The popular Bahamas Dolphin Encounters specializes in creating opportunities for humans to interact safely with dolphins. Located in Nassau on Blue Lagoon Island, the Bahamas Dolphin Encounters is home to about seven dolphins that live, eat, and play at Blue Lagoon Island. The Bahamas Dolphin Encounters is an environmentally friendly company that makes the dream many people have of swimming with dolphins a reality.
The first opportunity to swim with dolphins Bahamas at Blue Lagoon Island came in 1989, when the first dolphins arrived at the small facility. Since that time, more dolphins have been added and the facility has grown. The site has enjoyed instant success and been a major attraction for tourists since its conception. In 1995, a new facility was built to better accommodate the dolphins, and it is this facility that remains today.
There are two main programs to choose from if you would like to play or swim with dolphins Bahamas. To swim with dolphins Bahamas you can choose the Swim with the Dolphins package. You and a few other participants will have thirty minutes to touch, kiss, feed, and dance with the dolphins. Prior to your swim with a dolphin in Bahamas you will be given and education presentation with information on dolphin safety, well being, and how to respect the animals during your swim.
Your second choice is the Close Encounter swim with a dolphin in Bahamas.
