 GSC01 - Fate of the Fancy Snorkel Adventure - At Leisure - Great Stirrup Cay,Bahamas
   Get set to discover the underwater secrets of an old shipwreck on “The Fate of The Fancy” snorkel trail, a fascinating exploration of marine wildlife that also serves to illustrate the fate suffered by the 17th-century buccaneer, Lord Chevalle. His ship, The Fancy, is said to have fallen foul of a huge octopus-like sea monster – called a lusca – that dragged it to the depths of the sea just off the coast of Great Stirrup Cay. Since then, the wreck and various “outposts” such as a piano, cannons, swords and even some treasure chests have become home to a large variety of aquatic wildlife, which the 17-station underwater trail will give you plenty of opportunity to explore, regardless of whether you’re a novice snorkeler or seasoned expert. Please note: participants must be able to swim. Snorkel equipment is included in the price of the tour.

 Have some fun with your family and/or friends, give yourself a chance to stretch your legs and get some gentle exercise, then form teams of two and race each other to nowhere in particular while seated in two-person pedal boats, each giving it the best in pedal-power they can muster.

 GSC11 - Paddle Boat (Quad Occupancy) (.5 hrs) - Great Stirrup Cay,Bahamas
 Make up your very own “fab four” with family and friends, then get on a self-propelled paddle boat and have fun making it move with nothing more than muscle power. Give it all you’ve got and see how far you can go in the allotted time, or take it easy and do just enough to keep you going. Whichever pedal-boat experience you prefer, your half hour on the water promises both to deliver a splendid time amid gorgeous views and yield some nicely toned calf muscles to boot. A chance to cool down and relax then awaits you back on the ship.

 GSC13 - Hippo Water Slide (All Day) - Great Stirrup Cay,Bahamas
 As the name implies, the Hippo Water Slide is shaped in the form of a hippopotamus. But what the name fails to reveal is the sheer enormity of the inflatable slide, which measures about 40 feet in height and 175 feet in length – dimensions that have earned it the accolade of “the world’s largest inflatable water slide”. Armed with a pass to the slide for an entire day, you’ll be able to whizz all the way down the structure – as high as a three-storey building – time and time again. Regardless of your age, when you squeal with delight on your slippery way down, the child in you is sure to be giving you a heartfelt high five. Please note: guests must be at least42 inches in height to participate.
