Spent $500 for 4 of us to do this excursion. Was made to wait 90 minutes in a hot building with life jackets on before going into the water with the dolphins. Dolphin encounter lasted. 25-30 min then we were rushed back to the ferry boat. Also, we could not take pictures but instead had to purchase their photos for... More

We booked before we went to Bahamas. It was an amazing experience. It was my family's first time as well. We also met Flipper from the movie. We got to touch, kiss, and hug the dolphin Salvatore that we interacted with. They took pictures and recorded us. Something everyone should do. I definitely will do this again. Very safe and... More

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
