Blue Lagoon Island Dolphin Encounters, home of Flipper, is an all-natural ocean habitat on an extraordinary private island. At Dolphin Encounters, you have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play with dolphins before marveling at their spectacular leaps and bows, and meet amazing sea lions. Also, you can spend the day enjoying one of the most secluded beaches in The Bahamas at famous Blue Lagoon Island.

We offer guests various opportunities to interact with our family of sea animals, including the Dolphin Encounter, the Dolphin Swim and the Sea Lion Encounter. You can get an up-close and personal view of the gentle marine mammals, if you participate as a Program Observer. The programs provide a fun interactive orientation, briefly covering the natural history of our animals, and you can learn animal training techniques, ocean conservation and Watchable Wildlife Guidelines.
