The Blue Lagoon is an absolute “must do” when in the Bahamas! There’s something for everyone to do whether you want to swim with Flipper (the world-famous dolphin) and the other cute dolphins, relax on the beach, go snorkeling or engage in all sorts of water sports offered on the island, or just sit back and drink some delicious fruity cocktails.
Since I found out about the Blue Lagoon excursion on our second to last day in the Bahamas, I wound up going later in the morning than I originally would have had I known about it sooner. I just wanted to get there as soon as possible and enjoy the day.
There are a couple different excursion packages available for a trip to the Blue Lagoon. The Dolphin Encounters program allows you to swim with the dolphins and gives you an opportunity to kiss, hug, dance, and play with them. This package is about $100.
The other package is a “beach day package” (about $50) that allows you to still experience the dolphins and sea lions from an observation deck, gives you access to the beach and water sports. Both programs include lunch.
The movies “Splash” and the “Perfect Storm” were filmed at the Blue Lagoon. The Perfect Storm depicted how in 1991, a storm cut the island in two at the northwestern corner of the lagoon where the current bridge is located.
If you plan on visiting the Bahamas, don’t miss out on this awesome excursion! You may just regret it if you don’t, MON!
