Dolphin Encounter

Dolphin Close Encounters

Enjoy a close-up encounter with the most fascinating mammals on the planet! An unforgettable experience for all ages! A short ferry boat ride along the south shore of Grand Bahama Island will take you to Sanctuary Bay, home of The Dolphin Experience, operated by UNEXSO (the Underwater Explorer's Society), and a pod of atlantic bottlenose dolphins.

Once at the facility you can observe the friendly 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 photographs from our observation deck, hear interesting facts about the dolphins and ask questions of our animal care staff.
