What sets us apart

Beautiful Scenic Boat Ride

We know that not all of our guests are big boaters and a few may worry about the size of the vessels or the length of the trip. Relax! Our catamarans are large, double-decker vessels that can each carry well over 100 passengers. Each boat has a captain and two mates, is equipped with life vests and is fully licensed and inspected. The ride is approximately 20-minutes and you never lose sight of land or venture far out to sea. Sit back, relax and enjoy as we cruise through Nassau's harbour, past Paradise Island and over to Blue Lagoon Island. The boat ride is very picturesque and worth the trip!

Dolphin Encounters FAQs - Programs

What's the difference between the "Dolphin Encounter" and "Dolphin Swim" programs?
In the "Swim," you are completely immersed in water with life jackets (for easier interactions with the dolphins), while in the "Encounter" you interact with dolphins from a special waist-deep platform. The "Dolphin Swim" has additional behaviors and more interaction time than the "Encounter".

Will there be other people in our program?
The maximum allowed in each "Dolphin Swim" and "Sea Lion Encounter" is ten persons and the maximum for the "Dolphin Encounter" is 30 persons although only ten people at a time are in the water interacting with the dolphins.

How deep is the water in the "Dolphin Swim" program? Do you provide wet suits and life vests when it is cold?
The water is 10-25 feet deep in the "Dolphin Swim" program. Wet suits (short type) are available at no cost, while life vests are mandatory in the swim program which help participants interact more freely with the dolphins by eliminating the need to tread water.

Can paid participants bring friends or relatives to watch their dolphin programs?
Anybody can observe our programs by paying the $30 observer fee, which includes round-trip boat transportation to and from Blue Lagoon Island.

Do you accept physically challenged or handicapped persons in your programs?
Absolutely. Dolphin Encounters caters to the physically challenged. When making a reservation, it is important to let our representative know the details of your disability. After our representative speaks with management, a decision will be made as to how to proceed. The dolphins are trained to interact with each person regardless of his or her size, shape, gender, or abilities.
