The Atlantic Spotted Dolphin and the Bottlenose Dolphin are the residents of Bimini Island, and there is a high chance of seeing both during the trip. The dolphin pods in Bimini are unique because they naturally seek out interactions with humans. You’ll have the chance to interact directly with these animals and watch them explore their world.
Jay Clue, Dive Ninja award-winning underwater photographer & conservationist, will show you the best of Bimini with environmental scientist Kelly Melillo Sweeting. Kelly has been working with Bimini dolphins for over 18 years, and she will be joining us throughout the week to teach us about the pods and her dolphin research.
Our expedition will begin in Bimini, the Bahamas. Our first day of the trip will be relaxed as people check-in and get settled. In the evening, Jay Clue will give a presentation introducing our soon-to-be dolphin friends and what’s in store for the week. The next day, after lunch, will be our first dolphin expedition! The schedule will continue with afternoon boat trips for the next few days, with a total of 4 afternoons in the water with dolphins, giving you as much time in the water as possible.
Dolphins are most active in the afternoon, so our schedule works with theirs, but not to worry, we have morning expeditions, including snorkeling & freediving with Caribbean reef sharks and a local wreck & reef. The morning activities are flexible, and you can choose to take a morning off to explore the beaches or hang out by the pool. Throughout the week, there will also be talks and presentations led by Kelly & Jay Clue, as well as the option to take photo workshops to bring home some incredible memories.
During our trips out on the ocean, we’ll keep an eye out for eagle rays, different species of sharks, and many more marine inhabitants of the Bahamas!
