We just returned from our third visit to Atlantis. We had done the slides, the beach, etc. but never the Dolphin Encounter. We donned wet suits(they even have 3xx size) and entered the water with our dolphin trainer. We kissed, hugged and fed the dolphin. It is the most wonderful experience!

I was in Nassau on a cruise and was so glad I went my own way and booked this trip! I was a little apprehensive about faxing my credit card number, but everything went smoothly! It was a $4.00 per person cab ride from the cruise terminal to reach the ferry location. Check in was a breeze and we went... More

First of all I want to say that the whole swimming with dolphin experience was amazing- great staff and wonderful Dolphins.it was a very professional and unique experience. However the trip itself was very expensive and can be done in other resorts around the world at half the price. Also check your souvenir DVD carefully before purchasing it as ours... More

This was a lot of fun. These amazing mammals and their trainers have worked so hard. If you have children it's a great experience. Buy pictures it's worth it.

So much interaction with the dolphin. My 8 year old daughter was mesmerized. She wants to go back to the Bahamas just so she can see Cacique (the name of the dolphin she met) again. Great staff, felt very safe.

I had viewed the reviews and video of this experience before booking it through Carnival. We booked the encounter for our granddaughter and the beach day for my wife and myself. The facilities and the experience were even better than what was shown in the video. the people were gracious and welcoming. We were met at the ship by a... More

The dolphin experience was amazing; very informative and very well presented. The trainers have done an awesome job looking after the dolphins. Beware, I haven't gotten off the toilet after eating from their restaurants. I don't recommend their food at all. However, the whole nassau has really crap food that makes you sick and is over priced

My group of 6, 3 adults and 3 kids (8-10yrs old) all did the Dolphin Swim experience. The swim was more expensive than the encounter, but it is worth the extra cost. You get more time in the water with the dolphins and the dolphin push is exciting. My kids said the push was their favorite part. It was amazing!... More

This was a great way to spend a day on excursion off of cruise ship. Good time spent with the dolphins. You are allowed to take your own photos but of course, they sell theirs as well as video. Takes a while since it is a ferry ride to and from the cruise port.
