    Which Port Adventure is best for snorkeling at Castaway Cay: the lagoon or the catamaran? We´re certified divers but do enjoy snorkeling as long as there´s plenty to see. We´re also taking our 9-y-old son on his first snorkeling adventure. T

    Hi Juliana,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  In all honesty, compared to other snorkeling I've experienced - the lagoon at Disney's Castaway Cay was a bit of a disappointment to me.  There are fish to see, but very few reefs.  There are a lot of cool "props" that litter the sea floor, that create a unique setting - but for an experienced diver/snorkeler it may not be all that impressive.  Add to that the amount of sand that is stirred up by the guests and the tides and the clarity of the water can be compromised.

    I would highly recommend the Seahorse Catamaran Snorkel Adventure for those that are really looking kick their snorkel experience up a notch!

    Good luck with your decision, I hope this helps!
