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.

Weather wasn't good, so the excursion experience wasn't that great. Overall, our dolphin experience and pictures weren't that great given the conditions. Would definitely do/go again for a better experience in better weather

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.

Reviewer: Amanda R Robinson
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.
