a close-up encounter with the most fascinating animals 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.

While being given the opportunity to actually touch dolphins in waist-deep water, you can also engage in discussions with our marine mammal specialists here at The Dolphin Experience. This highly educational and fun program is a great way to have an experience the animals 'up close and personal'. The Close Encounter program is a two hour interaction excursion with boats leaving UNEXSO in the Port Lucaya area at 10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily.
