Default Freeport Bahamas

I'm going on my first cruise in May. What is fun to do while docked in Freeport Bahama?
I've heard of a Dolphin encounter/swim at Lucaya. Has anyone done that, and know approx. how much it is to do?



101 days until I get hitched in St.Thomas!

It's at the UNESCO (or something like that) site. I believe they have various encounters, from being in the water with them ($75) to touching/handling them ($130 or so). Folks say it is great. By the way, Fodor's book on the Bahamas is VERY good. Try their site or a local library (I'm lucky to have a library in my neighborhood :-)

I believe it is UNEXCO and it is excellent.

Looks like the dolphin encounter has gone up to $69.00. Did you feel it was worth the money? Sounds like a blast!

On the encounter, you stand in waist deep water and "pet" the dolphins, as well as get a tour of the facility. The dolphins aslo put on quite a show of leaps and such. These are semi-wild dolphins that can actually leave if they choose, and that makes this one special.
