, a collection of cays and small islands and is located approximately 55 miles north of Nassau
. The island is less than a mile (around one kilometer) wide from east to west and less than a 200 yards (meters) from north to south. The east end is the center of recreational activities with beaches fronting a coral
basin where manatee
, and numerous fish
can be seen. There is a rocky inlet on the north side of the island large enough for the tenders
to operate from. Nature trails run the entire length and width of the island.
The island was previously used by Admiral Cruises (which was later acquired by Royal Caribbean) which renamed it CocoCay.Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
, which owns Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Cruises, leased the island and renamed it "CocoCay", one of the first cruise lines to lease islands for their exclusive use. Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruise ships frequently anchor off the island and bring passengers ashore by tenders. Activities available to guests include swimming
, scuba diving
, and Waverunner
piloting. Royal Caribbean extends its children's programs onto the island including a Fisher-Price sponsored Power Wheels
track for young children.
