Atlantis Dolphin Cay Deep Water Swim with Aquaventure & Lunch
Take a unique, underwater adventure with an Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin on this Nassau excursion. Swim alongside this playful animal with a mask and snorkel, then feel the rush of our 'foot push' as a dolphin propels you across the water. You'll even get the chance to feed, hug, kiss, and dance with your new friend.
This unforgettable interaction begins with an orientation before you play with the dolphins and learn about these fun creatures. Then you will enjoy our signature 'foot push', where you're propelled across the lagoon by a dolphin for a rush unlike anything you have ever experienced. Each tour is limited to six people, so you can expect some quality time with a bottlenose dolphin. Please note that children aged 6-9 must wear a life jacket for this portion of the tour.
Either before or after your fun with the dolphins, enjoy the day at Atlantis as you will have full access to Aquaventure. Experience over 20 million gallons of water, thrilling high-speed water slides like the Mayan Temple and the 7-story Power Tower, a mile long river ride with rolling rapids, a spectacular kids water-play fort, 20 swimming areas, refreshing pools, white sandy beaches and at your leisure take a self-guided tour of "The Dig" and the aquariums. Lunch is included from 6 different choices while you are at Atlantis with this excursion. You will receive your lunch voucher upon check-in and you can choose to eat at Riverbend, Sharkbites Express, Pisces, Breakwater Grill, Dive In or Cave Grill.

Our overall opinion of Atlantis is that it is over priced, but the Dolphin Swim was a great experience that the entire family enjoyed from the 9 yo to the 53 yo! Our favorite part of Atlantis was just swimming and snorkeling in the beach area, but our teenage kids did like all of the water rides there. It was a fun day overall at Atlantis.

Friendly staff, and more time with the dolphins than other tours.
