Nassau Blue Lagoon Dolphin Swim Excursion Reviews

Do not miss out on an exciting personal encounter with the world's smartest marine mammal—the dolphin. Grab on tight as it takes you for a swim through Nassau's turquoise waters.
We did the Animal Adventure which included time with Dolphins.
We did the Animal Adventure which included time with Dolphins. Sea Lion, and Sting rays. It was great! We had a little time left over to eat and hang out on the beach at the Island.

Once again we were given instructions to meet on the pier. NCL staff directed us to go stand by the palm tree--there were 5 palm trees in the area and we could not clarify which one. There were tons of people around us for several different tours and the Celebrity Summit and MSC Seaside were dumping off passengers as well. I heard someone say there is the boat for Blue Lagoon Dolphin Experience and a group started moving--again no clear direction--we followed and got on the boat. Others stayed behind--turns out we went early but we got good seats on the boat before it filled. It was an anxiety filled experience again and caused arguments over whether to stay or go. Once we got on the water the boat ride was narrated and was great. This was well worth the money. The island/lagoon was beautiful--loved the water and was a great place for families. The dolphin experience was also terrific. Did not want the day to end. There is a rush to get to ferries back to Nassau so make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to the ship/go shopping.

Great experience swimming with the dolphins. Pay the extra money and do the swim, not the encounter. You will not regret it. Also book ahead of time since this one sells out quickly.

The transportation was very good to the location (music on board). I was looking forward to excellent snorkeling. I'm not a pro snorkeler by an means but access to the better reef on Blue Lagoon was pretty dangerous. Once I made it past the sea urchins and slippery rocks it was amazing but not for the faint of heart. I will try Pearl Beach next time. Read Less
