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 tour can accommodate wheelchairs.
So much fun, Dixon our Dolphin was super sweet and cute. My only complaint is the pictures are unreasonably priced and they wont allow you to take your own.

My boyfriend and I celebrated our 1 yr anniversary with a cruise to the Bahamas and we were blessed to experience the dolphins up close and personal. Thenprice if the excursion was a steal and everything went smoothly!!!

This is a must-do.....the trainer was great and the dolphin was awesome. Once in a lifetime thing, we really enjoyed it. The only bad thing was the price of the pictures.

Absolutely a great choice for how to use our day in Nassau on our Disney Cruise . . . we had used Shore Excursions on our Panama Cruise and knew that it would be a great choice for our five grandkids, our children and us! Unbelievable in every way from the pick up system "off the boat" to the dolphin program to the trip to and from our private island! Wow! GREAT day . . . and tremendous pictures! Just ask!

Interacting with the dolphins was great. My negative comment would be that there was no warning that the ocean floor where you see the dolphins is treacherous. If you are not wearing water shoes it was very hard to get to the spot the instructor wanted you to be.
