    On Castaway Cay, they offer two packages for rentals. One includes a float, snorkeling equipment and one hour of bike rental. The second includes all of the first package plus the stingray experience. Does anyone know if the second package limits the snorkel gear to the time spent with the stingrays or if you can use them all day? The reason I ask this is that the stingray package alone only includes the snorkel gear for the time you are there (that is you can't take the gear and snorkel in other areas).

    You can use the snorkel equipment for the entire day. If you do the stingrays first, you will just get the snorkel mask so you'll need to stop by the stand (right beside the stingrays) to get your fins. You can take your ticket to get the bike/floats at any time.

    I recommend doing the whole thing. We did the stingrays at 10, then snorkeled for 2+ hours, then ate, then biked, then collapsed - I mean floated- until the end of the day, which was about 6 hours too short! It was, by far, my favorite day.

    We had the package. We did the 1:00 stingray so we got the snorkel earlier in the day and then forgot to bring it over with us so they just used a separate mask and fin at the stingray (with no problem or extra cost)

    We did the whole package. I enjoyed riding the bikes, DH didn't. DH snorkled, I didn't and we both used the floats. The package was worth it.
