What You Can Expect

Private Island Dolphin Swim from Nassau

Enjoy a dolphin encounter off the coast of Nassau!

Make your own way to Prince George Wharf to meet your guide and board the ferry for the 30-minute crossing to Balmoral Island.

On arrival, enjoy a brief introduction on how to interact with the dolphins. Then, wade out into the waist-deep water to begin your select activity. See the Itinerary for the full details.

After, enjoy the rest of your time as you wish, with included access to the beach or nearby pool.

Your tour concludes with a drop-off back at the original departure point.


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.

The dolphin swim was fantastic! The guides are brilliant and clearly passionate about what they do. The animals also seem very happy too. You get to touch the dolphins, even dance with them too. After the swim there is opportunities to get a photograph with the animals. You are not allowed to take your own photographs, it has to be done by the resort. The photographs are expensive. We felt that with the price you are paying for the experience, the photographs could at least be included. It is a pricey Island, you are not allowed to bring any food or drink on it with you. The pools at the resort were not very clean, lots of things floating in the water. I would thoroughly recommend the dolphin experience and put the other parts aside as my wife and I were solely there for the dolphin swim.

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.
