All customers Beware before you sign their release forms for your photo CDs make sure to check your cd pictures because the pictures I bought are so bad they covered the dolphin blue lagoon bahamas . I ask them for replacements, they didn't give any, didn't give me refunds and worse of all person handling their FB account started calling... More

We just returned from Blue Lagoon and had a great time. We did the dolphin swim with Zoe, Princess, Abaco, and baby Louie. It was well worth it. The food vouchers we got supplied us with a ton of food. We found a nice shady place on the beach and just relaxed for the rest of our day.

I was on my mid semester break, marking was all done and I wanted to indulge in some R & R. What would I do without leaving home? Well I found the perfect adventure. I had received an blast promoting a resident's discount for the Dolphin Close Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island and thought…..I'd try something new. So on Friday,... More

Just came back from Bahamas, seen the dolphins. It was my first time so I didn't know what to expect . Thought it was interesting . Wish we could of spent more time in the water with the animal. But I think it's worth it. Next time I'll try actually swimming with them instead of just petting them.

My kids did this and my husband and I were observers which is a fee of $45 each (just to watch them)!!!! You have to take a 30 min ride to & from the place while in port at Nassau. The kids had so much fun. The cute dolphins were like kids themselves. I was wishing I had did the... More

My BF and I did the Dolphin Swim at Blue Lagoon and we're wowed by these beautiful creatures. I had done a similar program a few years back in Florida, but this one was in the open and on a beautiful private island. The dolphins were fun, friendly and smart. We couldn't stop smiling the whole time we were there.... More

Quite expensive for what it was. Spent almost as much time with dolphins as we spent in the classroom orientation. Neat experience but we expected more.

This was an excellent excursion for the family. The boat ride over to the island was great for sightseeing. The Dolphin Experience was informative and fun. The staff did a great job. There were also other activities and beaches on the island. The food was affordable as well. We were very impressed!

Me and my bf swam with the dolphins that played "flipper" in the 1995 movie and also the one they used for a Guns & Roses video. The whole program was educational, good for kids of all ages.
