“Best part of our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This was the one thing my daughter and I wanted to do on our trip to the Bahamas. We are so glad we did it! These dolphins are so cool. I loved touching them, so different then I was expecting. The hug from the dolphin was the best! I would do this again in a heartbeat!

“Amazing, best tour we have ever done, loved it, loved it loved it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

My husband, 10 year old son and I from Australia thoroughly enjoyed our deep water swim at Dolphin Encounters at Blue lagoon. It is honestly, one of the best things we have ever done in the world! The dolphins were beautiful, funny and so were the trainers. We had 9 people in our group and we hugged, kissed and played with the dolphins the whole time in the water. The foot-push at the end was amazing!!!!!! All 9 of us were pushed out of the water by 2 dolphins the whole length of the enclosure and it was really amazing!!!Laughed and couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces the whole time, loved it! The enclosures were big and very natural. The dolphins are much loved, really happy and extremely well cared for. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone in the Bahamas', you wont be disappointed. We bought the video and photo's to bring home and show our family and friends. Well worth the price for the tour and photos to see such amazing animals, learn about them and how well they are cared for as the costs are going back to care for the dolphins on this gorgeous Island.

“Beautiful Paradise Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

We choose Blue Lagoon Island instead of Atlantis and it was the best decision! Swimming with the dolphins was sooo amazing. They live in their natural habitat (no swimmingpool). The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The only drawback are the prices of photos, videos and food! Here less would be more!

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This island is paradise. We were on a Bahamian cruise and chose to go here for our port adventure in Nassau. After a short, scenic boat ride through Nassau, and a 10 minute ride on the open water, we arrived at the beautiful BL island. You could either swim in the lagoon ( crowded ) or find an ocean beach on the outskirts of the island. We found a little slice of heaven in a cove with crystal clear blue water. Not many other people were there so it was very nice. Included in our admission was the use of noodles, tubes, and rafts. You can spend extra for the inflatable water park, or snorkeling. Lunch was good, and included home- made fruit punch. With our tour each person got two free soft drinks for the day. I highly recommend using them to get a bahamas goombay punch, a soda sold only in the bahamas. The island was beautiful and the employees were great, and I highly recommend the BL island.

“Dolphin Encounter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

In June 2013 we were on a cruise and chose to go to Blue Lagoon instead of Atlantis. We were very happy that we did. Water was beautiful, staff at the dolphin adventure was great. the only issue was after we did the adventure to view and purchase your photo's and video was complete confusion. We were not told we needed a ticket that marked our group time. Waiting for the pictures, it was so crowded with all the groups, you didn't know where to go. Also the price for the video and pictures. Those pictures mean nothing to no one else except to who they are of. They print them and bring them out for you to view and they are very expensive. Don't these places realize that people would buy more of them if they were fairly priced. They are just going to be destroyed if there not bought. Other than that, I would recommend this adventure. Also, for 3 burgers, French fries and 3 drinks was $45.00, so food also was expensive.
