Tranquility. Excitement. Natural beauty. Whatever paradise you seek, you can soak it all in on Norwegian’s private island, Great Stirrup Cay. From an exhilarating zip line over pristine waters and snorkeling a unique underwater sculpture garden to reclining at the all-new, exclusive Silver Cove – featuring a private beach and lagoon, Mandara Spa and luxurious villas – you can do it all, or nothing at all, on The Greatest Cay.

 

Discover Big Thrills

Take thrills to new heights on one of our two exhilarating courses where you can zoom through the air for up to 2,935 total feet of zip line and scramble over V-net bridges and chimney climbs. You can choose to soar 400 feet above the ocean in tandem while being towed by a parasail boat and get a bird's eye view of paradise. Or feel the wind in your hair during an exciting 45-minute guided tour on wave runners past some of Berry Island's iconic sites, including the Lighthouse at Great Stirrup Cay, Slaughter Harbor and the abandoned island community of Cistern Cay.

Dive into the sapphire waters and snorkel around playful statues of mermaids, sea creatures, fountains and urns where colorful marine life have made their home in our unique underwater sculpture garden. Wave hello to passing tropical fish and the occasional manatee as you enjoy a leisure paddle board or guided kayak tour through shallow clear waters.
