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

My friends and I chose to do the Dolphin Encounters excursion as a part of our cruise vacation last week. It was the highlight of the trip!!!! 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

It was truly memorable. the finale was when 2 dolphins pushed each of the participants... it made you feel as if you were... More

If there is anything better than the dolphin encounter then I will need to experience. It was awesome. From the dancing to the kissing to the hugging.. I will definitely take my future children there. It covers any experience Disney can give, coz I felt like a child again. If you visit Bahamas without having a dolphin encounter then u... More

This was a very well organized operation. Our children did the dolphin excursion and we observed. They had a good time and we enjoyed watching them interact with Shawn, the dolphin, and his handler -- who was very funny. Afterwards we went over to the lagoon to swim and hang out for awhile. I believe of the three dolphin excursions... More

We got off our cruise ship and took a taxi to the ferry terminal on a raise island. First you get a nice ferry ride over to Blue Lagoon Island. The little island was nice with plenty of shady palm trees and beautiful little cove to swim and snorkel in. This is a good place for kids to swim in... More
