Can you go on your own to Blue Lagoon without having to take a tour. We didn't want to be on a set time schedule and were wondering if it was possible to do this via ourselves. Or should we do the Marriot Cable beach resort, we are looking to have a beach day and then do Atlantis in the evening.
You have to take one of the tenders (the Clypso) over to Blue Lagoon Island and they run on a "fixed" schedule. If your not snorkeling it is only $27 for the transportation to and from the ship...what you do once you get to Blue Lagoon is your decision unless you opt to rent the snorkel gear. I enjoyed the 3 hours of beach time there! Tenders back to the cruise ships leave at 1:30, 3:00 and 4:30 is the last run. Hope this helps.
Cable Beach is nice, but your behind a cluster of resort hotels there. I spent 5 days on Cable Beach one year and did enjoy it! However, Blue Lagoon Island is a small private island off the coast and the beaches are MUCH less populated if you prefer to have your own space! I don't think you will be disappointed in either just depends on your preference. Enjoy!!!
Len, so the botton line is that I would have to take a tour to get there or can I easily get there on our own taking some sort of water taxi ? I just want to get our plans together before getting on the ship.
Barb, it's not a TOUR. I don't know the cost of getting to Blue Lagoon on your own, but you will be on the same tender (Clypso). It was $27 booked thru Carnival's shore excursion desk. You get transportation to and from Blue Lagoon and a comp. rum punch on the way over. Once you get to the island your on your own! Did you check their web site out?
