The WildQuest Retreat Lodge is set on the beach in Porgy Bay, a fishing village on one of the smaller, quieter Bahamian islands. From the lodge runs The Dolphin-Human Connection, a group that provides week long retreats based around the belief that contact with wild dolphins can have a therapeutic effect on mind, body and spirit.

During the week guests stay at the retreat building and participate in a program that includes yoga lessons every morning and swimming with the dolphins in their natural habitat daily. The yoga concentrates on breathing techniques, such as conscious breathing, in order to strengthen the connection between human and dolphin.

The retreats can be quite pricey, but there are discounts available for children under 17 and the website often runs special discount prices. Although the usual retreat is a week long it is possible to stay for longer on this paradise island sharing in the joyful, calm lives of the wild dolphins.

In a 5-star rating, WildQuest is a "6" plus !!!

Just returned from a week at WildQuest. It was truly EXCEPTIONAL in every way! The staff are all "heart-people"; the food was fabulous; the retreat facility was sparkling clean; and, the dolphin interaction was way beyond GREAT!!! Oh, yes, I will return (like my friend who first went last summer and is headed back this July)!
