    How deep is the water in front of the cabanas on Castaway Cay? When I look at posted pictures, the water looks extremely shallow. I am looking forward to snorkeling, floating and tubing with my family. Judy

    Hi Judy!

    It's so lovely seeing another question from you! Thanks so much for sailing back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Just daydreaming about spending the afternoon in a private cabana on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, has me smiling from ear to ear! I love any Disney Cruise Line itinerary that includes a stop to this tropical paradise.

    Exploring the wonders under the sea while snorkeling? Floating your stress away? Bobbing around in an inner tube? These are three of MY favorite things to do with my family while visiting Castaway Cay, too! During our most recent visit, we rented a private cabana off Castaway Family Beach and have also reserved a private cabana off the adults-only beach, Serenity Bay, in the past. Sharing a private beach with our cabana neighbors was the perfect way to spend the day! The water level starts off shallow right where you enter the ocean and then gradually becomes deeper the farther out you swim. I think you and your pirate crew will find it to be an excellent depth to enjoy all of your favorite splashtacular activities!

    For a really magical snorkeling experience, I recommend taking your gear and heading over to the Snorkeling Lagoon. Definitely keep an eye out for some hidden Disney treasures waiting to be found below the ocean's surface!

    Judy, it is always a pleasure hEARing from you. Please sail back with any other questions as you plan for your adventure at sea.
