Enjoy an up-close and personal encounter with a nurse shark on Blue Lagoon Island and then reflect on this once-in-a-lifetime experience while relaxing on the beach. A short but scenic cruise across Nassau Harbor will bring you to the private island, where you will ease into the shallow crystal-clear waters. Swimming with sharks may sound risky but these are nurse sharks, a slow-moving, mild-mannered species that typically rests on the bottom of the sea during the day. With the trainer standing nearby, you can feed a nurse shark, cradle it in your arms, rub its smooth dolphin-like skin and then snorkel alongside the shark. The experience will be exhilarating and make for an epic story that you will be telling for years to come. Free time follows, during which you can relax on the sugar-white beach, browse the waterfront shops and rent water sports equipment if you want another thrill.

• Feed the nurse shark, rub its skin, cradle it in your arms and snorkel through its habitat.
• Spend hours relaxing on the pristine beach that rims Blue Lagoon Island.
