What You Can Expect

Blue Lagoon Island Dolphin Encounter from Nassau

Dolphin kisses on Blue Lagoon Island!

Make your way to the ferry terminal on Paradise Island, accessible from Nassau by a steep walk over the bridge, by taxi or ferry. Once you meet at the terminal, catch your boat to Blue Lagoon Island! Enjoy fantastic views of Nassau Harbor and the glamorous waterfront homes that you will pass along the way.

Once you arrive on Blue Lagoon Island (also known as Salt Cay), your 30-minute program will begin with a brief introduction about the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin and ocean conservation measures.

Then it’s time to meet the dolphins! You will stand on a platform about 3 feet (1 meter) high and watch as these graceful creatures show of their tricks (including backflips!) and shower you with affection. You can play with them by giving tummy rubs and holding their fins for a dance! Your experience will be captured on photo and video, which will be available to purchase when you depart the island.

After your dolphin program, explore Blue Lagoon Island and its pristine beaches and amenities like hammocks, changing rooms, and a game area before catching the boat back to Paradise Island Ferry Terminal.

This was an awesome experience from beginning to end. Staff was friendly and helpful from the ferry ride staff to the Blue Lagoon Island staff. The Dolphin encounter was better than I expected. Our trainer, Brittney, was excellent. She was funny, personable and everyone got equal time and was unrushed. I have done a similar Dolphin encounter at Discovery Cove in Orlando and this one blew it away. Highly recommend anyone thinking about doing this excursion while in Nassau to do it!

This was an awesome experience. Worth every penny. Blue Lagoon does close early, so its best to do an encounter as early in the day as possible so that you can walk around and see the Sea Lions and other Dolphins and also take in some time at the beach. We were the last encounter of the day so felt a bit rushed after we got out of the water to get back on the ferry boat. But being in the water with the Dolphin was incredible and the trainers were great and fun.

The tour was really nice. I expected a 10-15min encounter where dolphin might show up, but this was really nice. Dance with the dolphin, feed, pat, hug the dolphin. Really worth the value.

The only flip side is we did not have time to enjoy the lagoon after the tour as we had to get back to the cruise. The last ferry to the cruise ship was too early.
