My husband and I swam with the dolphins and it was fabulous! We had trainer Ryan and he was great! He made sure we had pictures swimming, kissing and hugging the dolphins. We each had our own dolphin to swim with for about 20 minutes. Money well spent!

The dolphin encounter was wonderful and fun. The part I hated was the bus was late to take us there. I had asked when I walked up to the staff how long before the bus would arrive and they said 20 minutes. So we sat and waited. After the 20 min. was up I asked again and this time she... More

LOUNEXSO, General Manager at UNEXSO, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. I can only apologize regarding the bus delays and assume there were issues that day due to weather. Please note that boat captains conduct counts both ways and are not able to leave the dock until counts are relayed and confirmed to UNEXSO base. We apologize that you felt rushed and certainly hope you will... More

My husband and I did the dolphin experience on our honeymoon. I had done a dolphin swim before and it was nothing compared to this! Darnell and Melissa, the trainers, were so fun and entertaining and the Dolphins, Coral and Exuma, were great too. We felt part of everything that was happening even when it wasn't our turn in the...

Swimming with dolphins was such a wonderful experience, we were so lucky it was just the two of us and another couple scheduled so we had plenty of time to play with them and swim and got fantastic photos and a dolphin show for just us, the trainer and all the staff were great! I almost cried of emotion! Even... More

UNEXSO is a great company to dive with. Bunch of awesome people, very helpful on the boat. I did a reef dive one day and a shark dive the other. If you're a diver in the Bahamas, you HAVE to do the shark dive. Wore extra weights and sunk to about 30-40 ft and the dive master wore a chain... More

When in Freeport, I have breakfast here daily. The program is wonderful and all encompassing. The swimming with the dolphins program is the best, this gets kids into the water with the dolphins and it is absolutely wonderful

Third time diving with Unexso and it was great again! Ladies at front counter were more than helpful to our experienced divers and also to the two that were "resort" diving for the first time. Boat staff go above and beyond to help. We also did the shark dive for the second time and it was better than the first... More

I went on the Discover Scuba 1-tank dive for beginners with instructor Sarah Barrett, who was amazing. The entire class was just me, my boyfriend, & another couple who had all never dived before. We had a half hour of classroom training, which wasn't even boring, & training in the pool before we went out & honestly, even if that... More

My husband and I recently got PADI certified so this was our first "real" dive. The staff was fantastic- the rental gear was in great condition, ride was smooth to the dive spot and our guides were professional and helpful. I felt very prepared with the run down before the dive and our guide made sure we went down slowly,... More
