Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with an Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin? The Dolphin Encounter at Blue Lagoon Island in the Bahamas can provide you with an amazing experience with these intelligent sea mammals. For just $115 per person, Dolphin Encounters at the Blue Lagoon Island will transport you on a catamaran to our private facility where you interact with these amazing creatures.
Your adventure begins with a short, informative session where you learn about dolphin behaviors and facts about their habitat. This interactive orientation will also touch on the history of dolphins, how we train these amazing animals, and how the general public can contribute to ocean conservation.
Once your orientation is complete, you will proceed with your group to the Dolphin Encounter platform. This is the area where you will meet the dolphins. You'll stand waist deep in water along with a dolphin trainer who will provide additional education about the dolphins you'll meet and aid you in hands-on contact as you receive dolphin kisses, hugs and even get opportunities to dance and rub down these wonderful creatures. While you're spending time with the dolphins, our staff will capture your encounter via photography and video so that you can have a wonderful souvenir of your encounter.
Dolphin Encounter adventures are available at 8:30 a.m, 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m and 3:30 p.m. each day of the week. Each excursion takes three to three-and-a-half hours, with approximately 30 minutes devoted to your orientation and hands-on experience.
Children ages three and under are free with a paid adult. Youths ages four to 12 must pay the full price and be accompanied by an adult who enters the water. Cameras, including those in cell phones or other electronic devices, are not allowed.
We will gladly help guests with manual wheelchairs gain access to the water with our waterproof chair. Please note that motorized wheelchairs and those that do not collapse are not allowed on our boats.
Our excursions even run when it's raining, so come prepared. No refunds are issued for cancellations less than 24 hours in advance.
