At Dolphin Quest Bermuda, guests can now discover dolphins up-close and help support marine mammal conservation and education. The lagoon, located inside the National Museum of Bermuda, offers visitors as young as three the opportunity to touch, feed, and play with bottlenose dolphins. Similarly, the Sea Quest package includes a water-scooter tour of a coral reef and a deep-water dolphin encounter, and guests can enjoy a special Trainer for a Day experience, which allows them to learn dolphin care firsthand.
Dolphin Quest Bermuda originally opened in 1996 at the Fairmont Southampton Princess Hotel, then relocated in 1999 to a large protected ocean-fed lagoon within a fort that is home to the National Museum of Bermuda. The dolphin lagoon is filled with saltwater that enters through a tunnel connecting the facility to the open ocean.
The dolphin’s home was expanded in 2016 to include the Ocean Habitat sanctuary that extends beyond the museum walls, and allows the dolphins to swim out into the ocean waters via a connecting tunnel, making the sanctuary one of the largest and most natural dolphin habitats in the world. Other facilities include a gift shop, a deck for relaxation, a learning centre, and lockers, changing rooms, outdoor showers, and nearby bathrooms.
Dolphin Quest began in the early 1980s in Hawaii. With resort partners in Bermuda, Hawaii, and Oahu, Dolphin Quest today inspires tens of thousands of guests each year to care about and help protect dolphins in the wild.
