Dolphin Encounter & Exclusive Island Shore Excursion

Play with dolphins during your own private island escape on this Nassau excursion! This is the best dolphin program you'll find around because you'll get to interact with these cool creatures right on the beach! Unlike similar excursions you may see, there's no waiting in an overcrowded pool or wasting time here on this Nassau excursion!

On this popular Nassau dolphin excursion, you'll be whisked away to a private island where you'll get to spend the day freely exploring a tropical paradise. When you first arrive, friendly staff members will provide you with a quick orientation about the dolphin encounter and help you fill out any necessary paperwork. And then the fun of your Nassau shore excursion begins! You'll wade out into the water until you're waist deep to greet your new dolphin buddy.

For approximately half an hour, the trainer will educate you on dolphin behavior and answer any of your questions. At the end of the encounter, you'll get a kiss from the dolphin and pose for a photo (available for purchase).

The rest of the day on the island can be spent however you'd like. Lay on the beach (lounge chair included!), go snorkeling in the beautiful waters or grab a refreshing drink - you can basically design your own adventure! Additional non-motorized water activities including snorkel gear, kayaks and paddle boards are available for rent.

If you're looking for some relaxing beach time, umbrellas are available on the beach on a first come basis, and there is plenty of shade on one of our patios or bars.

If it's a tropical drink you're after, there are four delightfully different bars on the island, each with its own mood. One of the most popular is the Frozen Tropical Drink bar where frozen margaritas, daiquiris and pina coladas await you.

If you're feeling hungry, the market offers something for everyone, from small snacks to complete meals of fresh sandwiches, salads, wraps; and the only Starbucks on a private island!

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 12:00 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 excursion. Lockers will be provided during your interaction. You can capture your encounter forever by purchasing a photo provided on a CD by the local representative. Please note that this is NOT included in the price of the tour.

Best part of my vacation! The encounter was awesome and informative. I thought the price for photos was over the top. I probably would have purchased them if they offered more reasonable photo package options.

The trainers for the dolphins were very nice and had us interact with the dolphin more than I have at other places. The price on the pictures was not outrageous as others have indicated.

Fun. 30 minutes boat ride to get there. The island is shared with some other vacation lines. There are toys and floats available to rent. We were unable to kayak like we wanted since the water was too rough. Dolphin experience is fun. They are strict about only purchasing their picture package.

Recommended. This was the unique birthday experience I was looking for. I was very happy with my choice. We spent about 45 minutes with the dolphin and trainer. We learned a lot about dolphins, got a kiss, and got to touch the dolphin many times, including his teeth and tongue. The water was waist deep. No swimming needed. They take pictures, which a person can buy afterwards, which I did and love.

Reviewer: Kristi Searle
Our family enjoyed a lovely day on this island! The dolphin encounter was spectacular and our time on the beach was perfect. The island is beautiful and clean with very friendly staff. While you can not take your own pictures during the dolphin encounter, there is a photographer capturing the moments. Our pictures turned out great and we thought the price ($120) for the entire CD of pictures wasn't bad. Highly recommend!
