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. Afterward, 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 design your adventure! Additional non-motorized water activities including snorkel gear, kayaks, and paddleboards 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, fresh sandwiches, salads, wraps, and the only Starbucks on a private island!

Restrooms are located around the island as well as freshwater 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.

Dolphin Encounter
April 02, 2020
I must say this was totally worth it. My husband and I had an awesome trainer with Dixon our Dolphin. The group was not large and we spent a great amount of time. Interaction was over the top. Definitely do this again. The photos you could purchase of your encounter was a dolphin shaped thumb drive a bit pricey but totally worth it. The Island was beautiful and very expensive to eat there. A burger was $22. 2 bottles of water and 2 personal size bags of chips was $16. They were not very friendly when paying with a CC, they would keep asking if you had cash.

This excursion was well organized and professionally conducted. There was very little wait time and the dolphin trainer was not only knowledgeable but made sure everyone got sufficient time with the dolphin.

The attendant that was supposed to meet us was an hour late the phone numbers listed we not good numbers, the finally showed up and the excursion was amazing very organized informative and such memories. I do recommend the excursion but they need to address the attendant picking you up on time and update their contact information.

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!

Dolphin Encounter
March 12, 2020
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.
