What You Can Expect

Blue Lagoon Sea Lion Encounter from Nassau

Blue Lagoon Island Sea Lion Encounter from Nassau

Make your way to the ferry terminal at Paradise Island, which you can reach from Nassau by a foot (on a steep hike over a bridge), by taxi or by ferry from Woodes Rogers Wharf in downtown Nassau. Once you arrive at the terminal, board a boat for a brief ride to Blue Lagoon Island. Take in sweeping views of the harbor and ritzy waterfront homes along the way.

Once you arrive at Blue Lagoon Island, begin your sea lion program! A resident trainer will give you an introduction about sea lion behavior, training techniques, and how to interact with these playful creatures.

You will stand on waist-high platforms that are submerged in the water and get up close with the sea lions! Depending on conditions, anywhere between one to three sea lions will be present for your encounter.

The sea lions will show off some of their tricks and approach you to play – give them hugs and kisses as they leap into your arms and tap or shake their flippers for a high-five or a flipper-shake. Listen to their recognizable “bark” as they respond to their names.

Your new marine friends will blow you kisses goodbye as you leave the lagoon. There will be professional photos and video available for purchase to remember your experience.

Spend the rest of your time on the island enjoying its pristine beaches and amenities like hammocks, changing rooms and a game area before you catch the ferry back to Paradise Island Terminal.

We had the best time! The sea lion encounter was amazing. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. We went snorkeling and saw some really pretty fish. The lagoon was relaxing and refreshing! Great experience for our honeymoon!

The Sea Lions were adorable and the trainer was great. The ferry was 30 minutes late which cut into our time. After the sea lions, there was not much else to do. Staff with the exception of the trainer was not friendly or helpful.
