Dolphin Encounters FAQs - Cruise Ship Guests

How do I get from the cruise ship to the island?
You would be required to catch a taxi (automobile and not a water taxi) from the cruise ship pier to the Paradise Island Ferry Terminal for check-in.

IMPORTANT: If you have purchased the Close Dolphin Encounter or the Dolphin Swim directly with your cruise ship (either online or on board the ship), you are asked to meet our representative at the gangway at the time specified on the ticket that will be distributed to you on board the ship. This would allow for a direct transfer from the cruise ship pier to our facility. If you have booked your program directly with Dolphin Encounters Ltd., or a travel or tour agency, you are required to check in at the Paradise Island Ferry Terminal at the time specified for your booking.

*** If you are visiting Dolphin Encounters Ltd. as a part of your cruise vacation, please remember to bring along a towel and cash/credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and AMEX only) for any purchases that you may require while at our facility.

What programs are sold aboard the ship?
The participating cruise ships sell the Encounter program, and some cruise ships also offer the Dolphin Swim program. If the Dolphin Swim is not offered by your cruise line, and you wish to participate in the Swim, you can book directly with us in advance by calling (242) 363-1003 or send a request via e-mail to info@dolphinencounters.com. You may also have an opportunity to upgrade to the Swim program once you are on Blue Lagoon Island.

All rates are subject to change, at any time, to include additional taxes and fees as demanded legally by the Government of The Bahamas.
