Our trip kicks off at Fort Lauderdale airport where we will be met by your ninja trip leader; conservationist & photographer — Jay Clue, before boarding a private charter flight (included in your expedition price) to Bimini Shark Lab. Soon as we touch down we’ll get settled in and start our first shark research activities. We’ll experience some of the islands most enthralling shark research activities including learning how to do a shark work up session, take a shark handling course, learn how & why they tag sharks, work with juvenile shark pups in a mangrove nursery, releasing juvenile sharks back into the wild, and so much more. And these aren’t just classes where you watch the pros do all the fun stuff, instead you will be actively involved and working hands on with the shark scientists. And when we’re not involved in activities you’ll have time to chat and share stories with the incredible shark scientists and ocean lovers that make Bimini Shark Lab one of the best in the world.
After 4 full on days of working with sharks we will hop over to North Bimini for some well deserved relaxing and fun dives. But this is Dive Ninjas, so you know it’s not going to be some basic reef dives! Instead, we will be diving with the rare Great Hammerheads that visit Bimini every winter. We can see upwards of 10 individual great hammerheads on a dive. Coming face to face with these massive 4+ meter long giants is an experience you definitely won’t soon forget. Plus we’ll have the chance to see tiger sharks, reef sharks, nurse sharks, bull sharks, and more! After an incredible 8 days on this shark filled island we’ll say our good byes and hop back on our private charter flight to Fort Lauderdale.
