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.

I purchased this excursion for my daughter for her birthday. She enjoyed the encounter with the dolphin. I purchased the island only excursion but was allowed to watch her. It looked like she was having a lot of fun. They took beautiful pictures but the lowest package was very expensive. We did not purchase a picture package but other than that it was enjoyable.

3 StarsCute experience but pricey!May 30, 2019

Reviewer: Ashley
So, you get to pet the dolphin and watch it do tricks and take pictures with it which is very lovely. The camera man took very mediocre pics (a lot of them weren’t angled straight) and to purchase pics, it’s all or nothing—they put them on a USB drive. It’s cost like $120 or something. Make sure to BRING WATER SHOES!! I read on a review to wear them before hand and it really helped. The bar drinks are super pricey and not strong—$18/drink 🙃 Lastly you can relax on the beach and go on floaties in the water which was nice :)

We had an awesome trainer and this was by far the highlight of our trip! HOWEVER, be prepared for $115+ charges for any photos!! Could not just buy 1 or 2. Had to Buy package of DIGITAL photos. C’mon!! I was in shock. Did not even have that $ on my person at this island! And would not use a CC there.
