Access to dolphins, waterpark, beach, lunch and more at Blue Lagoon.
Access to dolphins, waterpark, beach, lunch and more at Blue Lagoon. One of our favorite excursions we have taken anywhere. A nice boat ride there and a beautiful beach area with so much to do! The dolphins are incredible!

fanastic how well the dolphins are trained. A little lame with the snorkeling inside the lagoon (not much sea life) but still, som small fish were there. The lagoon itself was not interesting but the Dolphins alone was worth it!

This was the best. excursion. ever!!! We had such an amazing time. People were friendly, they made sure we had a great time, and the experience of swimming with the dolphins was priceless. We are a family of four, with two adults and two kids. Pro tip: There is a long line to get to the excursion from the ship. Get in line early so you can get an earlier time with the dolphins. We were afraid we might be rained out, but we were able to do the experience in the nick of time. Avoid that and get an earlier time! Then you can enjoy the beach in a more leisurely fashion. The boat ride from the port to the island is about 45 minutes, but it is a pleasant ride because they point out interesting landmarks along the way (houses of famous people, Gilligan's Island) and then play island music. We spent the first part of our day on the beach (bring your own snacks and drinks - it can get pricey if you don't!), and it was so cool. The water was clear and blue and beautiful, and we saw some little stingrays and some beautiful fish while relaxing. The water is not deep, but it's deep enough to enjoy some water sports or floating on an inner tube. There are plenty of beach chairs, but if you want one in the shade, you'll have to pay for it. After enjoying our time at the beach, we went to swim with the dolphins. We got to swim with Bella and Treasure, and they were so amazing. We danced with them, we fed them, we hugged them, we kissed them, and we got a foot push by them. Wow! They were so entertaining, and there were plenty of photo ops. We were not permitted to take pictures (and couldn't have anyway, since we were all in the water), but the photographers did an excellent job of capturing the moments. You will pay for those moments if you want your own copies. There is a gift shop where you can look at the pictures and purchase them immediately after the experience, or you can avoid the lines and go online the next day to order them. Pro tip: Take a picture of your armband, because it has your reservation number on it, and it makes it easier to look up your experience online later. The boat ride back to the port was exciting, because it started to storm right after we left the island. I was so impressed by the captain of the boat and the crew, because it could not have been an easy ride back for them, but they never lost their composure, and never once did I feel like we were not safe. All in all, this was a fabulous experience, and we would highly recommend it to anyone! Read Less
