This excursion was one of our all time favorites! The dolphins are amazing! The staff/trainers are very entertaining and make the encounter very memorable. The experience is well worth the money. The encounter lets you hug, kiss, dance, and pet the dolphin. For $70 more, you can swim with them. Amazing!

We had the great pleasure of attending the dinner cruise and show with Dolphin Encounters. It was absolutely incredible. The boat ride there was wonderful, the food was fantastic and the entertainment was fantastic. The staff are welcoming and hospitable and make every guest treated like a VIP. I would like to give special thanks and recognition to Estelle Major... More

Visited Dolphin Encounters at Blue Lagoon Island on July 10, 2015 and had a great time learning and swimming with the dolphins. We purchased the more expensive excursion through the cruise line so that we were able to do more things with the dolphins, including the dolphin foot push across the lagoon. The dolphins, as well as their trainers, were... More

This experience surpassed my expectations in every way! The staff was excellent, which only made it better.Your experience starts with a 15 minute orientation about the dolphins themselves, and how and how not to handle them. You are then assigned an experience area, where each family group gets a kiss photo with the dolphin. You are then broken into groups... More

Loved the Island and very relaxing. We chose to do the Dolphin Encounter and it was over the top! The first time I went, my Dolphin didn't carry me very far, probably because my legs would not be still long enough, and at the end they were kind enough to let me redo my turn and success!!! Ask about baby... More

We decided to visit Dolphin Encounters instead of the dolphin area at our hotel (Atlantis) b/c it was MUCH cheaper. We had a wonderful time with Kevin (the trainer). He took the time to make sure our children had plenty of one on one time with the dolphins and great photo opportunities. We didn't feel rushed and he was hilarious.... More

On this cruise, this was my wife's favorite attraction. The only problem we had was, when the excursion was over and we were being taken back to the ship, the boat operator felt he needed to stop at other islands to take the employees home first. This caused us to almost miss our ship.

We were in Nassau on a cruise and found these reviews to be better than the reviews for the dolphins at Atlantis (Fyi, once we got back on the ship everyone said Atlantis Dolphins we not worth the money). It was amazing!! Took a scenic boat ride to an island and swam with the dolphins in a natural lagoon, not... More

We chose this as a once in a lifetime excursion. It was a fabulous experience! Never have we been that close to a dolphin...it was amazing and very informative too. A perfect family event!

We did both the Dolphin Encounters and the Blue Lagoon Beach Day. The dolphins were amazing and the trainers were outstanding! We got a great picture of the 4 of us that will be a lasting memory. The beach side area was amazing - something for each of us. Water/bounce houses, floating water slides, kayaks, snorkeling, plenty of shade to... More
