    we loved the dolphin encounter in the bahamas on the DREAM-we will be in tortola on the Fantasy in April-are there other activities at this dolphin encounter such as beach area/chairs/bars/etc? We are considering another excursion if there is no beach time

    Ahoy Kristen –

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are so excited to hear about your adventures on the Disney Fantasy, and your vacation will be here before you know it.  Tortola is a beautiful island with fabulous beaches, and I am sure that your pirate crew will have a swashbuckling time there. When I looked into the Dolphin Encounters and Dolphin Swim in Tortola, I was not able to see any beach time.  All of the Dolphin excursions are only about the dolphins because they occur in a sheltered lagoon that is not directly adjacent to a nice beach. 

    Tortola is most famous for its breathtaking beaches, and I suggest that you consider a beach trip instead. The Island Drive Tour and Beach Break will allow you to sit at the beach in a lounger and enjoy a drink while your sea pups frolic in the sea. Or if you desire a resort experience at the beach try Long Bay Lunch and Beach where you will have access to a resort, bar and beach activities. If your heart is set on the dolphins, you can do that excursion early and take a taxi from the pier to Cane Garden Bay or Nancy Cay Marina to enjoy some beach time. Kristen, thank you for sharing your vacation plans with us and we hope to see you here again soon!
