Our life jackets were attached to our tube during the walk. We wore our helmets on the walk and this was good because we walked through a cave. The life jackets were average size life jackets.

Here's a picture of the life jackets. We wore our life jackets and helmets during the walk. We didn't carry our tubes with .bz (someone from their staff went way ahead of us and took them for everyone that day and they were waiting on us when we arrived where you get in to the water). You don't have to wear them and can carry them if you wanted, but it was just easier to wear them and be hands free.

You are so well informed. Thanks for your info. Can a 7yo have a tube to herself?

Thanks and you're welcome. I'm not sure if they have an actual age or height that they have to be in order to be able to do it themselves. But, I would imagine it would be how comfortable you would feel having them go on one by themselves. The tubes are attached to each other, so you would be right there with your little one. I'm thinking I read somewhere on here that others have had their 7-8 year olds go on a tube by themself.

Our 7 year old just cavetubed last week with cavetuberus. David was awesome and she loved him by the end of the day.

My 5 year old (may have still been 4 on that day, his BDay was during the cruise) was able to go in his own tube last year. We used VIV and their tubes had bottoms not just an open hole (I think many/most operators have tubes like this now) so it wasn't a problem at all.

Note, we have tall kids so he was 48" at his 5th birthday if that matters. I never saw anyone measure him, but I seem to recall something about that on one of the posted signs.

THanks, this gives me hope. I'm not sure if Bz. has the mesh bottoms....but I will find out very soon. We cruise in 3 days!!!
