THE ADVENTURE
We are seeking out encounters with friendly Atlantic spotted dolphins and bottlenose dolphins off Bimini Island, Bahamas.  Bimini is famous, not only for their great hammerheads and reef sharks, but also for their friendly spotted dolphins. We will spend four days swimming with Atlantic spotted dolphins and hopefully bottlenose dolphins, which occasionally hang around the spotted dolphins. 

This adventure is open to all experience levels and is a great adventure for the whole family. 

Please Note; These are wild dolphin encounters and everyday is different. Some days, the dolphins may be hard to find and not very social. However, the pod that spends their time here off Bimini are extremely social and often choose to interact with snorkelers and have been known to stay with us for hours.

You can join your host, Eli Martinez for some birding and reptile photography off Bimini Island. Depending on when we set off to find the spotted dolphins during the day (every season is different).
