Cococay Bahamas is one of the most splendid islands of the whole country. When you think island paradise, a Coco Cay cruise is exactly what you are envisioning. Sitting on one of the many white sand beaches outside of the magnificent Perfect Day adventure park, you will hear children playing and the whistle of the wind as the sea breeze blows through your hair; the most vibrant turquoise waters you will ever imagine washing up on shore; lively marine life swimming under the sea. You can’t see it from the beach, but once you get into the water and wade through the perfectly clear sea, you will be able to see just how much life surrounds you. Your Coco Cay cruise will be leaving in the evening, but you kind of wish you could just stay. Cococay Bahamas island life is too good to be true.
Cococay Bahamas is located approximately 55 miles north of Nassau and is also known as Little Stirrup Cay. Cococay Bahamas is also one of the islands designated as part of the Berry Islands. It is less than a mile in circumference and can be walked in a matter of minutes. You can only visit the island as a part of a Coco Cay cruise with Royal Carribean as the island is owned by the cruise line. All the Cococay excursions are ran through Royal Caribbean Cococay excursions.
Whether it is Coco Cay snorkeling, experiencing larger than life frills and thrills at Perfect Day adventure park, or lounging at the perfect beach spot for the day, Royal Carribean Coco Cay is guaranteed to be exactly what you need. You will never run out of Cococay things to do which is why it has become a top destination for any Royal Carribean cruise. We will outline some of the great possibilities for your Royal Caribbean Cococay excursions in this article.
What to do in Cococay Bahamas (Little Stirrup Cay)
Cococay Bahamas was one of the first Bahamas islands to be leased by a cruise company to be used exclusively for guests of individual cruise lines. We have listed a few of the great Cococay things to do on this exclusive Royal Carribean island:
Free things to do in Cococay Bahamas
Not everything on a cruise excursion must be expensive. Matter of fact, Royal Caribbean makes it easy to save a few bucks on their famous Cococay Bahamas excursion day.
For example, don’t sweat buying lunch. The chefs on board prepare a complimentary BBQ lunch for the beach.
Feeling a bit of energy? There are walking trails along the shore and throughout the island which can be explored at your leisure.
And don’t forget, you can always find a beach chair to bask in the sun and enjoy the pristine waters surrounding the island for free. What kind of island day would it be if you didn’t enjoy the sand and sun for a while?
Shore Rental Excursions To Do
In addition to the free entertainment, Royal Caribbean also provides a plethora of activities to rent. For individual rates, you can rent anything from snorkel gear to kayaks to paddle boards and floating mats. Safety life vests and wet suits can also be rented for an additional charge.
All charges are made to your room so make sure you have your room key handy before you try to rent.
Royal Caribbean Coco Cay Main Attractions
Here is a bunch of things to do at Cococay Bahamas which you must pay to take part in the fun:
Caylana’s Castle Cove Aqua Park
Despite having beautiful crystal clear turquoise waters and white sand beaches with an underwater marine ecosystem thriving with exotic fish and colorful corals, Caylana’s Castle Cove Aqua Park is quite possibly Cococay Bahamas and Royal Caribbean’s pride and joy.
Featuring water trampolines, inflatable climbing structures and slides, and a plethora of ways to get your adrenaline pumping, Caylana’s Castle Cove Aqua Park is certainly a guest favorite and worth the price of admission.
The renowned SeaTrek water slide is a separate entity from the Aqua Park, however, standing at forty feet tall, Royal Caribbean claims it is one of the world’s tallest inflatable water slides. You can purchase a combo pass for both the park and SeaTrek at a reduced price using your cruising card.
Glass Bottom Boat Tours
One of the most unique ways to experience life below the sea in comfort is on a glass bottom boat tour which Royal Caribbean provides the opportunity to all of its passengers. Check out what is breathing under the sea around Cococay Bahamas and surrounding islands by taking a glass bottom boat tour where you can literally look at marine life going about life beneath you as you sit in the boat. If you are lucky, you may spot something really special swimming beneath the boat.
Jet Ski Tours
One of the most efficient ways at seeing what the island holds is touring around its waters at high speeds. Don’t worry — no jet ski experience? An expert will be there to give you a quick learning session before you take off. Then, they will be there to guide you and spread knowledge about the island every step of the way.
Parasailing Adventure Tours
For a chance to see the island from a different angle, Royal Caribbean offers the experience of a lifetime — parasailing above Coco Cay. To get a bird’s eye view 400-feet above the ocean, guests can soar through the ocean breeze and look down on the vibrant landscape.
Astronauts have been quoted saying there is no better view from space than looking down on the beautiful Bahamas. There is only one way to see for yourself!
Scuba Diving Adventure
For certified divers, the lively turquoise waters surrounding Cococay Bahamas has some excellent dive locations.
Don’t worry, though, even if you are not fully certified, there is still a chance you get to explore underwater at Coco Cay. Shallow dive excursions are available to those cruise passengers who can present a valid “C” certification card who have been diving in the past two years.
Coco Cay Snorkeling Adventure and Underwater Treasure Hunt
Royal Caribbean, like all cruise companies, rents snorkel gear to its passengers. The rental comes with a mask, snorkel, fins, and a life vest plus professional instructions if needed. The cruise line has also hidden treasure tokens underwater and for the lucky snorkelers who find the buried treasure, they can redeem their findings at the Snorkel Shack for a wide selection of prizes.
Whether or not you find the hidden treasure doesn’t really matter. You will be rewarded with an experience teeming with marine life and you are sure to see things you never have before — especially during fish feeding. The treasure hunt is fun for kids, though, and can keep them entertained while you track down different species of exotic sea life.
Power Wheels Track
Royal Caribbean has done a fine job at providing a space for young children on the island with their Fisher Price sponsored Power Wheels track. Parents can bring their young to race around the track with Power Wheels and let the kids entertain themselves. It can give Mom and Dad a much needed break.
Florida to Bahamas Air Charter
While it isn’t possible to visit Cococay Bahamas unless you are cruising with Royal Caribbean, you can go on a Bahamas day trips by plane with Bahamas Air Tours to other amazing islands. You can take a Miami to Bahamas day trip, leaving in the morning and returning from your day trip to Bahamas in the late evening. Or when your Royal Caribbean Cruiseline stops over in Nassau, you can booking one of our popular Swimming Pigs tours to Staniel Cay from Nassau.
