One of The Bahamas’ foremost tourist attractions, Dolphin Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island, has recently extended their Bahamas vacation excursion offerings and world-class service for visitors to experience the best of Bahamian beaches and hospitality with Beach Day packages. Renowned for its extraordinary beauty, Blue Lagoon Island is a private tropical paradise that offers guests the opportunity to relax in tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of Nassau.
The new ‘Blue Lagoon Beach Day’ adventure is a one day Bahamas excursion vacation experience that begins with a scenic 20-minute cruise on a double-decker ferry through Nassau’s historic harbour, passing some of the most luxurious homes in the Bahamas over to this spectacular private island. Surrounded by turquoise waters on all sides and covered with thousands of native coconut trees, lush landscaping and a natural lagoon, Blue Lagoon Island is an extraordinary private island that offers guests a glimpse of an untouched paradise. In the seclusion of the calm lagoon, guests can lay back and soak up the sun in a comfortable beach lounge chair, swim in the crystal clear water, explore by kayak or water bike, or just relax in a large double hammock under the shade of swaying palms.
Included in the ‘Blue Lagoon Beach Day’ Bahamas excursion vacation packages is a delicious lunch with the option of a 8 oz. Angus beef hamburger or cheese burger, all-white meat chicken burger, quarter pound all-beef hot dog or veggie burger with chips, fresh fruit, and a refreshing fruit punch in a relaxed and scenic island atmosphere; games of all varieties including volleyball, basketball, and hopscotch, unlimited use of big boss noodles, inner tubes, and unsinkable float mats along with access to the extraordinary all-natural marine mammal habitat at Dolphin Encounters to observe friendly dolphins and sea lions.
The ‘Blue Lagoon Beach Day’ Bahamas excursion vacation packages include the choice to shop for their favorite souvenirs at the lagoon gift shop and enjoy the sounds of local music. Blue Lagoon Island beach also features the Lagoon Beach Bar serving a variety of tropical beverages, soft drinks, Bahamian and imported beers, frozen daiquiris, and other specialty drinks. Guests can also rent snorkel gear for a snorkeling adventure in the lagoon; ride around in the island’s clear bottom kayaks, super-sized aqua bikes or paddle boats. Children also have access to buckets and shovels for play in the beach sand.
Exploring the spectacular natural setting is also encouraged and guests are invited to take advantage of the numerous fun-filled eco-activities offered on Blue Lagoon Island.
