These trained dolphins are playful and friendly, specializing in giving visitors a ride on the "dolphin surf," where one of these gentle creatures pushes you through the water with their snout.

Went to Blue Lagoon Island in December 2014 via tender boat. We were staying at the Melia and arranged for a trip to Dolphin Encounters. Dolphin Encounters was just great (although a little expensive) but the surprise of the day was free access to the AMAZING beach of Blue Lagoon Island. The waters were a light crystal clear aqua, the... More

An amazing experience for every age to interact with these intelligent mammals. I loved it. It is much better than the Dolphin Cay at the resort. When we went as a family in 2002, this was the only way you could swim with the dolphins. I guess I am loyal because it is the only way to do it. The... More

We went for a day visit as part of the Disney Cruise land excursion. We didn't choose the Atlantis because we have been there before and wanted to try something new. The Blue Lagoon was just OK and the bottomline was that our family left after spending only 3 hours or so on premise as it wasn't really for us.... More

This was our second trip to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. The first time (at the resort) we were only able to do a "shallow" water swim (which wasn't even a swim more like a pat on the head) because my daughter is only 9 and wasn't old enough. So the second time (she was still only 9) we... More

This was a great day away from the hustle and bustle of Nassau. They give you a lot for lunch ( included) and the frozen drinks were fantastic and a great price.

We booked this before heading to Paradise Island as a family day based on the reviews. We loved it!!!! It was a great full day of fun. Lunch was included and it was good. We went on a non-cruise ship day it we enjoyed it all to ourselves. The boat ride out and back was really enjoying and the views... More

Day trip was from Paradise Island to Blue Lagoon - we had the waist-deep dolphin experience, the trainer was very knowledgeable and the dolphin was very entertaining with his tricks, splashes etc. Highlights was the dolphin Hugs and Kisses as we were sharing the water with him.

I have never had so much fun in a short time! The trainer decided to let my husband "have it" - so the dolphin sprayed water all over him and shook his head "no" .... eventually came back and made friends - all part of the show. This was worth every penny that it cost, and you have to get... More

This is by far the best spot in the Bahamas. Away from all the resorts and cruise people, you actually get to relax and enjoy yourself. There were many points were we had the whole stretch of beach to ourselves!
