This experience is the perfect opportunity to escape the over-crowded pools of other dolphin programs and interact with Balmoral’s dolphins right from the beach as you enjoy a private island getaway.

Upon arrival on the island, you will be greeted by the staff, the hostess will indicate the time of your Dolphin Encounter and then walk down to the water and wade out to a waist-deep depth where you will have an up-close meeting with your dolphin. For approximately the next 30 minutes, your trainer will introduce you to your dolphin, answer all your questions, demonstrate simple as well as more complex behaviors. A photo capturing that moment can be purchased at the end of your encounter. Our island follows security measures of social distancing to guarantee the safety and security of our guests. No observers will be allowed in the Marine Park.

The rest of the day is then yours to enjoy by doing as much or as little as you please. On the sugar white beach, you can lounge on your included lounge chair or enjoy the refreshing azure blue Bahamian water.

A bar is open, and a small snack menu is available for purchase to be ordered and served to your beach chair without contact.

For your convenience, restrooms are located around the island as well as freshwater showers and foot baths. Umbrellas are available on the beach on a first-come basis.
