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

The private island was fantastic. We got to hang out on the beach and there was hardly anyone else there. This is the same beach where Sandals is located. The dolphin encounter was awesome. The trainers were very professional. Water shoes are a must as the dolphin enclosure was rocky. The pictures were $117 but there are no other options. The food on the private beach is very expensive. Overall we had a great time.

Absolutely had a wonderful time. A dream come true. It’s was great to be so close and able to touch the dolphins. Definitely a must-do if you love dolphins. This excursion was everything it said it was.

The island was beautiful and the employees were friendly but the dolphin was amazing! They are so well trained, smart and talented. It was just my family and one other couple so it felt very personal and exclusive like the island! We were never rushed and welcome to ask questions which were all answered. We got to touch the dolphin multiple times and hear it's noises and learn about its body. The trainer was very kind and knowledgeable. The pictures were a great deal and plentiful. They even came on a dolphin USB. So cute! I cannot say enough good things about this excursion.
I feel like the excursion was very good for the money spent on this experience. The dolphin encounter was FUN and the beach afterward was beautiful. A similar excursion was available through the cruise but cost almost 3 times! I would have been disappointed if I had not read through other reviews before I went. I knew I would not be able to take pictures, and they would sell me their pictures at an outrageous price. Also, the food and drinks on the island are so high that we did not even feel hungry, and glad we brought our own water! And wear some water shoes as the beach where the dolphin encounter is rocky. Lastly, everyone is on island time. We waited around without any clear idea of was going on before we left. Until it was time to go, then things clicked into place. Afterward, waiting around to go back was chaotic, and they were behind schedule. We still got back to our cruise ship with plenty of time since we planned on leaving a couple hours before we were due back.

I was so happy to have booked this excursion from reading the other reviews and it was just as described. My family and I had the most awesome time with our dolphin Mickey and it was an experience we will never forget. Was the beat part of our trip!!! Loved every moment!!!!
