Gorda Cay Things to Do

  • Parasailing

    My grandmother asked me if I wanted to go parasailing and I was OK with that although I told her I would not do the big slide on the boat. I think she wondered if I had problems with height, but I don't. We were the last boat of the day. They took us out to the parasailing boat and we left our shoes on the dock. Because it was the last trip of the...

  • Boating and Water Sports

    A variety of activities are available to guests including bicycle hire, personal watercraft rental, massages overlooking the ocean, snorkeling, para-sailing, volleyball and basketball. Obviously volleyball and basketball didn't appeal to my grandmother. She first thought we might rent a Hobie Cat, but she decided instead to rent a little float...

  • Snorkel

    I loved the snorkeling in Costa Maya. The water was warm and I could really see the fish and coral. I told my older brother Ha Ha because he tried snorkeling with my grandmother (in Hawaii) and hated it.This time was not as good. Unfortunately my mask didn't fit right and I kept getting water in my snorkel. I got another mask, but it wasn't much...

  • Stingray Feeding

    I fed the stingrays once before with my mom. But this time was a little different. We went into a shaded area and they told us that the sting rays had their stingers removed - they were captive in the little lagoon. They were trained to come up on a ramp and take the food right from your fist which is over a Mickey outline target which you can see...

Guests must be able to climb five steps to board and debark the boat.- This tour is not recommended for Guests with limited mobility.But I knew that I had...

Such as parasailing, fishing, a stingray interaction adventure and boat rental.Pelican Plunge at Castaway Cay is within swimming distance of the shore.

  • Lunch on the beach

    When the ship is at Castaway Cay, lunch is on shore (for free - it is included in the fare price). Because I can't have gluten (wheat) each evening our waiter gave us the menu for the next day so I could pick what I wanted to eat. On the night before we were at Castaway Cay, our waiter just told us that there would be a gluten free lunch for me on...

  • Outdoors on the Cay

    The two main areas for lunch are Cookie's and Cookies Too is open. (This is included in your cruise fare.) There was an array of seasonal fresh fruit and barbecue favorites including hamburgers, chicken, hot dogs and the potato salad If you're still hungry, soft serve ice cream is the perfect beach dessert. Since my granddaughter needs a gluten...

    For transportation, you can head to the Tram Station. The tram goes from the ship to the Family/Teen Beach. For guests wanting to visit Serenity Bay Adult Beach, there's a second tram that will take you there. It is free.
