Every now and then, a bucket list item comes along that the entire family will want to tick off, and swimming with dolphins is most definitely one of them. The fact that there are so many few opportunities around the world to do something like that simply adds to the allure, and if you happen to be spending some quality time in Freeport Bahamas, it would be a shame not to experience something so magical. The Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin is one of the most intelligent, most trainable creatures on the face of the earth, so much so, that you will often hear them referred to as sentient beings. It’s true - Dolphins have a complex range of emotions, and a sensory system that is unparalleled. It is hard to resist their charm and hilarity, and there’s a good reason why these clowns of the sea always seem to have a permanent grin on their face. The bottlenose dolphins living off the coast of Freeport dolphin tours provide visitors with a unique opportunity to learn about their, hunting patterns, behaviours and what we can do to preserve their shrinking habitats. Freeport’s Underwater Explorers Society (UNEXSO) has created an opportunity for visitors to spend time in the water with dolphins, touching them, kissing them, playing and petting them. There are several different types of encounters, and each can be customized to your level of comfort. Dip your toes in and let the dolphin come to you, or submerge yourself fully, and get a feel for what it’s like to float next to one of the ocean’s most agile creatures.
