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.

Lockers will be provided during your interaction. Please note cameras and cellphones are NOT permitted during the animal interaction portion of the tour. This tour can accommodate wheelchairs.

I went with my kids ages 7, 9 and 10 and they were blown away! They loved being so close to the dolphin. We got to pet him multiple times. He did tricks for us and gave kisses! Tour was well organized with transportation to and from the island. The beach area was really nice as well. Highly recommend this excursion!

This excursion was for my grandaughter. She loved every minute of it. Not alot to do on the Island and the food prices are crazy expensive. On the menu they have cheeseburger & fries; hot dog & fries. After you order they tell you that they don't have fries but you can take a bag of potato chips. Burger & fries (bag of chips) was $20.99 US and they don't lower the price for the substitution. The hot dog & fries (bag if chips) was $16.99 US. All in all we enjoyed the Dolphins - the sun was shining - my grandaughter loved it.

This was well worth the cost considering it was half of what the cruise ship was charging. The grandchildren got a lot of information about dolphins and played with one up close. I highly recommend to anyone who wishes to learn about dolphins and has children or grandkids. Also the staff on the island were very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing time.
