We had a great time at the Blue Lagoon Island Beach Day, I would recommend it to families with children. Food was awesome. Employees there were very nice. I am looking forward to going again to this Island. It was very relaxing. The water was beautiful.
We really enjoyed the Blue Lagoon Island Beach Day. Beautiful blue water, clean restrooms, ample and tasty lunch buffet, free water toys. Overall, a relaxing day at a beautiful beach. The water on the other side of the island was a bit rough and made for challenging snorkeling, with not many fish to see.
Fun day! Travel from Dallas to Nassau. Ran into cousin and family there. We were laughing that we gave to travel across the world to see each other!

I go here with my grandkids every cruise . This will be our 4th or fifth time here . we love it You relax either in the water or on the beach, or on shore in a shady hammock. It is a very pretty place and the kids love to watch the dolphins entertain. If you have kids with you this is the place to go , while at Nassau!
HELPFUL COURTEOUS STAFF AND A.MUCH.IMPROVED BUFFET.8

At the braiding center we were a little concerned because we didn't see anyone with a sign. When Mr. Johnson arrived, one of the braiders pointed him out. The bus ride was fine; we were the only ones on it. Driver was kind & thorough with his instructions for us. The ferry ride was nice. The beach was lovely. Several areas of chairs (the ones that offered some shade under trees) were marked with "reserved" signs. We sat in a couple of those anyway, as there were no other empty seats with shade. An hour before our time was up, we had to leave those seats because the group that had the reservation arrived. We didn't mind moving, but it would have been nice to have "reserved" listed with a time, so that we would have felt like we could have sat in any of the reserved sections we wanted. Lunch was OK. The servers were kind & it was nice to have a shady place to eat. Ferry back was on time, so no worries about making it back to the ship. Overall it was enjoyable.

It was great to get away from all the tourist commotion at this island. My family and I spent a great day at a beach that wasn't at all crowded and a nice lunch was provided. We just wanted to spend a nice day at the beach and that is what we got. We loved it!
Everyone was very helpful along the way. Great food, great service, smiles all around!
Reviewer: Steve Wallace
This was an outstanding excursion, in fact we are planning on doing it again in July with our kids and grandkids. The hammocks and picnic areas were restful, the beach was ok, and the dolphins were very entertaining. I would have given this 5 stars except the beach area in the water had a lot of rocks.
Reviewer: Maribel Martinez-Sagastume
Loved the island getaway and everything they had, from water noodles to hammocks with lunch!!! Tried the water obstacle course with my son, I'm 43 and workout 3-4 times a week and it was still difficult, I do not recommend this for anyone unless you can pick your own body weight out of the water. The small boat there and back was fun, the sights great! However, you have times to leave based on your cruise line departure which out us 2 1/2 hrs early at the port. I did not like that. Overall it was a good stop.
Reviewer: Steve Wallace
Everything about this excursion was great. The boat ride, watching the dolphins, relaxing in a hammock, and the lunch were all perfect. The only negative was that in February, the water was still chilly.
If your just looking for great sand, gorgeous sea, privacy, and great food, this is your place! Loved it
Reviewer: Steven Kessler
Excellent excursion! Great boat ride and beautiful lagoon for swimming. Very quiet and relaxing - included lunch was very good. Recommended.
Reviewer: Craig and Glo
Ship's Guest Services and Shore Excursions were terrible at helping us, causing us to nearly miss our bus. We were literally running through the crowd, following obscure directions, when our bus driver found us, showed me my name on his paper, and ""rescued us"". He was absolutely SUPERB!!! He deserves a pay raise!!! Our pickup point was Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville - I thought that was a myth; it's actually a real place :) Once on Blue Lagoon Island, we enjoyed it, but wish we could have spent more time. We weren't charged the $10/day fee to use the floating mats. We enjoyed a little sun bathing, warm aqua blue shallow water, lunch and topped it up with watching dolphins as we boarded the water taxi to come back.
Beautiful island. Not too beautiful prices and food
We had a most wonderful time Everyone was so friendly. Great lunch and beautiful property and beach The dolphins and sea lions are amazing. Can't wait to return with our Grand Boys ❤️

My family loved the beach we bought snorkels and went thru the lagoon looking at the fish.
Love the lagoon a very peaceful place. Food was great and music too.

PERFECT... EVERYTHING WENT VERY SMOOTHLY FROM THE BUS RIDE TO THE FERRY AND BACK. THE PERFECT DAY!
Reviewer: Bob M
Great time swimming with Dolphins
it was cold and rainy the day we were there. It would have been ideal for our family, especially with small children. the water was clear and calm. We did play in the sand and explore the island. Would have been ideal if the weather was nicer.
We had a great relaxing day at a well designed day resort. This combined with boat ride made for a most enjoyable day. Much better than a day at Atlantis.
It was good. The way it was worded seemed like you could play with water toys and they were included
We had a wonderful time. There were no negatives.
We took our 15month and 3 year old in July and had a BLAST. The 30 min boat ride was great for sightseeing, the food was good, and the island was beautiful. The inflatables in the water were a ton of fun and the employees were all very friendly. It was just a long enough excursion that we got back to the cruise ship and had time to rest and relax before dinner. My husband and I are going back to Nassau next month and doing this excursion again by ourselves! Can't wait to actually sit on the beach this time :) This was an excellent alternative to Nassau, which is my least favorite island. Only thing I wasn't a fan of, is after the short shuttle ride to get on the ferry, we stood in line for 20 minutes to get our ""tickets"" to get on the ferry, although everything was purchased in advance. THey were building a new area for this so maybe it'll be faster once we get back.
We did just the beach part of this excursion and it was wonderful. We arrived at 9, as the rest of the group went off to interact with the animals we had two beaches all to ourselves. The next boat arrived at 11 and it started getting busy. We did get to see the animals which was an added bonus. The beach was clean, the staff was friendly and lunch was good. The boat back took us right to the cruise port which was very helpful.
We were met at our designated spot by our driver and he informed us of the pick up times to come back and even had us repeat it back to him, but he gave us the wrong times, he said 2:30, 3:30 pick up times but it is actually 2:00, 3:00. We had to rush and gather up all of our stuff and basically run back to the ferry boat. Scary when you think you might get left. We were given our drink and lunch vouchers, one free soda and lunch, but when you go to redeem them, soda isn't actually soda , it is lemonade and fruit punch and we would have had to pay for actual soda. Maybe clearer information would be good. The beach itself is beautiful and very relaxing. Lots of chairs and shade also if you need it.
The ferry over to the Blue Lagoon was a lot of fun! It was so exciting to see the crystal clear water of the lagoon and to swim with the tropical fish. There were even hammocks under the palm trees to relax in--absolutely amazing! It was truly the experience of a lifetime!! The extras that went along with the lagoon, such as the Fun Park and snorkeling were quite pricey, but still a lot of fun! Our only big issue was that the time of the ferry back to our ship had changed and we were not informed. Unfortunately, we were swimming in the lagoon at the time an announcement was made about the ferry, but we could not hear the announcement. Luckily, the members of the ferry were very accommodating and waited for our party to run to the ferry. So, all in all, it was awesome! We highly recommend it!

Beautiful beach, good food,plentiful lounge chairs and water toys
The area was nice and clean. The beach was not too crowded. It was breezy and cool the day I was there, so there was some strong current to fight in the water, and the water temp was between 78-80 degrees (a little cool for my tastes, but OK). The food selection was limited in variety, but also OK. I could have done without the sometimes off-key singer. The water transportation to and from the site was good.

Great trip, beautiful island/workers. Great food and drinks. I recommend this excursion.
Reviewer: Marry the cruiser
The excursion was easy to meet our guide, just outside the Festival Building. The trip was fast to the pick up for the ferry. All the vehicles were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The beach was great and lunch was good. The only suggestion I have is to spell it out that the inflatable park is extra. I had read it might be so I was prepared, but the listing makes it sound like it is included.
Third time on this excursion and I love it every time. Private Island feel.
Blue Lagoon was vey relaxing. We enjoyed the ferry ride out to the island. The lunch was outstanding, more than we expected. I thought charging for all the inter tubes and play area was a bit much though considering we already paid to be there in the first place. We enjoyed the swimming and floating anyway. Great way to start our vacation!
Reviewer: La Brujita
Outstanding tour! Beautiful beach plenty of peace. I am very greatful to Shore Excursion! I hope see you son guys!
If you want an unforgettable experience, then Blue Lagoon is a must see in Nassau. Would go here time and time again.
Reviewer: Granny of the year
This was our second time going to the Blue Lagoon with our two grandchildren. There was something for everyone. Plenty of beach chairs in the sun or shade. Gorgeous blue water with lots of activities for the children. The children even bowled with coconuts--where else could they do that!!! Lunch was also quite good. This was a wonderful excursion and we hope to go there again.
we have so much fun when we got on the island...
Great family beach
Reviewer: Very satisfied customer
I chose this excursion over the Carnival one for the ratings and am glad I did! The food was great, the chicken sandwich was better than I expected overall. The whole staff on this island were very friendly and our drinks were heaven, & priced as regularly as in FL. I didn't bring my kids to this excursion and regretted it. There were many things for kids, a great water area for kids right on the beach, while parents can watch their kids, but relax with the good food and drinks while soaking up the sun. It rained on our excursion but the little tents set up allowed us to enjoy our time just as fine as if the sun was out. It was a great plus seeing the dolphins & sea lions. Definitely a grand time on this excursion & glad I chose it over Carnival's.
it was overall a gd experience. Beautiful place to relax. The ferry tour guide was very informative. Food was include but was not worth it.
always book this when I go to Nassau... a great deal through this site, and a very relaxing day!
This island is great for families. The pick you up in a van a couple hundred feet from the cruise docks, and take you to where you get on the water ferry. The water ferry takes you over to the island. They have blow up bounce houses for the kids to play in, and a bunch of blow up activities to do in the water also. (Included in the price) There is a strip of beach, and the water is crystal clear. They give you a voucher to eat a picnic style lunch on the beach. I would recommend bringing a bottle of water so you have an extra drink with you. They also sell alcoholic drinks, and have a little bar on the beach.
We had a great day at Blue Lagoon Beach. Great food, variety of activities and nice, clean facilities along with friendly, helpful staff.
Only problem we had wasn't Blue Lagoon's fault...brought our snorkel gear & seas were 8' so no snorkeling was allowed on island. Went to plan B and just relaxed on the beach & used the float provided. Food was varied & quite good. Lots of fun activities for children...huge slides, etc. in the water. Enjoyed it very much.
Reviewer: ocean lover
I thought the island was great for everyone. Being able to see the dolphins train and play without paying to swim with them was a plus. My 3 year old grandson was captivated. The workers on the island were quite friendly
Reviewer: Mrs. A
We picked this excursion b/c it was one of the cheapest, it looked beautiful and the reviews were good. The reviews were pretty spot on. It was absolutely beautiful! My husband and I picked a spot with a hammock in the shade that hung over the water next to my lawn chair. All we did was relax and swim and enjoy a cocktail. It was amazing. I'm glad they included food for the price and it was pretty good / just ok. We chose the grilled chicken sandwhich and it was good. The fries were hot and I got the salad. It was more like school food than anything. It looked like bagged salad which was fine but the fruit option was whole fruit that I didn't want and I'm all about some fruit usually. There were those dark red apples and I don't like those but that's just personal preference. The most disappointing thing was the drink option. NO option for water, not even out of a pitcher. The only drink option was lemonade or raspberry tea. Both were watered down and we drank neither. Plus there were flies everywhere so we were just trying to hurry up and eat. The food in the buffet line was covered for the most part so the flies only seemed to be in the picnic area. One positive was the alchoholic drinks. Although it seemed expensive it was so loaded with alcohol it took two of us to finish it. Overall it was worth the trip for the scenery alone. The boat ride over on crystal clear water. Seeing dolphins & tropical fish swimming freely and the relaxing. One thing you NEED to do is bring a towel, sunblock, water & a snack b/c none of those are supplied. We went at the end of September if that matters to anyone. I'm 32 & we traveled alone.

Had a great time...second time doing this
Was great lots of activities to do included in the price. Beach was beautiful and relaxing. Just what I needed. The day was a little short though. Didn't have enough time for all the activities
We had a great time relaxing and snorkeling on the beach
Picked up at Ship dock by bus, but taken to ship dock by boat. Yay. Very relaxing day. Swam, snorkeled, tanned and ate - couldn't get much better
Reviewer: F&J Cruisers
Shuttle was waiting for us outside cruise port as promised. Very enjoyable day. We did not book the dolphin encounter, however we were able to walk the trails and see the dolphins and sea lions.
We had a fabulous time at the Blue Lagoon! We were there in December and there were no crowds. It was relaxing and peaceful.
Overall it was a great day of relaxing at the beach. We were lucky to be there on a day that was not crowded. The life guard was nice and so was the bar tender. The lunch was not so great. We had to wait on French fries twice before they had enough to complete our lunch baskets. Flys all around the eating and serving area. For the price we paid , I would have expected a better lunch . They should also provide water or beverages refills for lunch and through out the day! We will back but will bring some water with us
Reviewer: Time traveler
Basic beverages need to be provided at the price we paid . Lunch was just ok. One 10 oz beverage is not enough for day! Beach was great, lots of tiny shells to find. Plenty of chairs and floats. Very relaxing !
Great place whether you're looking to relax or be active. Loved the fresh coconut stand.
Reviewer: Pykor Family
this is my second time at blue lagoon we love it here something for everyone it can be the most relaxing time or the most exciting time whatever your looking for its here best beach, snorkeling in lagoon was good lots of fish swimming about and being able to get on the ocean side was very exciting loved every minute family of four from 10 years old to 21 to 45 to 54 we all had the best time. be back soon!!!
Reviewer: Mom of 3
The ocean side was the best since there were fewer people and the snorkling was great! Great hammocks to relax in and of course the water is beautiful! Things for the kids to do also (like swimming with the dolphins!).
