This wonderful tour brings you closer to an Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin than you ever dreamed possible!
A 15-minute walk from the ship brings you to the high-speed, double-decker catamaran that stands ready to transport you to world-famous Blue Lagoon Island. En route, you'll be treated to the beautiful scenery of Nassau's historic harbor.
Arriving at Blue Lagoon Island, your program begins with a fun, interactive, orientation that briefly covers the natural history of dolphins, animal training techniques, ocean conservation and Watchable Wildlife Guidelines. After being prepped for your encounter, you will proceed to the Dolphin Encounter float where you will stand on a waist-deep submerged platform and experience a heart-warming kiss, a hug, a dance and opportunities to rub down the dolphin. Your dolphin trainer will combine elements of hands-on contact, education, fun, laughter, and adventure to make this an unforgettable experience (Wet suits are available during cooler weather).
During your time at Blue Lagoon Island, you can also observe the California Sea Lions in their all-natural habitat. Many of these sea lions were rescued from Gulfport, Mississippi in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. After a visit of approximately 2-hours, you will re-board your catamaran for the transfer back to the pier in Nassau.
