We had booked at Dolphin and Shark dive on our short stay. I guess the weather was too bad for the Dolphins. We did not get to do the dives, unlike previous reviews we could not reschedule:( We rolled right into a 2 tank dive with a great staff. The boat is big and can take a lot of people,... More

I always wanted to swim with the dolphins and I had the most amazing experience with my Mom at UNEXSO! Our dolphin trainer was extremely knowledgeable and had a great personality and our two dolphins, Coral and Cocoon, were adorable! I was happy to know that all the dolphins are well-cared for and are not forced to do anything they... More

Swimming with Dolphins has been a dream of mine for a long time and it finally came true on a trip to Freeport. The staff here were very friendly, knowledgeable, and ensured everyone in the group had a special experience. I walked away from the Dolphin Swim experience feeling as though it was money well spent. They do have a... More

I have enjoyed the Dolphin experience with my 6 year old daughter two times on separate cruises to the Bahamas. I highly recommend this very memorable opportunity. The first time we did this was in November 2013 as part of an organized cruise excursion. The second time was done in April 2014, and this time we went on our own... More

Thankful that it had ac! It was a good 20 minute boring ride to the facility where we then stood in line again to get checked in and wait... More

I have been on many excursions on many different islands and this is the most group enjoyed excursion I have ever tried. This excursion welcomes all ages and you leave feeling great! This dolphin encounter site actually takes their dolphins out to the open ocean 3-4 times per week. The trainers spoil these dolphins and guests! Can't ask for anything... More

This was the greatest experience. I have always wanted to do this. The staff was great and the best part is the Dolphins are not trapped in an enclosed lagoon, but have the freedom to swim in the sea if they so desire. I was like a kid in a candy shop swimming with them.

I had another good dive trip with UNEXSO. I have been there 2 other times and had good trips also. This dive was to Theo wreck that I wanted to get in this time around in GBI. Second dive was to the very interesting Ben's Blue Hole. Had a good time swimming around with the turtle that stayed with us.... More

Thank you to Captain Craig, Remy, and Dunlap. You guys made the snorkel adventure the best in the open sea. You took your time with the young boy that was having trouble and yet made the rest of the guest's feel as if they where the only one's on the boat. The reef was perfect the barracuda was a treat...
