While visiting the Bahamas, do not miss your chance to have the ultimate dolphin swim experience. In our Blue Lagoon swim with the Dolphins package, you and your family will be able to interact with the beautiful Bahamas dolphins in the best way possible. Here, you will not only be able to touch and play with these majestic creatures, but you will also be able to swim through the waters with them. Hold on to their fins or have them carry you on their bottle nose. The excitement you will experience in with our Bahamas dolphin swim tours is unparalleled.
The dolphin sanctuary on Blue Lagoon Island takes up a full three acres. Its features include the habitats for the pod of Bahamas dolphins, the areas for education and training, a kitchen, a lab for photo and video equipment, restrooms with changing facilities, and a gift shop. Your dolphin swim tour will begin with an education presentation where you will learn all about the dolphins, including information about their biological makeup, environment, and behavior. You will also learn the secrets of training these intelligent creatures.
Soon after the dolphin presentation, you will be out in the water with them, putting the training techniques you learned into action. You will spin around with the dolphins, hug them, pet them, and even swim alongside them. You will be amazed at how gentle, friendly, and intelligent these Bahamas dolphins are! We have been running our Dolphin swim tours since 1989, enthralling visitors every single day of the year. This is the highest level of interaction with dolphins you will receive. A full half hour of full engagement with the dolphins, employing the techniques used by the dolphin trainer to interact, play, and swim with these beautiful sea mammals.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Blue Lagoon Swim with the Dolphins is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
