Tour Summary

During your 2.5 hour excursion, you’ll be taken by boat from Port Lucaya out to an area of beautiful coral gardens that line Grand Bahama Island where you can explore the colorful reefs that are loaded with lively tropical fish and marine life.  Angelfish, Butterfly Fish, Tang, Eagle and Manta Rays, Barracuda, Nassau Grouper, and many more species can be expected to be seen around the corals in our area at any given time.  There’s also a certified scuba dive master on board to provide any necessary instructions for snorkeling to help ensure that your snorkeling time is enjoyable and safe.  

After the snorkeling time has ended, it’s time to head back and meet your new dolphin friend!  In the dolphin experience, you’ll be introduced to the staff and one of our trained Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins.  The trainers will explain facts about the history of our facility and provide knowledge about the anatomy and behavior of these amazing mammals.  It’s then time for the real show of ability when your trainer sends the dolphin into action!  Our professional photographer will be on hand to catch the dolphin walking on water past you or posing in front of you, or maybe in mid-air as the dolphins love to flip and fly across the pool.  We also invite you to pet the dolphin as it swims by so you can feel just how smooth these guys really are.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Freeport Snorkel and Dolphin Experience 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!
