Default dolphin encounter

I'm going on Majesty to the Bahamas in May. Just wondering if anyone has ever done either of the dolphin encounters in Nassau and if they're worth the cost?

I've done the one in Cozumel and while it is expensive, I thought it was worth it.

I did the one in Marguerita Island Venezuela- VERY COOL!!! well worth the $109 a person!

Just think how often you get to actually swim with a dolphin and even ride on one!!

I felt bad at first knowing they were in captivity, but I tried to put it out of my mind since I went with a few friends and iether I was going to sit on the side and watch or swim with them.. So of course I swam with them.

We got to hold their back dorsal fin and they rode us around the pool. I felt like a trainer in an aquarium in that moment! They feel so different than I imagined! Like a thin sheath of rubber, not as hard and rough as I thought.

i say book it! its a once in a life time thing.

We did the dolphin encounter in Tortola and I highly recommend the dolphin swim Excursion it was well worth the money we paid. Just watch out for the pictures and videos they sell of your swim kind of expensive and yet we brought all the pictures and the DVD.

We did it in both Cuba and Mexico and it is definitely worth the dollars!

I did the excursion with my daughter and daughter-in-law in Cozumel. We thought it was totally worth it and would do it again.
