Castaway Cay activities...can you book once onboard?

I was wondering if you can book any port activities for Castaway Cay once you're actually onboard or is that too late? I'm thinking the snorkel/bike/float package, for example? Thanks!

Yes you can. As long as they have availability, you can book it then.

If they're not all booked up, yes.

They typically have some availability even if it shows sold out. Some packages however are only available online, like snorkel/tubes/bike combos.

In any case you want to stop by the activities desk first thing you board...

Are we able to bring our own snorkel equipment to Castaway Cay

Just wondering if we can bring a couple of snorkel sets for the kids in our checked luggage and use at Castaway Cay?

Yes, you can. You must, however, use one of the inflatable vests that Disney provides while snorkeling. You can pick them up at the snorkle equipment shack. No charge.

If all you are interested in are floats, snorkel equipment, and/or bikes, there is an advantage to waiting. You can get them on the island and if the weather isn't good or someone changes his/her mind, you aren't stuck paying for the equipment.
