What a great trip report from Seaislegal. thanks so much for those great photos! you guys really packed your vacations with activity. although my husband and I have been snorkeling on different islands in the carribean, it was mostly from a walk in entry. How "managable" is it to snorkel/dive from the boat? (like getting in and out) Also, what is cave tubing all about? sounds like fun, but bats??????? We're not oxygen thiefs (ederly), but we're not 20 either. how much energy will i have to expend????? i mean, bend the elbow i can handle!!!

Marty Online   happy
very easy to get in and out of the boats, cave tubing is not that strenuous, lay in the tugbe and float around, no huge rapics or anything!

Our cave tubing group had people ranging from 2 yrs old (he was carried the entire way) to people in theie 50's, maybe up to 60. I had some reservations going in but it wasn't that strenuous at all. The hike through the jungle was easy and the tubing itself was too. I thought my arms and shoulders were going to hurt because of all the paddling we did with our arms, but it was actually my legs that ended up killing me for 3 days afterward! It can get hot and steamy during the jungle walk and the visit to the zoo, but that's as hard as it got....well, sometimes getting out of the tube was interesting...

The cave tubing with SEAduced was great. I went last month. There are bats in the caves but they were all sleeping. It was cool to shine the light up and see them. The mini hike to the cave wasn't strenuous in the least bit. All and all, it was a great full day trip. I would highly recommend it.

Tami-

What kind of shoes did you wear for cave tubing. I was thinking of going and buying cheap tennis shoes....or, should I do more a TEVA-type walking sandle?

Thanks,
teacher

I was wondering about that before I went too. I actually bought the Teva's and I am so glad I did. I even found some on sale! The hike to the cave wasn't bad at all, so tennis shoes would be fine...however, you will keep your shoes on while you tube in the water. I am not too fond of wet, squishy shoes. The Tevas worked perfectly and they dried quickly. I wore them the entire day, which meant I didn't have to carry around an extra pair of shoes (another plus).

I wore my Tevas for the entire trip, I don't feel tennis shoes are necessary.

thanks guys for the heads up. sounds like we'll be doin' some snorkeling and cave tubing too!!! right now i'm trying to talk my friend peg and her husband into coming down with us. they'd be flying from boston though, a much different hike than from florida. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO ON VACATION! another question. my husband is a picky eater and his favorite foods are steak & potato (me, i like it all, and it shows!) from what i've seen on the menus on ac, seafood is the natural choice. will kenny get his steak fix on ac? thanks again!!!

That is the answer I wanted to hear...I hate squishy shoes too!

Was it really buggy? Did you wear your swimsuit with a cover up on the raft? Any suggestions on things to bring for that?

Gracias!
teacher
