We did the Sting Ray/Beach Day experience while on a Royal Caribbean cruise. We have been to Nassau many times, but never to Blue Lagoon. We will not be back! ...The Sting Ray experience was very disturbing as the animals clearly did not want to participate. My daughter, who is an animal lover and actually pick this outing, was in tears by the time we left. We were shocked on how these animals were made to perform for the visitors. There were several dolphins, some in wired cages, that were visibly unhappy and trying to escape. The poor treatment of the animals was our biggest take-away. But, the rest on the lagoon is no different - just an overpriced tourist attraction that abuses animals.Read moreRead less
Great experience. Very knowledgeable tour guide. Would recommend. We learned so much more than if we did it without a guide.
Started late, turned the ferry ride into a speedboat ride and captain lead-foot tossed us about in the choppy waters like a salad causing a little girl and her da...d to literally fly off the boat- luckily the crashed back a couple feet from where they were sitting. Another elderly gentleman also was also sent for a toss and his wife was mad at everyone. Once on the island (which quickly turned into a synonym of earth - scant space, overpopulation due to cruise passengers longing for land) we had to literally wait out the cruise visitors to finally get into the water. Once we did though, we were finally able to enjoy the beautiful water and powdery white sand and appreciate the multicolored water-scape. The dolphin and shark swims were great and the enthusiasm of the trainers and guides was unmatched. A bad start turned into a good one and we left the island not feeling as miserable as we did when we got there.Read moreRead less
