ShoreTrips says...

I have learned, in the last few months, the difference between the many dolphin experiences that are promoted throughout the Caribbean. Some arrangements break my heart when I see these large mammals in a confined space. Others earn my respect. This company is a member of the Alliance of Marine Mammals Parks and Aquariums, as well as the International Marine Animal Trainers. They work hard at keeping their dolphin family content.

Your heart will be racing as you are directed to one of three swim platforms, which you'll share with about 25 others waiting for a dolphin kiss. Small groups of 10 will enter waist-deep water, where you'll interact with the friendly dolphins--getting a kiss, giving a hug, and watching a playful dance.

Photos will be taken of your dolphin kiss and will be available for purchase after your encounter.

Non-participants may observe those in their party who are taking part in a dolphin program. There is a $30 fee, per observer, for the ferry ride from Paradise Island to Blue Lagoon. This observer fee is payable directly to the ferry and no reservations are necessary.

For an even closer experience with the dolphins, try our SWIM WITH THE DOLPHINS excursion.

This trip also includes a day at the Blue Lagoon Island, so enjoy your day at Blue Lagoon Beach with lounging, relaxing, and lunch!

Dolphin excursions are in great demand. This must be booked several weeks ahead and there is an even longer lead time during the high season. Book early to avoid disappointment.
