    We are heading on a 4 night cruise on the Disney Dream in January 2016 and my 11 year old son is quite the fisherman. What fishing excursion do you recommend for him and my husband to try at Castaway Cay?

    Hi, Jodi!

    What a fun experience for your son - a fishing adventure when you visit Disney Cruise Line's private island, Castaway Cay! There are several fun Port Adventures to choose from - it really depends on what kind of fishing he likes to do.

    First, there's Castaway Cay Bottom Fishing. This adventure is a shallow-water experience, with up to eight other guests. Guides that are very familiar with the reefs will take you to the best location for catching exotic shallow-reef fish such as grouper, yellow tail, and snapper. Soft drinks, bottled water, fishing tackle and bait are provided.

    For a bit more excitement, there's Castaway Cay Fishing by Troll Boat. This deep-water adventure takes you out into the beautiful waters off Castaway Cay. On this excursion, guests will be fishing for larger species of fish, including mahi-mahi, marlin, tuna and wahoo. Drinks and snacks and all fishing equipment is included.

    For the avid fisherman, looking for the ultimate fishing experience, there's the Abaco Flats Fly Fishing Adventure. This excursion is for two guests only, who will share a private flat boat with a professional guide. During this adventure, guests will fish for barracuda, sharks and more! Soft drinks, snacks and all fishing equipment is included.

    All fishing adventures are catch and release.

    I hope you'll find the perfect Port Adventure for your little angler and his dad - one that they fall in love with, hook line and sinker!

    Have a magical day! - Diane W.
