Pelican Plunge at Castaway Cay HDR

Pelican Plunge is a 2,400 square foot floating platform which debuted in 2010.   There are two water slides, an enclosed corkscrew and a 140 foot long open-air slide.  Both versions will twist you around and launch you into the lagoon.  There water cannons with targets and a large bucket that slowly fills and periodically soaks guests awaiting their turn on the slides.

The water depth varies with the wind and tides, but is not nearly shallow enough to walk to the platform.  So, you will need to be able to swim to enjoy this attraction, or at least be able to swim with the aid of a life jacket.  Repeated rides will result in a nice workout!

It truly is a fun experience for all ages.
