Things To Do at Perfect Day at Coco Cay…
These activities are things you can do on Coco Cay for little to no cost and without any pre-planning or reservations.
If you bring your own snorkeling equipment to Coco Cay you can enjoy the undersea beauty of the private Bahamian island for little to no cost. Coco Cay does require that you wear a snorkeling vest (like an inflatable yellow life jacket) while snorkeling. If you don't have one to bring with you then you can rent one on the island for $10 per day. Be sure to also bring water shoes as the island is a coquina rock / coral formation and the bottom in the snorkeling areas is often rough and rocky. Key things to see are a sunken airplane and a replica of the pirate ship Queen Anne's Revenge.
Don’t forget to use reef safe sunscreen to protect the natural environment from damage by harmful chemical exposure. If you are unsure of where to get reef safe sunscreen we have linked to some here (reef safe sunscreen).
Oasis Lagoon is the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean and has three distinct coves. One is a relaxing area with pool loungers, one has the swim-up pool bar and loud music and the last one has a beach-entry area with spray up geysers, pool loungers and chairs and umbrellas. It is located near both the Chill Grill and Skipper’s Grill as well as the snack shack for you to get a bite to eat.
Captain Jill’s Galleon
Captain Jill’s Galleon is a Pirate ship run aground that provides a fun and refreshing adventure for all ages with water cannons, slides, cargo nets and a crow’s nest! This is one of the first things you will see when going ashore to the island from the cruise ship pier.
Splashaway Bay is a kids waterpark paradise where children under 42” in height. It includes a water based playground with water cannons, dump buckets, slides and more! Their are lifeguards throughout Splashaway Bay as well as Adirondack Chairs under umbrellas circling the outer edge of the playground for adults to relax and watch all of the fun being had in Splashaway Bay.
Enjoy the Beach
There are many lounge chairs waiting to be used, umbrellas ready to provide shade and hammocks waiting to be enjoyed in the beach areas of the island. If you kids want to enjoy playing in the sand with a bucket and shovel or to build a sand castle then you need to bring the sand pail and shovel with you as they do not provide them on the island. The swimming areas are supervised by lifeguards to ensure the safety of everyone enjoying the island.
While on Coco Cay you can enjoy a fun game of beach volleyball, Corn hole and even Ping Pong. For the less athletic types, simply take a nice gentle walk on the beach...
There are several areas on the island with numerous hammocks in the shade under palm trees. These are “Perfect” places to relax and maybe even catch some zzz’s!
