We did a snorkel trip to the reef on the "bootlegger" and a dolphin experience trip. The snorkel trip was well worth the $50 a person. They offered free drinks and were way nicer than the people at our resort. The trip lasted approximately 3/4 hours. Part of that time was under sail to see the coast. The dolphin experience... More

Nice clothes and some really different trinkets. They have dive equipment if you forgot anything and they can even certify you in their deep pool. The bar and restaurant has great food.

My kids did the dolphin swim an it was so fantastic. They got to be in the water with the dolphins for well over 30 minutes. All the people were very nice and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this company and the dolphin swim. A few of us did the dolphin encounter and that was also interesting and a good... More

Really can't rate the overall location and set-up of this dive center highly enough - it is exceptional with cafe bar, changing rooms, showers and 5m deep pool. All dives are boat dives and your walk to the boats will take you... ohh, if you're slow, around 15 seconds. Good range of dives on offer and as ever the waters... More

This was by far the most beautiful vacation experience that I have ever encountered. Staff were friendly and work well with the dolphins. They are well cared and happy. Interact with the guests and liked to have their bellies rubbed. Everyone gets a kiss. Could do this everyday.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Grand Bahama!! We did the dolphin encounter and at $85 per person it was so well worth it. Be careful to book through Unexso as some "tour" places up the price a few bucks, why spend more even if it's a little? It all adds up. You start with a... More
