Dolphin Swim & Exclusive Island
Experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of swimming with dolphins! While other dolphin programs only let you pet them, this Nassau excursion lets you frolic right alongside them.
The Nassau dolphin excursion begins with a ride to a beautiful private island where you will get up close to these majestic creatures. When you first arrive at the island, the knowledgeable staff will guide you through any paperwork and provide you with the necessary equipment for this tour. You will get fins, a mask and a life jacket. For about 15 minutes, a trainer will share fun facts about dolphins, and even give you the chance to pose for a photo with one! After this brief introduction, it's time to embark on your Nassau excursion and swim with dolphins!
The next half hour is spent swimming around as dolphins go over and underneath you - seeing these beautiful, graceful creatures having fun gliding through the water around you is an experience you'll never forget! You'll even get to hear them communicate with one another.
After the dolphin swim portion of the tour, you'll have free time to explore the private island. How you spend your time on the island is up to you!
There are many activities to choose from, like kayaking, hopping around the different bars or just getting some sun (lounge chair included). Umbrellas are also available on a first come, first serve basis. Additional non-motorized water activities available for rent. Drinks and food are also available for purchase.
Restrooms are located around the island, as well as fresh water showers and foot baths. Don't worry about getting back in a hurry, the first departure from the island to downtown begins at 2:00 PM. Your tour representative on the island will schedule you accordingly to ensure you are back to your ship on time for re-boarding.
Please Note: For the welfare of the dolphins, loose items such as jewelry and cameras cannot be taken into the water during this Nassau dolphin swim excursion. Lockers will be provided during your interaction.

This was one of the most fun days we've had with our ten year old granddaughter. The experiences with the dolphins was extraordinary. We interacted with them in deep water for quite a while. My only admonition would be to say that the meeting place was quite a distance from our ship which was docked at the farthest pier. The professional pictures were very expensive ($95 for a cd), but we bought it because the experience was once in a lifetime.

The staff were friendly very clean place. The Dolphin swim was an unforgettable experience they not only danced with you but swim next to you throughout the whole time. We were in the ocean with them for about 40min I would recommend this experience to anyone who wants to get the best dolphin experience ever!!

The grand kids said it was the highlight of their cruise. The grandparents enjoyed it, too.
We were on a cruise. Much than booking via the cruise line and it was no problem to find the location and get back on the ship in time. We spend a lot of time with the dolfins and really enjoyed the experience. Photo including video USD 138.00!
What an amazing experience, so glad that we decided to do the swim instead of just the encounter. My daughter (8 yrs old) has talked about it as the “big” hi-light of our trip. It was a beautiful day, sun shining, beach clean and not over crowded. Only downfall was that the boat got there late and we had to be on the first boat back. Would have loved to enjoy the beach a little longer.
