We had an amazing time staying at Atlantis, however this trip was the highlight of our holiday a fantastic time in a magical place. Swimming with the dolphins is something you never forget they are incredible creatures. well worth the money and the boat trip just adds to the day

Love love love this place. You have a enjoyable boat ride from Atlantis to blue lagoon island. When we arrived we were greeted by staff. Went to a short information class then we were divided into groups to go meet the Dolphins. The staff were great, friendly and full of information. You could tell they have a love for the... More

The boat ride to Blue Lagoon was a great way to see some beautiful scenery outside of our resort. It was a relatively short ride there. The dolphin encounter itself was incredible and definitely worth doing, but it is a very short period of time for the amount of money paid. Registration was a bit of a disaster. They were... More

While we were on a royal Caribbean cruise to the beautiful Bahamas we decided to book a dolphin encounter when in Nassau and it was the best money ive spent and experience.

I thought this would be a quick 5 min. photo op occasion, but we really got to spend a lot of time with the dolphin, Shaun. We were able to hug him, kiss him a few times dance while holding his fins, and pet him many times. The trainers are great and make sure the animal is safe at all... More

Amazing experience and great time. Dolphins are playful like puppies, intelligent and fun. Unique feeling of communicating with creatures that are totally different from us but, nevertheless, somehow amazingly human. No physical challenge or swimming skills required. Half an hour in the waist high crystal clear water. Great for all ages, including small kids and seniors. Cons: rocky bottom, rubber... More

We visited in jan 2013 and choose the one at blue lagoon over Atlantis. It was an awesome choice. Much smaller set up, and lots of time with the dolphins. They do a great job and have a small private beach.
