Dolphin Encounters

In 1989, two Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins were rescued from an aquarium that closed and relocated to a large, all-natural seawater bottlenose dolphin habitat on Treasure Island in The Bahamas… and Dolphin Encounters was born. Since then, more than two million visitors from around the world have visited Dolphin Encounters, which allows guests to interact with these gentle mammals in a safe, educational, and fun environment. After a 20-minute scenic boat ride through historic Nassau Harbour to private Blue Lagoon Island, guests are able to interactively experience dolphins and sea lions in their natural habitat while learning about these truly magnificent animals.

A lush green island sits in tropical waters under a sunny sky.
