What sets us apart

Timid or Non-swimmers Welcome

Worried that your lack of swimming skills will keep you from meeting a dolphin? DON'T BE!!! Our Dolphin Encounter program takes place in shallow water where you will stand on a platform. The dolphins will swim up and over the platform where you can meet them one-on-one. We want you to feel comfortable and to enjoy the program as well. We welcome all timid and non-swimmers and encourage you to make your dolphin dream come true.

Dolphin Encounters, Provider Of Swim With Dolphin Programs, Launches Free Educational App For Ipad & Iphone
Dolphin Encounter's News


Leading provider of Swim with Dolphin Programs brings “Dolphin Fun Facts” App to iPhone and iPad users


Dolphin Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island has launched its first app entitled “Dolphin Fun Facts!” available for free from iTunes. Designed for download for both iPad and iPhone, the educational application was created for users to make a connection with dolphins and to inspire conservation actions.

“The apps available about dolphins were mainly games or entertainment, and we wanted to provide a free educational app that would give the user an excellent general background about dolphins as well as ways to preserve and protect them and their environment,” said Robert Meister, Managing Director of Dolphin Encounters.

“We are always looking for engaging ways for people to connect and learn about marine mammals. We felt there was a real need for an educational marine mammal app and we are happy to have created one, which we believe is the first of its kind available.”

Appropriate for all ages, “Dolphin Fun Facts!” was developed by the Educational Department of Dolphin Encounters and its not-for-profit Dolphin Encounters-Project BEACH which provides educational programs to local and visiting students.
The application contains photos, videos, sounds and information about the natural history of dolphins, research, behaviours and husbandry.

“iPads in particular have become an important teaching tool at home and in classrooms and we felt an educational app was a perfect way to extend what we teach thousands of students every year through our educational programs at Dolphin Encounters,” adds Annette Dempsey, Education Director and Assistant Marine Mammal Director at Dolphin Encounters. “We have had excellent feedback from users regarding the content and ease of use of the app. It is as close as you can get to dolphins without getting wet.”

Since 1989, Dolphin Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island has offered visitors to The Bahamas from around the world a unique opportunity to interact with friendly marine mammals in an unparalleled all-natural marine habitat. Home to Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins, including the internationally famous ‘Flipper’, as well as California Sea Lions which include the stars of the movie ‘Andre’, this leading attraction continues to set the worldwide standard for swim with dolphin programs and sea lion encounters.

Dolphin Encounters – Project BEACH (Bahamas Education Association for Cetacean Health) conducts numerous educational and outreach programs. To participate in a program or sponsor a program please call Annette Dempsey at 394-2200.
