Dolphin swimming was on my bucket list. Being 71 years of age with atrial fibrillation I was a tad concerned! I shouldn't have been because this was a superb experience! I'd recommend it to anyone without reservation!

It is on Paradise Island. Just a short walk from where you are staying. It's connected to Margaritaville at the start of the bridge to go back to Nassau.

Hi, I wanted to purchase the dolphin excursion but I was not quite sure about the guidelines with a child. I have a 4 year old that I would like to participate. Do I have to buy a ticket for him too?
