Swim with Dolphins

Swimming with dolphins is on many people's bucket lists, and with the plethora of dolphin experience operators in the Bahamas, there's no better place to do it. Easy to get to whether you're staying at an all-inclusive resort or visiting by cruise ship, Bahamas dolphin encounters typically take about an hour to an hour and a half, with about 30 minutes in the water with the playful creatures, almost all of which have been bred in captivity. Expect to be kissed by a dolphin and shake a fin. In some cases you'll get a dolphin-fueled foot push swim wherein a dolphin pushes you forward by pressing on your feet. Some operators also offer sea lion encounters. Dolphin Encounters, based in Nassau, is one popular tour operator.
