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.

This was a beautiful island where the kids got to play in a safe beach area while we waited to swim with the dolphins. I had done a previous dolphin encounter in Jamaica at Dolphin Cove and this was hands down better. Our trainer let us interact with the dolphin anytime he was near, didn't stop the kids from touching and answered all their questions. We had a solid 30 minutes with our dolphin and even got to feed him and pet his tongue and teeth. We got this when it was on sale, so this is also a fraction of the price that you'll pay on the cruise line. We had a 5 year old and 8 year old participate with us and it was great!

We had a group of 7 and they made sure we were together. The children loved the dolphin including the adults! We even got some beach time and relaxed a bit. Photos were not too bad $117 for a group of 7 is a good deal to me. The walk to senior frogs was a little crazy but we found it easily by asking around and had plenty of time. The boat didn't leave until 30 mins after the time that they tell you. We went the first week of October and it was nice.

I have had previous dolphin encounters with my kids. This is one of the best ones, place was nice and the encounter was very close and spent more time with the dolphins. We even got to touch the dolphins teeth and take pictures with them. Of course you have to pay almost $200 to get the pictures on a USB stick. I liked it better when we got pictures.

My husband and I enjoyed the dolphin encounter. Getting up close and personal with the dolphin is something we will never forget. The trainer was very knowledgeable and friendly. Just be aware when you meet the person getting you on the boat by Senor frogs, the person didn’t really stand out or look for people. We had to find her. It takes place at Sandals private island and the beach there is beautiful!
