Träne, Lashannon was truly outstanding. She gave us confidence and made us feel good about our experience e hugged kissed, dance with and were pushed across the lagoon by two delightful,dolphins. We fed them also! It is a pricey outing to be sure, but we thought it was well worth it.

I asked my mom what she wanted for her 70th birthday. She said to swim with dolphins in the Bahamas. Her wish was granted. The blue lagoon island dolphin tour is amazing! The beaches are beautiful. They had the dolphins sing her happy birthday. Everyone was so warm, welcoming, helpful and informative. You made this truly her best birthday ever.... More

I not only was able to swim but dance with them! :) I believe the people here, when they say these dolphins are treated well, but a piece of me felt badly... More

My and wife experienced the Royal Dolphin Swim. It is pricey, but if you can afford it, it is highly recommended. The Royal Dolphin Swim was $50 more per person compared to the next level down. We saw the next level down and the additional $100 for us was well worth it. With the Royal Dolphin Swim, you get two... More

We did the dolphin swim at Dolphin Encounters and it literally was everything we hoped for and more! My husband had said it was a bucket list item for him to swim with the dolphins, and man, did these guys deliver. The trainers were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be around. The dolphins were happy and curious and seemed... More

Wayyyy too expensive for what you get! The people were harsh and not as inviting as usual. We won't be going back on this particular excursion!

My boyfriend and I had a great time at dolphin encounters! All the staff was very friendly and helpful. Swimming with the dolphins will be one of our favorite memories together. Would recommend this excursion to anyone visiting Nassau.

I had the time of my life here - I got to swim (on a boogie board while being pushed by a dolphin), kiss, hug, dance, touch and learn about dolphins! I would do this over and over! I highly recommend. They video and photograph your interaction - lots of packages to choose from. Gift shop and place to eat... More
