As one of Nassau’s most famous and popular sites, Blue Lagoon Island has been repeatedly voted as the number one Bahamian natural attractions and family activity. This incredible island has been virtually untouched for centuries, and is often referred to as the “real Bahamas”. The natural vegetation gives this private island the illusion that it has stayed intact from human civilization. After Dolphin Encounters opened in 1993, it started a marine mammal educational program. That same year it underwent a costly extension to the grounds to ensure their dolphins and sea lions had the best living conditions possible.
Visitors can interact with these dolphins and sea lions by participating in the different programs that allow families to get up close and personal with the animals. These programs were designed with the visitors in mind and created to make sure they are educational, safe, and entertaining. The dolphins love to show off their latest moves, and love being social with new people. The sea lions have been described as the “dogs of the sea”, and when you see them in action, it’s easy to understand why. The Dolphin Encounter Experience have set the bar to the highest level as far as animal treatment, and have been recognized internationally for their efforts concerning raising awareness for animal welfare.
