Water purse/bag?

I am looking for suggestions. What have you cruisers done when snorkeling/swimming with your bags (esp. on excursions). We have special dietary need / medical needs so I will need to have a bag with me. Western Caribbean cruise - do I need to be concerned? Do you guys know of waterproof bags? I searched online but was not happy with what I found. Do most excursions have lockers? Thanks for any input.

Whenever I do excursions that include snorkeling or swimming, my bag only has my clothes and towel in it. I always have a waterproof fanny pack or case that I put my money and credit card in and wear on me. The waterproof fanny pack I got from Water Country and the case I bought from Aulani(you can probably find them at any water park). Some excursions will have lockers and some won't. If lockers are provided, they are usually listed in the excursion write up. If you are on a boat, everyone just leaves there bag wherever they are sitting and goes about their business. I have never had a problem(even at Castaway Cay), but as I said, I always keep my money on me.

I concur with abdgeek. I usually go on scuba diving excursions and I do bring a small backpack with me but I careful not to leave anything valuable with me. I always check it before I get off the boat I've never had a problem. I am not sure how big a waterproof bag you need but you can always use ziplock bags.

There were some threads on here a couple months ago about people having stuff stolen from CC and other places. I saw KYSS bags in one of them and ordered one for us. It will at least provide some security for my camera on the beach.
