    Cruise to Cozumel and Great Stirrup Cay.....any tips?

    My wife and I just planned a Caribbean cruise for us this spring, I plan on trying to take my metal detector pinpointer and scoop. It's Our 1st time on a cruise and my 1st time sand fishing in salt water. I think we get a couple days of downtime in Florida too.
    From the variety of comments I've read, I am wondering how much push back I may get from customs, getting on and off the boat, on the beach or in the water with a metal detector in either Cozumel or Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. Our time at the Port locations is during the daytime, 8am-5pm when the beaches will be more crowded, which is not ideal, but I have to try it. Sounds like I should pack goggles or a scuba mask too.
    Thinking of taking a back pack with the gear and assembling the detector on the beach? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    First: check the cruise line's band / restricted list. If metal detectors are on it...forget taking one.

    Second: Cozumel - there are no problems at the airport, I don't know about the docks - they should be the same.

    Third: For GSC, the island belongs to NCL, but comes under the Bahama law. I have no information for you from my searches. I would check with the cruise line.

    Wow! That was a great treasure trove of goodies! What turned out to be the most valuable? The coin ring? How many hours of sand fishing did you put in on that trip to Cozumel?
