My wife and I swam with dolphins once before so we opted to "observe" our 2 adult daughters this time. I wish we had done it since the program was different than others, especially the dolphins "pushing" people through the water at great speed! But probably just as well since it's still quite pricey for a family of four. Some... More

We booked this adventure before leaving on our cruise. It was the best part of the entire trip. The staff was very friendly and the dolphin encounter is a memory that will last a lifetime! We were able to dance with the dolphin, feed it, hug it, touch it and even kiss it. Yes, it even kisses you. We laughed... More

Having already participated in a dolphin encounter at Atlantis, I booked this excursion as the highlight of our stay in the Bahamas with friends. We were not disappointed, we all had an amazing experience and I heartily recommend it to all. It is a far superior experience to what we had at Atlantis three years ago.

My family of five booked this excursion while on a Disney cruise that stopped in Nassau. It was definitely pricey, but I can now say was worth every penny. My boys are 14, 11, and 10 and all were very excited to do this. Since 2 of the kids were under 12, an adult had to do it with them,... More

Of all the places we visited, Blue Lagoon at Dolphin Encounters was the only place in the Bahamas that literally had me saying "WOW." Pictures really don't do it justice. The lagoon is like a piece of paradise within paradise! The dolphin encounters were mind blowing and educational. The trainers really showed passion for their work and pride in the... More

My family and I lived dolphin encounters at Blue lagoon island. I did the dolphin encounter and my husband was just an observer, and my 20 month old son was free admission. The ferry ride there was about 20 minutes and the captain was very nice to point out several touristic points on the ride to the lagoon. When we... More

We learned a few things about dolphins and had the privilege to interact with Shawn the dolphin and meeting his friend and trainer Rodrico. Both were awesome!!! We enjoyed the tricks Shawn did...

We've always had a dream to swim with dolphins & lucky for us, we were on a cruise that went to Nassau, so we booked at Dolphin Encounters. It was an amazing experience! The excursion started with a boat ride to Dolphin Encounters' island. The people on the island were so incredibly nice. I loved being able to take my... More

So, I must say it has been a dream of mine to swim with the dolphins for many many years. My husband and I just spent 6 days in Nassau and PI and decided to give it a shot. Many of the reviews talk of how expensive it is, and how costly the pictures are, but I have to say,... More

My daughters love dolphins so, of course, for our vacation they wanted to swim with the dolphins. I compared this one to the Atlantis swim. I chose this one with their help since it is in a natural setting rather than a man made pool. I am glad I did. We were in the water with the dolphins for about... More
