What You Can Expect

Private Island Dolphin Swim from Nassau

Enjoy a dolphin encounter off the coast of Nassau!

Your dolphin adventure starts with a 30-minute ferry ride to a small, private isle less than a mile off the Nassau coast.

When you arrive, meet the friendly staff who will give you a short introduction on what to expect and how to act with the dolphins. Then wade out into the clear, waist-deep water to begin your selected activity option.

Dolphin encounter (30 minutes):
Stand in the water with a dolphin trainer, who will tell you interesting facts about these intelligent mammals and impress you with demonstrations of their behavior and actions. Hold still while a dolphin comes in for a cheeky kiss, and pose for a souvenir photo that you can purchase later, if you’re interested.

Dolphin swim (45 minutes; includes mask, fins and life jacket):
Similar to the dolphin encounter, enter the water with a trainer and learn fun facts about the dolphins. For about 15 minutes, watch demonstrations of behavior, ask any questions and pose for a souvenir photo. Then you have 30 minutes of free swimming time. Enjoy the amazing experience of floating in the water while dolphins swim around and under you. Dip your head under the surface to listen to their chatter and watch their interactions with each other.

After your encounter or swim, you’re free to enjoy the rest of your time on the private island however you wish. Perhaps rent snorkeling gear, go for a swim in the inviting aquamarine water, or just relax on the white-sand beach and either bask in the sunshine or take shelter in the shade of an umbrella.

If you’d rather avoid the sand, find respite at the beachfront pool. You can buy soda, tropical cocktails, beer, coffee or other drinks from one of the island bars, and purchase snacks or lunch from the market. Then sit down to eat on the shady patio.

In the mid-afternoon, return to Nassau on the ferry.

We were told to meet our guide at 10:00 adjacent to Senor Frog. The gentleman who was there did not identify himself and we were not sure we were even in the right place. The boat showed up after 11:00 and we left for the island. Other than that, everything was great. It was disappointing not being able to take any of our own photographs. The photograph disc was pretty expensive at 75.00. We were not really interested in all the extra photos included on the disc.

Finding the actual tour was a tad tricky. The tour guide did not hold any signs so we just asked other people around the area. The island was very clean and pretty. The water was like pool water clear. I wish that they gave us something to play with the dolphins such as seaweed or a ball but the dolphins were pretty friendly and kept swimming around us. Overall great experience. I have done the dolphin encounter at Atlantis and this was much better.
