    Trying to decide between snorkeling at Castaway Cay or booking the Catamaran Sail, Snorkel and Private Beach Club (ST56) on St. Thomas. Is it worth the extra $ to snorkel in St. Thomas or is Castaway sufficient?

    Ahoy, Stefanie!
    Deciding on a Port Adventure is always a challenge for me because I always want to make sure everyone in my family is happy with our time in port. I've snorkeled on both Castaway Cay and In St. Thomas and enjoyed both! If you have not snorkeled before, Castaway Cay is a great option. It is also the perfect beach day in my opinion! The Catamaran Sail, Snorkel and Private Beach Club lasts around four hours, so this is something to consider when making your decision. On Castaway Cay, you'll have a bit more flexibility with your plans, but you may enjoy seeing the sights of St. Thomas on your 45-minute sail to the private beach location. If you choose to book this adventure, you could always choose a different experience on Castaway Cay like Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure or the Extreme Getaway Package
    I really don't think you can go wrong with your decision, Stefanie! Thank you again for continuing to stop by with your cruise questions! 
    Have a magical day!
