Tender to Coco Cay, Bahamas

Good morning,

Today's images are of the tender ride between Freedom of the Seas and Royal Caribbean's private island, Coco Cay, Bahamas.

The port is too small to have a dock where the ship can tie up, so guests are tendered back and forth on small boats.
Here we're pulling away from the ship.  That's one of the security guards up there waving to us on board the tender boat.
That's another tender boat similar to the one where I am taking these pictures.  There are two tender stations to move guests quickly back and forth to the island where there will be a yummy picnic lunch served.

 This is a perfect change to get some great "ship shots!"


More images of the day at the beach to come.

The only ladder involved for tendering to shore is on board the tender boat. To move between the ship and the tender, there is a gangway that leads from the ship to the tender. Then, once on the tender, if you want to ride on the first tender deck, you go down a stairway. It is all quite easy and is wheelchair accessible.

Thanks for stopping by and for your very kind comments.
