Touristy and crowded, but still a pretty beach. Arrive in the morning if you want to get a chair, and you can walk right by all the animals for free so unless you HAVE to get in the water with them, save your money. There’s...More

Hi leahb908. We are a tropical destination, but even in the tropics the water can be a bit chilly in the winter. Luckily, our lagoon water stays quite warm year round because it is protected! We are glad that you explored the island and ventured...More

Hi there. You can absolutely head over on the same ferry and your husband can even watch your program from the dock! Blue Lagoon Island is entirely wheelchair accessible. Just ask our staff if you need any assistance.

we did the booze cruise, island world adventures, and some deep sea fishing last year and really had a great time on all of them. there's also sea island adventures, powerboat adventures and stuart's cove dive/snorkeling trips. all have websites or you can pick up info when you get to the hotel. most of them save you an extra 10% if you book online before you go, but when you get to the airport there are maps and magazines that give you coupons. walk up the street to the wyndham and visit the...More

Is there a web site available to find out more information about the dolphin encounter or Blue Lagoon Island. We would like this info before we go, in case the tour gets booked up.
