We were picked up from the Paradise Island pier and ferried out to the Blue Lagoon Island. The trainers were incredible and the experience so memorable. Everyone knew their stuff. After the encounter was done, we spent the rest of the day on the island. The day we went it was quiet, peaceful, included an inflatable water park and provided... More

I loved every minute of it and being close and personal with the dolphins. We could only do the encounter because of my sons height and he was disappointed at first but afterwards he said that is an experience he will never forget. For the price you cant beat it! To top it off (Manny Ramirez) was there with us... More

My friend and I went on this trip and had a wonderful time!! It is fun for all ages, the staff are very nice and informative. The Dolphins are kept in a special cove, so that they are in a natural environment. I highly recommend this trip.

We just returned from Blue Lagoon and had a great time. We did the dolphin swim with Zoe, Princess, Abaco, and baby Louie. It was well worth it. The food vouchers we got supplied us with a ton of food. We found a nice shady place on the beach and just relaxed for the rest of our day.

I was on my mid semester break, marking was all done and I wanted to indulge in some R & R. What would I do without leaving home? Well I found the perfect adventure. I had received an blast promoting a resident's discount for the Dolphin Close Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island and thought…..I'd try something new. So on Friday,... More

Just came back from Bahamas, seen the dolphins. It was my first time so I didn't know what to expect . Thought it was interesting . Wish we could of spent more time in the water with the animal. But I think it's worth it. Next time I'll try actually swimming with them instead of just petting them.

My kids did this and my husband and I were observers which is a fee of $45 each (just to watch them)!!!! You have to take a 30 min ride to & from the place while in port at Nassau. The kids had so much fun. The cute dolphins were like kids themselves. I was wishing I had did the... More

My BF and I did the Dolphin Swim at Blue Lagoon and we're wowed by these beautiful creatures. I had done a similar program a few years back in Florida, but this one was in the open and on a beautiful private island. The dolphins were fun, friendly and smart. We couldn't stop smiling the whole time we were there.... More
