“Best Experience Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

My family and I just got back for our first cruise to Nassau. We had a great time. Do not have one complaint. From the time we got to the port to the time we got off the ship everyone was great. We had so much fun. For are excursion we did the dolphin swim at Blue Lagoon on Paradise Island. They were great and very helpful with my elderly mother. She was in a wheel chair and they took great pains to make sure she seen everything as an observer to our swim. Great experience we all had a blast.

“So Fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We did the Dolphin Encounter and it was worth every penny. We were pleased and surprised at how much interaction we got with Andy the dolphin. Everyone got to do everything - hugging, kissing, dancing, and feeding Andy. The trainer was personable and funny. We had such a fun time that we'll definitely pay the extra money to swim with the dolphins next time.

The island is beautiful with gorgeous sandy white beaches. Lots of water toys, games like ping pong, and hammocks for relaxing. Plenty of lounge chairs on the beach. Didn't partake in the bar, but the lunch was tasty and filling.

The worst part of was the return trip only because we were having so much fun we weren't ready to leave.

“Tourist trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We chose this tour because I was looking forward to a little beach relaxation time after the hustle and bustle of being on a cruise ship. The boat ride to the island was very scenic and enjoyable.

The island was a tourist mess! If you can imaging what was once a beautiful cove covered and cluttered with blow up water slides (only available for an extra fee of course!) a blaring loud speaker with frequent announcements you have a pretty good picture of what goes on at the Blue Lagoon Island. Not sure of the definition of 'private' because the island was full of people from 5, count them 5 cruise ships.

The tour is very expensive for what you get and I do not recommend this tour.

We had lunch on the island and it was okay. The only water available was expensive bottled. Bathrooms were in okay condition.

“A Great Time with the Dolphins of Blue Lagoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is one of the "bucket list" items that our recent Carribbean cruise helped us acccomplished. We booked this excursion through the cruise line as our time in Nassua was very short and we did not want to risk missing our ship. The overall experience was truly great and absolutely a once in a lifetime opporunity to swim with dolphins. The staff at Blue Lagoon Dolphin Encounters clearly enjoy what they are doing and after a brief educational talk about dolphins and the ocean's environment, it was time to head to our dolphin encounter. Getting in the water means reallygetting up close and personal--we were part of a small group of ten visitors and the dolphins seemed ready to show off. The "foot push" is the highlight--being propelled across the lagoon for about 30 yards is breathtaking. If there is any down side to this adventure--it is the nearly 45 minute (one way) ferry ride out to Blue Lagoon. Between the wait on the dock next to our ship and the round trip on the ferry, we used up nearly 2 1/2 hours of our in-port time. And, Blue Lagoon has a lot to offer that we did not get to experience. So, was it worth it--YES. Just be prepared to use up about 2 1/2 hours of shore excursion time if you visit Blue Lagoon.

“Fun Day in Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

While on a cruise aboard the Carnival Dream we took a shore excursion at Blue Lagoon Island and did the dolphin encounter. While we had made 2 previous stops in Nassau on past cruises and were not overly excited about returning we were very pleasantly surprised by this excursion. The beautiful white sands of the private beach the knowledgable dolphin training staff and the large number of dolphins, sea lions, and the cove where they feed the local fish population makes this well worth returning to a port that we would have otherwise been more than happy to pass on.
