Norwegian Cruise Line adds three new interactive experiences to Great Stirrup Cay
Norwegian Cruise Line has added new interactive experiences to make visiting Great Stirrup Cay, its 250-acre private island in the Bahamas, even more memorable.
A Stingray Encounter and Fate of the Fancy Snorkel Adventure have already been introduced, and a third, Lighthouse Beach Ba,r presented by spirits brand Patron, will be arriving shortly.
The launch of these three experiences mark more exciting additions to the island as part of the ongoing $30m enhancement project.
Guests will be able to interact with 18 specially-trained stingrays in an enclosed area
Located inside Bertram’s Cove, on the right hand side of the main beach, the Stingray Encounter invites guests to interact with 18 specially-trained stingrays in an enclosed area. Each of the stingrays has a name and its own unique personality, and guests will enjoy feeding, watching and holding them, for the perfect photo opportunity.
Also included in the Stingray Encounter experience is use of a mask, snorkel and snorkel vest so that guests can peer below the surface to examine the rays up close. The hour-long excursion includes 45-minutes of interaction with the rays and is $29 per adult and $19 per child.
Norwegian Cruise Line is also launching a new snorkel trail experience called, Fate of the Fancy Snorkel Adventure, for guests to enjoy during their time on Norwegian’s private island. Snorkeling’ is one of the most popular activities on the island and Norwegian has now enhanced that experience with the snorkel trail.
Located near the Stingray Encounter in Bertram’s Cove, the Fate of the Fancy Snorkel Adventure is the first private island snorkel trail to depict an actual legend as it portrays the tale of a shipwreck.
Developed in conjunction with IDEA, an Orlando-based company with experience in developing theme park experiences, it features some authentic artifacts that are more than 300 years old. In addition, all of the artifacts are eco-friendly and will stimulate additional marine life in the area.
To experience the snorkel trail, guests can rent snorkel equipment at a rate of $29 per adult or $15 per child for the entire day. Guests wishing to experience both the Fate of the Fancy Snorkel Adventure and the Stingray Encounter during their time on the island can purchase a combination package that includes both tours at a discounted price of $49 per adult, a $9 saving, and $29 per child, a $5 saving.
