It’s Better in The Bahamas: Darla’s Dolphin Encounter
Posted by: Nassau Paradise Island on February 6, 2016
Have you ever gone swimming with dolphins? Dolphins are fascinating and popular animals, and here in The Bahamas, it’s not uncommon to spot them frolicking in our turquoise waters if you’re out for a sail. In Nassau Paradise Island, visitors can get up close and personal with dolphins – a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many of our guests!
Darla just returned from a vacation in Nassau Paradise Island when she got to do just that! At the end of January, Darla spent a week at Comfort Suites, which included a day at Aquaventure at Atlantis and an excursion to Dolphin Encounters. Looking back on her trip, Darla says Dolphin Encounters was her favorite part of the vacation.
Located on Blue Lagoon Island in The Bahamas, a 20-minute boat ride from Nassau Paradise Island, Dolphin Encounters has welcomed more than two million visitors since it was opened in 1989. After a short orientation session, guests can dance, sing, and swim with dolphins, then pick up a photo or video souvenir of their encounter before heading back to their resort. Dolphin Encounters also features a sea lion encounter program where small groups can spend time interacting with these friendly mammals.
For guests who’d like to stay dry, there’s an observation deck where you can watch all the magic happen – or simply purchase an all-inclusive beach day pass to experience the natural beauty of Blue Lagoon Island for a day.
Darla says that in order to truly enjoy your Nassau Paradise Island experience, it’s important to be in a true vacation state of mind.
“Take it easy, don’t rush, enjoy the scenery…it’s amazing!” she says.
