My experience may be different than others because we have done Blue Lagoon and the Atlantis for the dolphin experience and much preferred Atlantis experience. Things might have changed since our Blue Lagoon dolphin encounter was several years ago and the Atlantis one was this April. At Blue Lagoon we sat on some metal ledge and than the dolphins came up to us as we got into the water. At Atlantis we were in the water in our wet suits and had more freedom to move. The encounter time was also a lot more lengthy at Atlantis. We also spent the rest of the day at the water park, which is right there, so it worked out well in terms of having a fun-filled day.

My DS is 4 and the friends that are going with us have a DS8 and DD4. For anyone who had done the dolphin encounter with younger children, have the children been afraid of the dolphins? Are the trainers patient with the younger children?

My daughter changed her mind at the last minute and got scared. I told her we paid $xxx amount of money and I wanted her to at least try. The trainer was AWESOME with her. Just let her know when you get in the water and they will do all they can to make the kids comfortable. She was extremely patient, and spent extra time with her. She had the dolphin do different things than she did with the other people. It was an amazing experience!
