Swim with the Dolphins
and Dolphin Encounter

"Swim with the Dolphins"
— Blue Lagoon Island
Swimming with the Dolphins was the highlight of our last trip to the Bahamas. If it's on your Bucket List... and If you have the chance to experience a "Dolphin Encounter" — anywhere in the world — don't pass it up. It's well worth it and the memories will last you a lifetime.



Visitors at Blue Lagoon's Dolphin Sanctuary can choose from one of two exciting interactive programs:

1. Swim with the Dolphins
The 30-minute "swim" includes touching, kissing, hugging, and dancing with the bottlenose dolphins. Highlights include the Human Hurdle (dolphin jumps over you), and the exhilarating Foot Push (dolphins propel you through the water...photo below)— what a rush!

Note: Ladies, we suggest that you wear a "one-piece" bathing suit...or be prepared to hang on tight to your bikini bottoms — Alana speaks from experience!

2. Close Encounter
Interact with the dolphins from a waist deep platform. Enjoy playing, kissing, hugging and dancing with the dolphins.



Observe & Take Photos
If you'd rather observe and not interact with the dolphins, you can watch from the platform above and take photos and videos.

Dolphin Tour Hours
The tour is approximately 3 hours including the boat ride from Paradise Island Ferry terminal.

Tour Size
"Swim" — Maximum 10 people
"Encounter" — Maximum 30 people

Group Orientation
Following a short orientation, groups are fitted with life jackets before getting into the water to interact with the dolphins

What To Bring
Bring a towel, sunscreen and a change of clothes. Lockers and showers are available. We recommend that you do not wear your sunglasses if you are participating in the "swim."

Don't forget your underwater "splash-proof" cameras if you want to take up-close and personal photos of the dolphins.

Team-Building
Dolphin Swim

Plan a fun Team-Building event or treat your Top Performers to a Swim with the Dolphins.

Photos, Videos & Gift Store
Purchase professional personalized photographs and a videotape of your dolphin experience at the end of your tour. Buy t-shirts, jewelry and other dolphin memorabilia at the island's gift store.
Dolphin-related Gifts

Advanced Reservations
Be sure to make your dolphin reservations at least 3-6 months in advance — spaces are limited and sell out quickly, especially during major holidays and peak season. It's also one of the more popular excursions with cruise ship passengers (ships are docked at Nassau).

Boat to Blue Lagoon Island
Boats depart from Paradise Island Ferry Terminal to Blue Lagoon Island at 8:30am, 10:30am, 1:30pm and 3:30pm. It is recommended that you arrive 30 minutes before your boat departure time and check in at the ticket booth.

Travel Tip
When planning your trip, look for flights and cruises that go to Nassau. Several cruise ships offer day trips to Blue Lagoon Island.

Sea Lion Encounters
Sea Lion Encounters
During your visit to Dolphin Encounters, be sure to visit the new Sea Lion Habitat. Six California Sea Lions (five females and one male) joined the marine mammal family at Dolphin Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island after surviving Hurricane Katrina and the destruction of their former home in Mississippi.
