ShoreTrips says...

Small group dolphin swims combined with a private adult beach experience makes for a happy day!

Now there's a special place for adults to find some quiet, romantic time, take a nap, or read a good book. You have chosen to pair this relaxation time with our Best Swim With the Dolphins. We recommend taking the 10:15 or 11:45 ferry to Blue Lagoon Island to maximize your beach time before the dolphin program.

Begin with a 30-minute scenic cruise through the historic harbor of Nassau, which will bring you to Blue Lagoon Island's paradise. Now, far from the hustle of downtown Nassau, you will be directed to your spot, which will also be a distance from the cavorting families located elsewhere on the island. Your VIP escort will show you to the beachfront lined with white sand, blue water, and coconut palms that deliver a shady tropical background for your day. The garden area will serve as the gathering spot, a lobby so to speak, where you will be greeted with a champagne mimosa, a refreshing face towel, and lots of smiles. Lockers are provided for safekeeping. The private beach will be adults only and you can select your lounge chair, accompanied by a shared umbrella, and relax. Butler service is provided, so you need not stand up again until it is time to leave, unless you choose to.

Your stay also includes a delicious lunch of grilled fish, chicken, and more, which is served buffet style and accompanied by fresh fruits, vegetables, and salad. Double hammocks are scattered about the island. Water, iced tea, and lemonade are available at all times throughout your stay. After a couple more mimosas (ala carte), you may feel like testing the aqua bounce, included in your stay.

Your Swim with the Dolphins experience will take place during this stay and you'll have the unique opportunity for playful, educational interaction with these wonderful mammals in the beautiful turquoise waters of an ocean lagoon. The program begins with an orientation, which briefly covers the natural history of dolphins, animal training techniques, ocean conservation, and Watchable Wildlife Guidelines.

Once in your life jacket, you'll enter the water in a small group and swim and play with the dolphins for 30 minutes. You'll experience the joy of a dolphin hug and kiss, dance with our stars, and then marvel at their strength as you're propelled across the lagoon during the amazing foot push!

Throughout the program, trainers will focus on allowing everyone to enjoy a high degree of interaction with the dolphins while teaching about these amazing mammals in their natural habitat.

Professional photo and video staff will be capturing your swim on film so you'll have a chance to take home priceless souvenirs of your memorable experience.

Please note that the tour length includes the ferry ride to and from Blue Lagoon Island, where the dolphin facility is located, but does not include the time it takes for the taxi or water taxi ride to the ferry dock.
