This little island in the Bahamas is rented by Royal Caribbean. The only way to visit is a Royal Caribbean cruise. Snorkeling here is excellent. I recommend picking up a couple little cereal boxes (any flavor) from the ship at the windjammer buffet. Take the bag of cereal snorkeling with you. It doesn't matter if the cereal gets soggy when you open the bag. The fish will swarm you if you have the cereal. You can get up close and personal with them. They will follow you once you have fed them. I will say the main area that you snorkel in is a little rough from the waves. A vest is required and costs $6.00 to rent one. If it bothers you just deflate it. You can go on the other side if the Island and snorkel without the vest. The water is smooth on the other side and less crowded. There are less tropical fish on that side. There are sting rays and sharks. They didn't bother us but were definitely in sight at times. My husband and son stayed in the water but I got out once I knew the shark was there. There are lockers for rent that cost $8.00 for the day near the building where you rent the snorkel equipment. We brought our own snorkel gear. All charges are put in your sea pass. There is a little village where you can buy some souvenirs. You will need cash if you want to purchase something there. There are plenty of lounge chairs and some shade. If you want the shady seats get off the ship early. Especially if your on one of the bigger ships. Lunch - no problem. Royal Caribbean brings the food off the ship and starts serving around 11:30. Hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, chicken, salad, cole slaw, potato salad and cookies. There are a few bars on the island if you desire an alcoholic beverage. You can relax, enjoy water sports or swim.
