Just was there Saturday. It was very, very, very, refreshing... We went straight to Pelican plunge, made ourselves do the 'shoulders in', climbed aboard, hit the slide and after that was fine. My sister wore a wetsuit for our Nassau swim. that was quite cold too. You can still adjust to it though. It seemed to me like Castaway was cooler than Nassau... still great though. We were hot and had just played volleyball so it was refreshing.

I was there one week ago today. The water was slightly cold when you first got in but was fine for swimming in just a swim suit, no wet suit for me. My 8-year-old also went swimming and had no complaints. Air temp was in the 80s although it was windy enough to cancel parasailing.

We were there on Tuesday. It was very nice! We decided it was the best weather of our 4 visits to Castaway Cay. Sunny all day--warm and the water felt great. Didn't take much to get used to at all. The water isn't warm yet--but if it's a decent day, very comfortable.

I was just there last week. The water was cool, but once I got in, I got used to it quickly and it felt refreshing. The air temperature was nice and hot, so the cool water felt great.

We were there on Wednesday and it was BEAUTIFUL - warm - upper 80s - and the water temperature was refreshing but not cold. Definitely not as warm as we've felt on our July cruises but everyone was in it - felt great.

Was there on Tues (4/16). Cold at first but very nice after your body adjusts. And I hate being cold.

Yikes-I did not expect water to be that cool. No way will my body adjust 68 degree water, I struggle with an 80 degree indoor pool At least it will be warmer then home- we are from north east but admittedly whimps lol(DH and I both had long sleevs on yesterday on a breezy 75 degree day.) Refreshing water= BRRRR
Wonder how warm the ships pool would be?
