We had a great time riding the boat to the island and seeing the dolphins. We enjoyed interacting with the dolphins. Our only regret is we did not have any time to hang out at the beach. Would love to visit again!

We opted for the dolphin encounter. The boat was teeming with people and I was concerned we might be waiting a while if all these people were here for the same thing. Once on shore, we watched an orientation about dolphins and marine conservation. Then we headed down to the water. We were immediately put into a group of about... More

My husband & I had a blast during our Dolphin Encounters experience at Blue Lagoon Island! The boat ride to the Island was beautiful & entertaining. Once we arrived at Blue Lagoon Island we went to a short but very informative dolphin education area. Next you are given a locker for your items then head to the water for your... More

We chose the Dolphin Encounter on Blue Lagoon Island while in Nassau on the Carnival Fantasy. Our ship docked at 8am and we had to quickly catch a cab to get the 8:30am boat to Blue Lagoon. I went with my children aged 11, 10 and 6. My husband came as an observer and to take photos. The 15 minute... More

My friend and I visited the Dolphin Encounters at Blue Lagoon Island during our cruise. First we had a great driving over the unbelievable clue ocean. The lagoon is amazing! We were very excited. First we learned something about the dolphins. How they live, what is important and what to think about, if you "meet" them. Then we went in... More

I have been to Nassau several times and always been curious about the dolphin encounter. It was worth every penny! After the dolphin encounter, the Blue Lagoon is a great place to hang out and sip on some rum punch.

My entire family and I have always dreamed of swimming with Dolphins and this attraction did not disappoint. The ability to be in the water with these majestic animals is not something we will ever forget. The experience was so great we bought the DVD so we can relive the memories for years to come. Highly recommend this attraction.

I lived in Nassau for almost 5yrs and I went to the Dolphin Encounter on my last day there. It really was great. The animals are brilliant and it's pretty amazing seeing them right up close. They really seem to enjoy the interaction with the people. I'm not a real fan of zoos, but this is different as they work... More

We just got back from Bahamas, while we were there we visited the dolphin attraction. These animals are well trained and they respond to human interaction beautifully. We touched, felt their silky skin, they even kiss us on the cheek. If you ever visit the Bahamas, you need to check it out.
