posted in: Channel NCLFreestyle | 0

After an approximate 30-minute bus ride from the pier to Port Lucaya, you’ll arrive at the world-famous Unexso’s facility for an unforgettable dolphin experience. You’ll receive a complimentary Dolphin Experience reusable shopping tote. Then, take a 20-minute ferry boat ride along the south shore of the island over to the nine-acre Dolphin Experience Lagoon, for an interactive swim with these wonderful creatures. This lagoon is home to 14n Atlantic bottle nose dolphins. Receive an educational briefing from the experts and gather in small groups of six participants for swimming turns. Swim with the dolphins while plunging underwater to play or race them above the surface. Perform behaviors with the dolphins and ask them to turn around, speak, splash you or wave. Swim in between them for a hug and kiss while the photographer takes photos of you. Each group will be in the water with the dolphins for approximately 20-25 minutes. During this interaction, the animal care staff will provide you with facts about these wonderful animals. While others are in the water you can take photos of the dolphins and other participants from the observation deck. After your program, take a look at several African Macaws and Cockatoos or take a dip in the 17 foot deep pool at Unexso.
