This shore excursion was the highlight of a cruise we took this past month. We signed up for this excursion so my husband could enjoy the experience since he does not swim. Most of these encounters are "Swimming" with the Sea Lions or dolphins; this...More

This is truly a geat adventure. You will never have such a great opportunity to get up close and personal with dolphins. The staff were extremely knowledgeable. You always felt safe and secure. It was so much fun and very educational.

My only complaint was not taking the land taxi to Paradise Island from the cruise ship. We were the last ones to get on the ferry to Blue Lagoon Island. After that, it was a great adventure. The sea lions are a blast, even though...More

Although your interaction with the sea lions was brief, the photo op with them was fabulous, and the resulting pictures are truly priceless. In addition, this is a clean and well run attraction staffed by a helpful and cheerful staff. The boat ride to get...More

In full disclosure, this was scheduled through one of the cruise ships; however, I don't think the cruise ship had anything to do with the actual experience. We did enjoy meeting the sea lions but basically it was a hug, a kiss, and we got...More

A group of three of us decided that it was as high time that we learned about sea lions. What fun! Not only did we learn what types of fish are their favorites (herring, smelts, and capelins) but we also got to pet one, feed...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I'd like to book the Sea Lion Encounter directly through Blue Lagoon (the excursion offered by the cruise line is already booked up) My question is, will they pick me up right at the cruise port? And if I reserve a 1:30 encounter, can go early to use the beach and watch the dolphins? Will I get back to my ship in time for a 6 pm departure? I've never booked an excursion outside the cruise line and am nervous about timing.

Hi there can I ask which charter you did for the snorkelling? We are from Toronto are as well. We leave Friday for Atlantis. Any other 'must see or must do' things you'd recommend? Thanks Catherine

I am wondering how long this excursion takes. The 10:30 if booked for the day I want but the 1:30 is free. My cruise gets in at 10 and leaves at 6, will that give us enough time if we book the 1:30?
