My and wife experienced the Royal Dolphin Swim. It is pricey, but if you can afford it, it is highly recommended. The Royal Dolphin Swim was $50 more per person compared to the next level down. We saw the next level down and the additional $100 for us was well worth it. With the Royal Dolphin Swim, you get two... More

We did the dolphin swim at Dolphin Encounters and it literally was everything we hoped for and more! My husband had said it was a bucket list item for him to swim with the dolphins, and man, did these guys deliver. The trainers were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be around. The dolphins were happy and curious and seemed... More

Wayyyy too expensive for what you get! The people were harsh and not as inviting as usual. We won't be going back on this particular excursion!

My boyfriend and I had a great time at dolphin encounters! All the staff was very friendly and helpful. Swimming with the dolphins will be one of our favorite memories together. Would recommend this excursion to anyone visiting Nassau.

I had the time of my life here - I got to swim (on a boogie board while being pushed by a dolphin), kiss, hug, dance, touch and learn about dolphins! I would do this over and over! I highly recommend. They video and photograph your interaction - lots of packages to choose from. Gift shop and place to eat... More

We went as a family of 5: 2 children ages 12 & 9 and my mother who is 69. We had a blast. RANDY was our dolphins trainer and although he is a new trainer he was amazingly kind, friendly and made it fun for everyone in our group no matter of the age. He worked with the dolphin in... More

I did this excursion thru Norwegian cruise lines and it was an enjoyable. I did the Blue Lagoon beach break, and a small lunch was included for cruisers! The water was beautiful and clean, and there were plenty of fish and water life to be seen. There were plenty of inflatable water toys available for the kids and they appeared... More

Beautiful place. So much to do but remember to bring cash and lots of it. Water color is priceless though. So blue and vibrant. We did the sea lion encounter and it was amazing. You cannot bring your own camera in but can pay for pics at end. The place is great for couple and families with little kids. Consider... More
