    My son is interested in swimming with the Dolphins in Nassau. There are several different choices and I was leaning towards the lower cost (less than $200) versus the ~$300 experiences. Any advice? Has anyone ever done any of them?

    Hi Kimberly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I bet Captain Mickey is busy right now getting ready to welcome you and your family aboard Disney Cruise Line! You will create so many magical memories while sailing to paradise. One of my favorite ways to capture our memories aboard each Disney Cruise is by getting pictures taken by the onboard photographers. Some of my favorite family photos have been taken on Disney Cruises!

    Splashing in the gorgeous turquoise waters with dolphins is the perfect adventure while visiting Nassau! My family has both swam with dolphins as well as experienced the shallow water dolphin excursions, too; we've loved them both! If your son wants to actually swim with dolphins, the Port Adventures like the Blue Lagoon Island Dolphin Swim and Atlantis Dolphin Cay Deep Water Interaction & Aquaventure are both wonderful choices! The prices of both these unforgettable excursions are a little higher, but your son will have more time in the water and actually get the chance to swim alongside dolphins as well as be pushed through the water by them.

    If you're looking at a dolphin excursion for under $200, take a peek at the Blue Lagoon Island Dolphin Encounter. Your son will be standing on a platform and interacting with the dolphins in shallow water. Even though he won't actually be swimming with them, he'll love making friends with these beautiful animals. He may even get a smooch or two from one!

    Kimberly, I'm wishing your entire family a "fin"-tastic time during your upcoming voyage!
