TouringPlans has just released updated content for Castaway Cay port adventures for our Disney Cruise Line subscribers.

The most important takeaway is that many prices on the island have gone up substantially. While Castaway Cay excursions are relatively inexpensive compared to those on the other islands, increases of 25 to over 50% for most port adventures leave us asking if we’ve discovered the true pirates of the Caribbean.

Port Adventure Sample Prices
Adventure Old Price New Price
Bike Rental $6 $10
Snorkel Rental (adult) $25 $29
Wildside Teen Adventure $35 $45
Castaway Ray’s (adult) $35 $45
AquaTrike Rental $15 $24
Parasailing (adult) $79 $95

Castaway Cay Best Values

Best values on the island include Bike and Snorkel rentals, and Castaway Ray’s Sting Ray Adventure. For folks who want to double or triple up on activities, DCL offers package deals for bikes, floats, snorkeling, and the sting ray adventure that will save you money off booking everything separately. These package deals must be booked online or from the Port Adventures desk once you’re onboard. They can only be booked a la carte once you’re already on the island.

    Hey Laurel – thanks for the update! My husband wants to bring his own snorkel gear this next DC, do you know if we can just rent the vests from Disney and how much that would be?

      I believe vests are free by themselves. You can also rent fins only for a reduced price (since those would take up a lot of space in your luggage).

      Vests are provided free of charge. We ALWAYS bring our own gear. As a dive instructor, that is what I tell my students as well. $29 is an outrageous price to pay to rent snorkel gear. Your own gear fits you better and you know exactly who has had it in their mouth too! You can buy a decent set of mask/fins/snorkel for not much more than what you would pay to rent once.

      About 1/2 the price of the full package, I think – so around $15.
