Trips for your family or group
Transform your Life!
Do I need a
passport and a visa to come to Bimini?
A valid passport is required to visit
the Bahamas. No visa is required.
Do you always find
the dolphins? Unlike marine parks where you book
your 45 minutes with a captive dolphin in a concrete
pool, part of the magic of these trips is that we are
interacting with sentient mammals who live by their own
agendas. We have an average 80+% success rate in finding
the dolphins every time we go out. Not knowing where or
when we will find them (they usually find us!) is part
of the excitement of these trips. There is nothing in
the world like getting in the water with a wild dolphin
who swims over to say hello to you because he/she
desires to connect with YOU out of their own free
will... It is an out-of-this-world experience that will
open your heart in ways you can only imagine...
Is it safe to swim
with wild dolphins? Much
safer than swimming with captive dolphins! The stories
of people being injured by dolphins are from those in
captivity. Wild dolphins are free and wild, and if they
don't want to be with us, they simply swim away. And if
any wild animal acted aggressive or agitated, it is
common sense to leave them alone. (See our
Dangerous' page) The reason we swim with these
dolphins is that they consistently, playfully and
lovingly seek out interaction with us.
sharks??? This is probably
the most frequently asked question I get... Sharks are
not the vicious predator that TV has made them out to
be. I know, I swim with them a lot separate from our
dolphin trips. (And yes, we can add a shark feed to a
custom trip). Sharks are (other than man) one of the
dolphins main predators, and so the dolphins are very
aware of any shark their surroundings at all times.
Because of this, and the fact that we swim with the
dolphins in crystal clear waters that are only 30 feet
deep, it is a very safe encounter. Nurse sharks: The
bottlenose dolphins frequently have nurse sharks that
follow them to feed off their scraps. Nurse sharks are
like sucker fish; they have no teeth, are bottom feeders
and non aggressive. We are with you in the water and are
monitoring your safety at all times.
What's included in
the trip price? Unless otherwise noted, the trip
price includes all on-island lodging, most all meals,
(usually one dinner and maybe one lunch out on the
town), all on-island transportation and all boat trips.
What is not included is your airfare to Bimini, tips for
our local guides (we collect tips at the end of the trip
and disperse it to our local guides. We recommend each
person give a tip of $100 - $150 for the entire trip),
snorkel gear (we give you instructions of where and what
to get), and travel insurance. While we don't insist
that you get it, we always recommend Travel
Insurance/Trip Interruption Insurance for your own
How safe it it in
Bimini? Bimini is a very safe place to bring your
family and friends. Unlike Nassau or Grand Bahama,
Bimini is a small island, the people are friendly and
everyone knows everybody else. We can hold your
passports and valuables for your comfort if you wish.
Do I have to be in
shape to come? We have people of all ages and
abilities on our trips. I've personally brought babies
under 12 months old into the water with the dolphins, as
well as people with various physical limitations. It is
our desire to include everyone, and yet there are
limitations on who we can get into the water. Please
call us with your questions.
How old do you
have to be? Should I wait until my kids are older? I
brought my son Mark to swim with the dolphins as soon as
I had my own life-changing experience. He was 3 and a
half years old and he still remembers it. If I had known
about the dolphins earlier, I would have arranged for
him to meet them when he was still in his mom's belly...
that's how powerful and profound the
dolphin experience is to me.
get in the water with the dolphins? YES! We have
many non-swimmers come on our trips. We outfit you with
life preservers and enough floatation that you feel safe
and comfortable in the water. We've had many
non-swimmers come on our trips and leave their
non-swimming status behind!
How do I make my
flight arrangements? Given most flights to Bimini
are in the morning from Ft. Lauderdale, you might find
it necessary to fly into Ft. Lauderdale the evening
before. There is more specific information on the
