We went here as a shore excursion from a cruise. The Dolphin Encounter served as a "Just to say we did it" experience. If you go into the water with the dolphins, you will pay...a lot. If you out of the water to watch your kids play.... you'll pay for that as well. For what I paid, I was briefly... More

I met with dolphin's and I can't even swim! You stand on a ramp which keeps the water up to your chest or even lower depending on your height. You can choose from 2/3 different encounters with seals or dolphins and really get some awsome memories.

If you have never touched or got close to a dolphin and can't swim well this is the trip for you. We had a great day out.

We had a great time and everything was well done. I would have to agree about the expensive add-ons and everything was an add-on. It was sad because the water was so cold, my 4yo son would not go in the water and hence I could not go in the water. :( Not their fault.

My husband and I spent the day at Blue Lagoon yesterday, having booked a Sea Lion encounter. It was wonderful!!!! We took an earlier boat taxi to the facility and spent an hour on the GORGEOUS beach before our encounter with Jack the sea lion. The sea lions are less popular than the Dolphins; there were only 3 in our... More

We did the dolphin encounter in Nassau. The dolphin that we had was great! The handler we had was very good with the dolphin and you can tell that they really care about their health and well being. We had a short program at the beginning to give us an overview of the animals and how most of them got... More

We are a family of 5 (33,29,5,3,1) who paid for 3 travellers, seeing as the youngest 2 were free. I booked the dolphin encounter tour which. Getting there was okay. Huge ferry taxi, and maybe 10 of us on there. I couldn't figure out why the boat was so empty. Upon arrival we were bearded to the encounter part of... More

We did not have good weather the day we were scheduled in port on our cruise. We decided to attempt the Dolphin Encounter anyway & were really glad we did. The trainer was amazing, and we could not believe how truly UP CLOSE we got to the dolphin. We even touched his tongue & teeth!! It was lively fun and... More

I booked the excursion online a while in advance. We walked to the ferry, checked in, got our wristbands and waited for our ferry. We got on and after like 15-20 min ride we got to blue lagoon Island. We got a short brief and headed to the lockers to put our stuff away. You basically sitting on a square... More

This was the only excursion that we decided to purchase on our carnival cruise, we were not disappointed! The weather was perfect, the beach was beautiful, the dolphins were lovely! We enjoyed interacting with the dolphins and stingrays. The boat ride to the private island and back added to the joy of the day. Well worth the money (was 89... More
