Close Encounter Program

A close-up encounter with the most fascinating animals in the sea. An unforgettable experience for all ages.

A short ferry boat ride along the south shore will take you to Sanctuary Bay, home of The Dolphin Experience and a pod of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.

Once at the facility, you can observe the friendly Atlantic bottlenose dolphins up close and personal.

Sit with your feet in the water as the dolphins swim around you, or step into shallow water and touch these amazing animals, take pictures from our observation deck, hear interesting facts about the dolphins and ask questions of our animal care staff.

While being given the opportunity to touch a dolphin in waist-deep high water, the public is also invited to engage in discussion with marine mammal specialists at The Dolphin Experience. This highly educational yet fun program is a great way to experience the animals–up close and personal–and provides excellent photo opportunities.

The Close Encounter program is a two hour interaction excursion with boats leaving The Underwater Explorer’s Society in the Port Lucaya area at 10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily.

Cost is $59.00 per person, children five and under are admitted free of charge.
