This activity was the greatest experience. The trainer was funny and accommodating of individual strengths and weaknesses. The Dolphins were so well trained that I was certain that the dolphin was actually hugging me! This is a MUST DO for anyone who loves the water!

We were staying at Atlantis Resort, but my daughter found Dolphin Encounters while searching TripAdvisor. Given the large number of positive reviews we decided to take a chance and try Dolphin Encounters instead of going for the Atlantis dolphin option. IT WAS THE BEST DECISION!! You can trust the positive reviews for sure!! Not only was it less expensive for... More

Did this excursion in July 16 from a cruise ship. Both Dad and Daughter went in to swim / interact with the Dolphins. First off, you take a boat from Nassau port to Blue Lagoon Island which takes you past some fantastic properties and scenery. The sea is the possibly the best we've seen and we've travelled a lot. You... More

Our first visit to Paradise Island included a visit to Blue Lagoon and the Dolphin Encounter! It was just great . The trainers were so personable and made everyone feel "special" during their time with the Dolphins. Kissing, dancing and petting them was fun. We are in our 70's so will probably never do this again so I am glad... More

Our family booked the dolphin encounter as a port adventure while stopping in Nassau on a Disney Cruise. We paid for three of us to do the encounter and one person to go and observe. It is fairly expensive, as most port activities are, but we found it a lot of fun. My husband and children got in the water... More

I was so excited to do this and was so disappointed. The money you spend for this activity is NOT worth it. The encounter is very little close to none. The best encounter is when you take the photos out of the water. This is something you can do when you get to the island and not pay $100. You... More

Def worth the trip! This was the cheapest way to swim with dolphins while in Nassau and it was def worth the trip. Sadly they don't let you take your own pictures with dolphins (you have to pay for it). The dolphins immediately greet you when you arrive on the dock and they are playful from the first to the...

Dolphin encounter was fantastuc. 2 dolphins in a large area with 8 of us. We each had ample time with the dolphins. We pet them, hugged them, danced with them and they gave us the famous dolphin push at the end. I dropped my wedding ring in the water and a swimmer came right over to dive in and find... More

Really worth the trip. It should be your first program once you leave the ship. Blue Lagoon is beautiful. The dolphin encounter is just Ok, do not pay more than US$110/person. That's the real price. People at Atlantis will charge you 135 and in the ship it will not be cheaper than 155.

We went to Dolphin Encounters last week while we were on a cruise. It was my wife and kids (ages 6 and 8), and myself. We did the Dolphin Swim. My Wife and I have done this before, in Mexico, but I was much more impressed with Dolphin Encounters and the entire experience on Blue Lagoon Island! My Son LOVES... More
