I am still trying to decide which of these excursions would be best for my family. My sons are 6 and 9 years old. I am concerned that the 6 year old will be afraid to swim with the dolphins even though he says he definately wants to do this! On the PearI island stingray swim, you enter the water from the beach right? If he was scared, he could just play on the beach.
But, am I making a mistake -- is the dolphin swim that special? Will he be ok and do the swim? I myself would love to swim with the dolphins.
We recommend you schedule the stingray swim for the children and a dolphin swim
for yourself. Dolphins can be a little overwhelming when you are in the water with them.
Stingrays at kids feet might be received better. We swam with the dolphins in Cozumel
and loved it, but think that kids might not appreciate or really like it. Just our thoughts.
Have a great trip.
When I was doing the royal dolphin swim I saw a couple young children doing the dolphin swim and they had life vest on them. Looked like they were having a blast as I was! I think you should ask the people when you sign up if they have an age or height restriction. Other than that I would think it would be a life time experience for him!
A child must be six at the Dolphin Encounter in Nassau in order to do the swim-- my son will have just turned six when we go on our cruise. The dolphin experience in Freeport has a height requirement which my son would not meet. Is this an indication that these gentle dolphins would be better suited for older children?
