Here is a brief tour of the Flippers & Fins facility as well as another look at the signage.

Time was not on my side to allow for snorkeling during my day at Lookout Cay, so I will not have any actual snorkeling footage until I return for my next visit. For now, I will leave you with the description of the snorkeling from Disney Cruise LIne’s Port Adventure:

Prepare to be captivated as you snorkel amid exotic sea life between leisurely beach breaks soaking up sun and fun.

Dive into an unforgettable adventure as you explore the vibrant underwater world of Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, surrounded by schools of tropical fish and other mesmerizing marine life. Prepare to be captivated by the natural beauty and wonder that await you beneath the surface. 

I love to snorkel, and so does the rest of the family. The underwater world is so dynamic, and repeat trips to the same spots always offer something new. Since I was a little kid, I’ve spent countless hours during past vacations snorkeling and I cannot wait to return to Lighthouse Point to head out into the water and see the marine life. While I am not sure how deep the swimming/snorkeling area gets at high tide, I was bummed to hear the lifeguards yelling at guests telling they them they were not permitted to dive underwater while snorkeling. The rule is clearly listed on the safety sign, but it caught me off guard on the beach before I made it over to Flippers & Fins and read the safety information.

Did you have a chance to snorkel at Lookout Cay? What did you think?
