These trained dolphins are playful and friendly, specializing in giving visitors a ride on the "dolphin surf," where one of these gentle creatures pushes you through the water with their snout.

What a beautiful Island! My family was very excited to be there. We were on Carnival Sunshine. We took a ferry over, by time we got there it was 11:15am, our Dolphin Swim was at 12pm, by time we were done at 1245pm my family went to swim while I stood in line at the photo shop for an hour, which I am still missing two photos and cannot easily get in touch with anyone to see if there is a way to get them), I then walked over to a crowded beach because we have 3 cruise boats doing excursions that day on the Island. I found my family to tell them I was going to stand in line for food. I literally stood in a 50min line to get to the food. We ate and only had 20min to walk through the gift shop and be back on the ferry. I wish that I could have enjoyed the beach with my family and the lines had run smoother, the photo company is having a malfunction, and everyone is having to wait over 72hours for their photos, and getting all the way home I'm missing the most important 2, my daughter kissing the dolphin and Salvador kissing her.
However, we will do it again, but just not go thinking that the "exclusive private beach experience" is what we're getting. Because it definitely was not a VIP feel to it and for the cost, we expected a little more I guess.

Great experience at the swim with dolphins!
Only problem was the begging for tips at the end. If you need more money to pay your employee’s salary, charge me more in the beginning.

This was our second trip to Blue Lagoon island for the dolphin encounter. The experience was great and staff are super friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo the lifeguard over on the beach side. He was very helpful in setting up an umbrella for us!

We just returned from a Blue Lagoon day. We enjoyed the Sea Lion adventure - Randy and Charlotte (sea lion) were amazing - truly twice what we were expecting. This is what get s the 4 stars. Beyond that the island was enjoyable but some was closed and the rest was somewhat overcrowded. Lunch was ok. If you go consider adding an extra excursion- maybe also dolphins and/or Segway's. Otherwise you are lounging on a crowded beach or sitting at the bar waiting on the boat back.

I would definitely go again - but plan my time with more to do.

Blue Lagoon island is beautiful but the Dolphin Encounters staff is very disorganized and needs major improvement for the check in process. When we arrived for check in on time and we were told to just wait outside until called. We waited 20 minutes and no one came to get us checked in. When I asked if we can go in the office to check in they said no and just keep waiting. Finally I asked another staff member and she said yes we should go inside to check in. It took almost 30 minutes in line to check in. Only 3 people in front of me during this wait. Four people at the check in office but it seemed only one was actually working and was extremely slow. The others either chatting or just walking around. The boat ride was fine but prepare to get drenched if you sit on the first level. There are better tour operators in Nassau.

This island was absolutely beautiful. The staff here were very friendly and was there to assist. It rained and stormed as soon as we arrived, but in the end it turned out to be a beautiful excursion. Crystal was absolutely amazing! She was very professional and took great care of us. She made the experience even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this location!

Sold to us via Royal Caribbean and wish I never bothered. Advert said it would be a tour out to the island, when really your just bundled onto 1 of a couple boats.

When you arrive to the island, only VIP guests are allowed off first. So they gathered up the VIP guests then failed to tell us that we could now get off. Eventually us non VIP pheasants decided to walk off.

It was also sold with a lunch package with island inspired cusine (hot dogs and burgers). My burger was so bad I didn't eat it.

Staff were extremely rude, you feel like a real inconvenice to them.

One example, there was at most 2-3 families in front of me at the rental station but it took them at least 30 minutes to get to me only to be told there was no towels.

By this stage there must have been 20-30 people behind me, so I asked her why didn't she let everyone know there were no towels instead of leaving us waiting? I got no response.

Blue Lagoon is a lovely location but it was a terrible experience.

We went on the adults only Blue Lagoon excursion. Highly recommend. There were maybe 20 of us there on the beach, so relaxing and quiet compared to the other side of the island, which was filled with a huge amount of families and kids. My friends and I enjoyed the complimentary Bahama Mamas, which were brought to us by the attentive staff. Crystal seemed to be in charge, and she was lovely. She went out of her way to see that everyone needs were met. She really added to the experience with her presence. The water was absolutely beautiful, and I really enjoyed the space and relative seclusion we had. Yes, the beach area is somewhat rocky as you get into the water, but Crystal will direct you to the tidal pool, which is less rocky and a good place to get in and explore.

We did the adult day at Blue Lagoon with Carnival Cruises and it was amazing. Our every need was taken care of. Crystal and crew were absolutely amazing. The food and drinks were awesome. The beach was clean and not crowded. Thanks Crystal for taking such good care of us. You are amazing!!!
I had been there before with my mom but to the dolphin, sting ray and sea lion excursion. We met Damon and just loved him. So, when I went back my mom wanted a picture of him. He actually remembered us! He is amazing and it was so nice that he remembered my mom and I. He is so helpful and shows that he really cares about the people that visit.

Also, wanted to mentioned the fun ride to and from the ship on the taxis. We had so much fun with the crew.

We will be back soon. Love Blue Lagoon!

Did the Swim with the Rays as an excursion from Royal Caribbean cruise. Long walk from the dock to where the Rays are located. Not much hands on, mostly snorkel and search. Bought the photos but NEVER delivered. After a month waiting had to stop payment on charge card. Don't waist your time or $$$.
