Be Forewarned - While you do get to touch a dolphin, everything is staged to produce photos for sale at the end of the event. You will: Attend an orientation that you may or may not be able to hear. Walk down a ladder to a submerged platform where you will bend down and the dolphin will put its nose... More

My only concern is that I purchased the best photo package at $170.00 which included a computer chip to view photos and video, but it doesn't work. As soon as I got home I tried to load but the chip didn't fit into any of our computers except my small lap top which would not open the photos. I'm now... More

This was the highlight of our vacation. My daughter still talks about it. The staff are very knowledgable and friendly. They are environmentally sound and also do lots of education outreach.

We visited the Dolphin Encounter while in Nassau over the Christmas break. I had my mother and wife with me for this and we were treated like gold! We had our own session with the dolphins which seemed quite rare. There was another group of multiple people (10-15). We had the tank all to ourselves which provided ample time with... More

The encounter involves a 30 minute boat ride from Paradise Island to a private island. Besides the Dolphin Encounter, there is a bar, beach and other water activities. It is a nice place for adults or children. Recommend it highly, The entire staff from booking, office and boat trip were very nice, friendly an cordial

we did the "Swim with dolphins" experience. It was great. Got to touch and hug the dolphins and have them push us through the water. We picked up a 10% off coupon in the airport so look for that as you enter the country at an information desk.
