating around. The highlight for me is biking around the island, especially surveying the birds eye view of the ship from the Observation Tower.

    Check out the full list of Castaway Cay Port Adventures and use the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for more information on everything offered at Castaway Cay during your stay.

    If you have any other questions while you plan your voyage to paradise, please come back and visit us again! We're here to help make your planning a smooth-sailing experience. 

    Happy Sailing!
